Average User Rating:
  • This bike runs incredibly well. It is very easy to ride. The only thing I find annoying is the kickstarter on the left hand side of the bike!

    Alloy and chrome were cleaned up. Paint was cut and polished and that is it.

    This particular bike was stored away for 20 years as a rolling chassis with no engine. My brother bought it and then sourced and engine for it. The result is what you see here. Another golden oldie bought back to life :)
  • The same as our red one it's a 196cc two stroke twin cylinder. Five speed gear box. Kick start only. It's good for 90mph and reasonably quick off the line for what it is :)

    Wow nice resto! Really lovely to see two old girls scrubbed up a treat. Hold their age quite well really. Fancy having to kickstart on the left that must mess with your head. Much of a kickback on them?

      The Red one was in very bad shape to start with. The Blue one was just very dusty and weathered but with no engine. Both have had full engine rebuilds (by my brother) 9 times out of ten, they start first kick. I can sometimes start them standing over them but I find it much easier to stand on the left of the bike and kickstart with my right leg..lol :) The have very little kick.
