What a place! Some interesting old Japanese bikes there too-I'll take all the Yamaha twins if he has a clearout! :wink: And I wonder how the 500 ended up with a drum front brake? Another story of some mishap and a bush fix I suppose!
Is he selling anything?

He tends not to sell anything. He said he didnt like the mag wheels on the 500 so he chucked a Suzuki drum on it.

One of the wild things he did many years ago.
Take one Honda Goldwing, put sidecar on it. Replace engine with VW motor. Then gearbox with some sort of auto shift. Then eventually it ends up with a Leyland v8 auto shift driving both back wheels with tractor type tyres. Amazing in the dirt !
