    It’s funny how these bikes seem to shrink as the years go by , when they first came out they seem a decent size but now when you come across these bikes they are tiny . I spotted a Suzuki GT250 A a few months back and it was tiny ,yet when I had mine it seemed quite big and I used to carry a pillion a lot of the time

    Mine......that I sold recently, this was a 4,000m from new bike, carbs and tank drained before it was put to bed in 1978!... which made life vastly easier, it started, stopped and ran like a watch.......but...... it needed winding up constantly to make it move and it has a heavy throttle which makes it feel even slower than it is.


    With some regrets I sold it....they are a little diamond of a bike, but being three stone heavier than the last time I had one didn't help

    Hope yer 350B was one of the faster silver ones.

    Think you're mis-remembering. Your missus UR'd a frame to me from Neil Murray once but that bike used to belong to my old woodwork teacher.

    Ah, I thought the frame that sat in our shed was the one in the bike and now I’ve had another think the multiple boxes were Neil’s and he didn’t know what he’d bought until he collected it. We were storing it all and he got an instant erection when he saw what was there.

    I'm pretty sure that frame is now in Pats name and he insures it on the cheap to keep his NCD going

    Edit: There was a discussion about the terrible handling of the bike in the pic. Champ blamed the tyres but I was worried about the frame.
    So I bought a very cheap frame from Neil Murray but it was an F2 and Champ was right about the tyres......
    (Although fork oil and new shocks helped)
