I certainly hope not as I still need some spares for my bikes.

Ermm, I certainly hope so as I have a pile of stuff here to shift. Next autojumble stall already booked...

That's one of the reasons I'm not too worried about 'originality'.

In other news - the slow progress has just about finished and I'm about ready to take it on the road, I think I'll wait until spring though, as individual bikes have to be insured over here and with 7 in the stable it's getting a bit pricey (and likely to get more so with 'our' Brexit deal). :roll:

Only 11 months since the last report - though I have spent some time on it between. I managed to repair the left hand switch and obtain a new support, the engine starts easily and runs sweetly, but I found that the regulator was not working. Fortunately I had a spare old Boyer power box which I've fitted - giving me 12V and no need for a battery as a bonus. Refit some bodywork, etc tomorrow and I'll be ready to insure it and road test. I am not expecting a large bill as the company I'm with class any bike over 20 years old as 'collection', which decreases the premium considerably, plus you enter a scale whereby subsequent bikes are given discounts. I now have 6 bikes over 20, the last one is a BMW R850R and cost a princely 13€ for 3rd party cover (with recovery)! Pictures and ride report to follow (when we get some dry weather).

Bike is now insured and ready for final road testing / set-up. It's dry just now, so here's a couple of photos of the 'family group'.

I shall probably give the tank and front mudguard a blow over, VW Mars Red looks like a fair match.

Beautiful,
who's going to ride the other two while you're on the 2C?

Good question Julian. The answer, at the moment, is that nobody is riding anything at the moment. If I venture out I have to take a certificate of justification with me to explain why I'm out, at risk of a fine if I don't have one. Add that to the fact that I am 'at risk' with a compromised immune system, so not going out anyway. They could all be highly polished by the time this is over - or covered in cobwebs! :lol:
