  1. It's on the GF's policy but I have a rider multi bike policy as well, which allows me to ride it. The PDI from CBRuS must be non-existent.... Found loose engine mount bolts today, the front end wasn't tightened up properly either. It's a smooth enough little thing, once it's on the boil.
  2. Well I'm pleased to report that the Nanfang is definitely not restricted by any stretch of the imagination. It will pull an indicated 45MPH on the flat and has shown 55MPH down a slight gradient without much effort. The only complaints were slight bogging at lower revs and some minor carburation issues. I tried fiddling about with raising and lowering the needle and adjusting the fuel/air mixture. Changing the tappet clearances made the biggest difference but the bogging remained. Ended up getting another carb for £8.99 which didn't really make any difference. While shopping for a spare carb, came across a CRF 70cc piston, barrel and head kit with all the required gaskets for £35.99. Just fitted that today and I'm pleased to note that there's a roughly 10MPH improvement on the flat and much better torque going up hills. The 70cc kit appears to have cured the bogging as well.... Next stage will be to source a 110/125 engine in the future but for now, it's perfectly adequate.

    That looks very decent for the money!

    Those Scoupe's rusted like hell up this way. Knew a lass with a white one which was mainly brown rust up to the windows .... Was the turbo charged one as well. I had the 1.5L Pony GLS at the time

    I would never buy a car or vehicle unseen after that fiasco. It took an awful lot of resolve not to resort to "alternative" methods of redress, if I'm honest. Lost £50 and a tank of fuel selling it to a pal that was looking for a car, I was more pissed off that I'd been "mugged" really. I did think eBay or PayPal would get it sorted out but they didn't cover cars etc under a certain category of advert or suchlike. It was actually a very decent low mileage example but not close to the immaculate and pristine condition car that was advertised....all water under the bridge now of course.

    Spot the difference...

    Yeah those were the obvious differences between the advertised car and the purchased car. There were a number of other photos. I was gutted, as the advert used different images of a truly immaculate car.

    The interiors were vastly improved on the facelift but did find the exterior of the MK1 better looking, from certain angles.

    3. 2003 2.7L V6 as a company car while working in Alberta. Fun car to drive but nothing special really. Liked my 1.6L SE to be honest, cost £650 with a couple of dents and replaced the front wing - see mismatched colour in first post. Would not say no to one of the last versions now but I'm more into MPG (read diesel) and cheap tax bands these days to be honest....

    2. Another 2001 in 2.0L size but this was a total and utter eBay fuck up, which taught me a lesson. Car advertised and car purchased were completely different. Thought I was covered by eBay and PayPal but not the case... Sold car to a mate and he put on about 100,000 miles onto it and eventually wrote it off in an accident...

    I've had 3 in total. 1. 1.6 SE 2001 model
  12. If I was to hazard a guess, I'd suspect this was somewhere around Tsim Sha Tsui on the Kowloon side of HK. My old '86 Suzuki GSX-R750 was registered in Hong Kong in 1990 and was ET3285, so the taxi (DW1610) might be later 80's?
  13. Jialing 50 anybody? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HONDA-SS50-RETRO-CLASSIC-JIALING-50CC-MOPED-MOTORBIKE-WITH-KEYS-AND-V5C/153443178836?hash=item23b9ed1954:g:2ZUAAOSwDKBcmPyL
  14. I see the seller of the Nanfang has reduced it by £50 now.
  15. I'm sure I was getting quotes that were double the price of my super cub. The cub usually insures for around £70 (TPF&T)
