  1. Was going through my filing cabinet tonight and found this certificate and sticker, circa 1977....

  6. What bike is that in the pic? My guess is a mid-70s XS650. It's clearly a twin, the disc is in the right place, and the mid-70s XS had odd braces like that one, on and over the fender.

  7. Something about it (and I'm not entirely sure what) says Z750 twin to me.

  8. I agree; the 650's pipes weren't quite that 'swoopy'....

  10. Hornet,

    do ya reckon that tank shape could be a brit?

    pipes remind me of pre-commando Nortons, I'm lousy on pom stuff though.

  11. Late 850 Commando Norton? Instruments look too far apart for a Jap bike.

    {Don't mind us hi-jacking your thread, agro :rofl:}

  12. Its definitely a Honda CB. 1970's model. Unless the bike pic is reversed though, the front brakes are mounted on the wrong side???

  13. I've just had a trawl through Google Images and I think Matt's right after all. Have a look here

    The brake's right, the mudguard stay's right and the clocks are believable. If I squint, I can make the exhaust fit as well.

    I've also had a trawl through the photos MrsB's Amazing Brakeless Commando and I can safely state it ain't any Norton.
