I wouldn't be too worried - they looked fantastic in the whole, with an authentic 60's aura about them; in particular the engine cases casting and finish looked very 'old fashioned' (in a good way).

I was just a little disappointed about the detailing. As mentioned the two halves of the indicators didn't quite line up, the switch gear felt a little gritty and some of the welds were a tadge 'bulky'. But they are considerably 'less expensive' than a Japanese bike and so I may be a little over picky.

To whet your appetite..

And for the curious, here's the Bennelli Imperiale...

I do like Triumphs but the various Bonnie's just never quite looked right. The Interceptor however looks like bikes did when I was a kid.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

Just back from a wee run in the Vito down to Southport to collect this... A double Decker ZX9-R B4. Proper winter project as it doesn't run ( starter clutch gubbed) and has no brakes or clutch. A gamble?Probably, but can't resist a big Kwak. Should keep me occupied until spring.

Let's hope the gearbox and headgasket are good too, looks well except for the cheap ass danmoto can

Picked up the ZX10R earlier. It's so small and light - easiest bike ive ever put onto my trailer. Took it for a quick spin on the lane by my house, nearly dropped it as the clutch is typically sharp [modern 1000cc bikes all seem to be] and i got a load of spin up from the cold track-focused tyres. It doesnt even feel run in, still fresh as a daisy.

 

Had to clear space in the garage for it.

 

Will be on the road in the new year.cant wait.

I had a brand new black ZX6R in 2009. Had it 3 weeks and 350 miles, when a car turned across my path in Hereford and wrote it off. It's nice to be on another black ZX-series bike. They are classy, well-made [much better than Honda and Suzuki anyway] and have amazing ergos.

 

Should be a ton of fun.

All good so far, no broken bolts, no snapped studs and looks to have been well cared for. Next to split the crankcase.

My Dad has had his for over 40 years and has ridden it aprox 5 times as the last time he went out he found a corner coming up rather faster than he anticipated and it put him off.
I used to have it on my multi bike policy and I think I've done more miles on it than he ever did. I must admit for an old dinosaur it rides very nicely and the brakes work, highlights include coming back from the local bike meet and going round the outside of a bandit on the corner and toddling off into the distance whilst 2 up.

I liked mine but you have to be tallish. Mine was twin carb Rotax 5v single but I think later ones are Yam engined. Everything is in the right place and and it's relaxed riding longish distance on twisty country roads. and slim enough to filter through stationary traffic.   Rotax bit are available but I didn't need any.  It went on to UltraWomble so he'll probably chime in soon. I preferred it to my Yam XT600.

£300 including overnight delivery as it was 300km away
Most of the engine is in the topbox but it's fairly complete and scruffy
Edit...still a bracing -6°c so the snow is hanging around

ZX9 engine is in the kitchen, in bits. Bought knowing it didn't start with a suspected duff starter clutch.It turns out 2 tiny pins were sheared behind the clutch basket because the alternator chain has been walloping about. Part is NLA from Kawasaki, but shared with the ZXR750, so one on its way to me now. Splait the cases anyway as the chain also drives the oil pump, but all good and wearing its 52k well. Gearbox is perfect and no signs of head gasket issues. Didn't crack the clutch nut when the engine was still in the bike, and didn't have an impact gun, so had to improvise with some nuts and bolts, a couple of spanners, a breaker bar, a wife and some really bad language.
