Guaranteed Padmei repellent









The more I look at this R65(?), the more interesting it becomes...

Yep. And I still like the orange, no matter what you say! I believe it’s had a few more things done since that pic too.

An amazing amount of modifications have been made, The more you look the more you see. Apart from the obvious stuff I missed most of it until the third or fourth viewing.

No, the bikes are a husband & wife team that have just embarked on a RTW trip. The blue bike is his R100. They are both ex Paul Rooney. The husband had those head protectors I highlighted in the GS thread on KB a while ago.







The photos were taken a while ago when they were getting hard luggage made up at Lockyv7's.

isnt that all a bit technical for a SPFD?

I'm sure you will soon surpass my efforts - given my thread is all but dead - you can only show photos of trailriding in the Mungies so many time before it becomes a bit 'groundhog dayish'

Yup. If you are suffering Buyers Remorse I'm happy to take those off your hands!...The offer came at exactly the wrong time. But I should have bought them...

EDIT - just had a PM back & they are back from their shakedown trip. 16 days to go until they are away. So I'm getting a set also...

So that's a piss off

Barrie made me up a stainless 'Phreaky Phil' sidestand. Timing was excellent given the imminent arrival of the 'Hardhead' valve cover protectors, which will replace the crash bars. Unfortunately the sidestand it doesn't fit.. Bugger....

Gus has a large stainless collector box which Rob (the prior owner) made up. That thing is SOLID. And it sticks out too far, so that I can't bolt up the new sidestand.

Time for another cunning plan....
