102 - He phoned me back Friday but could tell me very little about them and tied to sell me an different bike. He was supposed to be sending me pictures and Saturday I got a text to say he would send them in the next few days. Monday I got a text to say it they were sold. I assumed the better man had got them and settled down to lick my wounds!

ZX - What sort of condition is it in? Logistically getting to you at a time of day the M25 would be guaranteed to be flowing is a problem. I am not desperately needing it but I have space to put it, I like ZXs and it seems such a waste just to bridge it. If I can come up with a plan I can always add it to my insurance while I am waiting to collect it. In the mean time if anybody else wants it I will gladly stand down.

 

Have a try for the 102s, I got a very short text today "6pm and a postcode" so took time off work and drove several hours to the postcode.  Got there and spent 30 minutes trying to find someone, phone just rung and rung also no reply to texts or bell push.  Nothing doing so I left and over an hour after the appointed time got a call "was i still in town?" well no I had buggered off and far enough away so CBA to go back.

Does the 5th gear make much of a difference?


No is the short answer.

The 5th gear is a lower ratio than 4th in the 4 speed box. Top in 4 speed is 22.4 mph per 1000/rev and top in the 5 speed box is 21.6 mph per 1000/rev. The 5 speed box improves performance, 0.3 sec from the 0-60 time and adds 2 mph to the top speed.The 5 speed is supposed to cost around 4 mpg.

In practice you can't feel the difference and just change gear more in the 5 speed car. Also while I have never driven the 4 and 5 speed cars back to back the feeling is there is no difference in fuel consumption.

The next obstacle in your 102s quest will be to get someone to open this gate/door made of crappy wood with bell push on it which, the front door of the house appears to be behind this.  Still don't know the bloke's name.

John is all we were given. It was an odd conversation I had with him last Saturday, he says he brings a few bikes over from France and tried to sell me a 1955 Peugeot, sensing this was going to be too expensive for a bit of fun I turned the conversation back to the 102s. The only thing he could tell me was they have rear suspension. Why did he know so little about them?

Yes I managed to say 102s in my text to the seller but got sloppy on here, sorry.

I know, but my only friend in the world who likes to get up early so I stand a chance of the M25 flowing has a lung infection and is grounded at the moment.
