Last week I had a phone call from my old man asking to come and have a look at something.

It's something I have never had a interest in or been bothered about. It's well before my time but my old man had one as a young un.

The fella who owned it was a top bloke who had this in his garden.

He was selling up to fund getting the mini back on the road properly.

What we was looking at was in ace nick. My old man was a bit undecided as it was fair old few quid.

In the week I read up a fair bit about them and fancied some summer fun, so sent him a text.

"Fancy going halfs?"

"Yeah"

This morning a van was borrowed from work and it got loaded up.

Room was made in the garage. It ain't insured yet so only rode it up the street. Plus it was pissing it down in Derby today.

He gave us a old piss pot helmet which seems appropriate.

It's a 1965 li 125. Seems good to my limited knowledge.

Was restored a few years back.

Came with loads of old paperwork, I know it was built in Italy as apposed to Spain or India or whoever they knocked them up. Has matching numbers and what not.

I have already took some tat off it. But I literally only know what I have read up this week.

So tell me how to look after it. What I need to bin or add immediately. Or what looks daft on it.

So anyone wanna sell me a Parker?

Oh, you absolute f*ck*r (in a nice way) that's class. That colour is fabulous, probably the nicest one. PLEASE raffle it or get really pissed one night and agree to swap it for a 2006 Ford Ka.

Another thing, and it's not nice to say, sorry: keep it VERY well locked up, out of site and as secure as possible. These are a massive target for light fingered bastards, you hear of some many people who've had them stolen and never see them again.

That looks brilliant - I love the colour and that not one but BOTH tax discs are 'colour keyed' as Ford would say. One of my neighbours has one of these, and a Moto Guzzi which he uses as his daily.

Has it been re registered or imported as my old Panhard was AHJ394C which was allocated when I imported it.

Nice bike by the way I will have to buy one sooner or later as I always wanted one when I was 16 to go with my parker. I ended up with an NSU Quickly which wasn't quite the same

Ill take a picture of the scene where you can see him and pop it up, he loved his scooters and only gave them up when he saw a good mate of his get killed when she was a pillion passenger and the rider (her boyfriend) was being a penis

Y'know... that story is sooo much more interesting than telling us he was up a ladder [doinn sparkies] and a mate looked up and said "Nice beaver!"
