Less than 1k from getting new tyres fitted I've had one puncture repaired in the rear already & today I found a two inch screw in the back tyre again...

 

 

...Somehow it'd gone in flat so it was just through the tread block in line with the carcass. Pulled it out & no leak! I was amazed.

Busas are great, they just look like they have been left near a radiator for too long :)

Nice, I was looking at these a couple of weeks ago whilst changing bikes, I very nearly bought one but then remembered why I sold my R1, lack of self control :D

 

I will buy one one day though, one of the few bikes of that era I have never ridden.


sigs are shit, wgaf?

I just bought a Ducati 900SS which should make its tyres last a bit longer than they do on my RC8. Never owned a Ducati before but so far all good - and far more comfortable to ride than the Harley Sportster I had.

Here's a phot of my Ducati. It's standard with no mods at all-apart from a Japanese rectifier and some badly applied gold paint to the engine cases (which will be blasted off soon). I'm off to the Festival Italia at Brands Hatch on it on Sunday, it's first real run on it for me.

The 750 is said by many to be a bit better than the 900 overall, but this one stood out. It's not immaculate, but then it's going to be ridden in all weather's.

Yes then, but I can't remember if they called them the Dulville? (can't recall the exact name) before or after NT700, probably before as I think the Dullville was 650.

 

From what I know, they are dull, reliable & like a baby Pan with less power. Loved by couriers I think as unkillabley Honda

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if it is broke just ignore it, and maybe it'll be sort of OK...?

That's a Deauville. Tough as old boots, and can run up six figure mileages if not totally neglected. If you're not a weekend thrill-seeker this is a very decent bike indeed.

If you decide you're not interested let me know! I'd have the seller's hand off at that price.

What was actually said by the bike engineer when i asked if he had any old motorbikes to make a bobber , was ..

( and he ain't a twat  )    

 

 " That's got to go... the owner left it standing outside ,it wouldn't start ,  he brought it here for me to get it running , I told him straight it would probably be a 600 quid bill, and  the bike isn't worth that . So he said sell it .  I'm putting it on ebay for him... it should make  150 quid , well,  i hope it makes 150 ,  as i told him  that's what  its worth.  "

Ah OK. Well, unless it's a complete shitter with bits missing etc., even as a non-runner I reckon he'll be pleasantly surprised with what it makes. Defo more than £150 I would say!

It wasn't in its first flush of youth ! Paint was dull , the seat vinyl was cracked where it folds up under the seat on the sides, front disc was ridged , wheels were shabby ..back tyre was worn out . scratches on the panniers . That didn't bother me all that would be removed , just the frames on these modern bikes are all bloody square tube ! And i want a shitter one with round tube !  Would a Cz 250  make a bobber ?Can you have a 2 stroke bobber? I know where there's one of those,  but it is well rough..

My mate was given a Yamaha 80cc, don't know what model ,( but the bloke who gave it to him said they fetch good money restored . )and he said i can have it . (he knows fuck all about motorbikes too! ) .. He said it looks like a motorbike ,rather than a honda 50 dugout , but i expect that's a 2 stroke too .  :-(

 

Even Steve McQueen wouldn't have been able get a 80cc bobber  over a 6ft wire fence  :-(
