I bought this
bike whilst I was still riding the 125 on 'L' plates and it was the
impetus for me to finally take my test. This UK market bike (MPH
calibrated speedo) was found on eBay with just 5011 miles on the
clock. I'm inclined to believe the mileage because the carburetor
slides were completely unworn. It had obviously spent a lot of time
standing around in damp conditions and I had to have the forks
re-chromed, replace the disc, and refurbish the carbs. It's the most
fantastic back lane scratcher, but the seat foam compresses to
nothing in about 30 miles resulting in a bad case of NBS.
really enjoyed this bike, it was the one I was using the least and I
eventually sold it to NLM to pay for the work that they'd done on my
Valentini project and to create some more space. I still have another
mostly complete 250, which will eventually turn into something interesting.
