    This caught my eye at Shepton Mallet.

    Great looking bike - is it a conversion or a regular Morini model?

    And for the 2-stroke & Panzer fans, this was at the NEC last November.



    ...along with its "rortier" brother..

    I spotted this when I went to the library (!) today. I've not seen one before, and I thought it looked "purposeful". :)

    Kawa Tengai, 650 single I think it was. Quite a rare beast, I think I've seen two in my life. :)

    Tengai had a hefty fuel tank, but severly brittle plastics.
    Not that uncommon in Sweden for some reason.

    Thanks, guys, for the Tengai info. :thumbsup:
    I parked in the same place today, but nothing so unusual...apart from the usual twist'n'go things there was a Pan and an Italian-registered 650 Transalp....plus my TA, of course.

    Back into town today. ....the Tengai's back, and a 125 Vespa, 61 or 62 reg. I hadn't realised they made geared models still :)


    Oops! I lied. ...it was a 12 reg. A young girl riding it, and wearing proper gear, unlike the usual"squids" :)

    I know it's no good without pics, but I was riding at the time! So I've included another pic instead ;)

    Don't know when I last saw a Tiger Cub on the road ... probably in the 70's (various school "chums" had them .....but I was out enjoying the sun in the Vale of Glamorgan on Tuesday,and saw two Cubs, separately. I hadn't realised how small they are!

    Not for the purists, but this was visiting a local Classic Bike show today, and we certainly don't see many out and about ...... or in this state;)

    Not usually a fan of that genere but that works for me. The mix of telescopics and disk with the hard tail areneat. My memories of them are covered in road muck with a sidecar on the side and leg shields/screen for the rider.

    ...... I suspect Messrs Phelon & Moore would be a little bemused by the belt drive and diaphragm clutch! Not the norm in Cleckheaton :)
