    I like to think of myself as retro more than classic bro' !
    Yes I bought that dog on XRV, here it is now. Needs some love (obviously) but not sure if I can be arsed now I've picked up a new love . it too needs some love , but not quite as much! :rolleyes: The newest isn't my usual style, but it was too good to pass up.Sooooo?

    Pah, you just pipped me to that AT, I took too long dithering and trying to sort logistics!

    As for the other beastie.... I've no idea, an old MZ

    If I'm honest Phil, it wasn't as good as it looked in the photo's. I bought it basically 'cause I happened to be passing on a trip from Cardiff up to my workshop in St Neots. Seemed a good idea at the time. Luckily I have plenty of AT spares so it won't be too bad, but still a big job.

    The new bike is well fast and 21 years old. ???

    QUOTE Do I get a prize ???

    No mate you get the bike ! :p:p
    ................. Got it MOT'd Saturday,went for a spin and after 45 minutes I went to put my leg down but could barely move it off the peg. Not used this prone position yet. Then in the middle of nowhere I turn the engine off to look at my phone then turn it back on to find a flat battery. Managed to bump it, but 65yrs old in 30+ degrees of heat on a flat road FFS.

    Pick it up when you're ready John ! :cool:

    Do you remember the AT project bike I sold to "Machiru" on XRV sometime ago ( the one HE turned into a minter) ? Well it's worse than that dog was ! ......If you'd have been a bit quicker you could of saved me the heartache of this one ! :rolleyes:

    Maybe not as reasonable as it looked in the pics Nick. Perhaps a rare stroke of luck for me!
