  1. Had one in the late seventies, I used to buy 10 "crossply remoulds for £2.50 a piece and wear them out in a fortnight ragging it round the local roundabouts...........
  2. Sorry bud I meant to but just not clever enough!

  4. Yes and Blue mink did the same....
  5. Eerm yes, sorry to say that it was grade one shite, bad earths everywhere, water everywhere, put me off fibreglass cars for ever ,the only good thing about it was the XR2 engine, sold the car after 2 weeks of misery. Although I imagine that they were pretty quick if they had the nissan turbo engine fitted?
  6. That hasn't strayed far from home, Bournemouth reg and still in Christchurch...............
  7. My god I had forgotten about that episode, I know the feeling of being a senior citizen and dropping a few bikes along the way, the worst was my lovely few months old Suzuki GT 250 RAMAIR in 1974 I had to hide the damaged bike from my mum till I got it fixed, because my mum had signed the HP agreement as I wasn't old enough . She would have had a fit if she had seen it !Ask your grandad about HP (hire purchase) and flairs and loon pants and Elton John moon boots ha ha ha.
  8. Managed to get the assembled beastie out into the sunshine today, haven't cleaned it, just got it starting and running, for the first time in 40 years, sadly I will probably move it on as I have others that need my urgent attention.... next up should be a 250 twin that's been hiding in my garage for the last couple of years.
  9. Great little bikes widely used by the plod in my neck of the woods.
  10. That's a shame, they are probably the most sought after model, aside from the 175 Trail. Apparently they did a 350 custom, but I have never seen one.
  11. One of my favourites too and not only that but I have one in that very colour, its a very coarse silver metal flake , it def does not wheelie like the pic though. I will try and dig out a pic.
  12. Very nice bikes I have a 2014 reg new retro model, with oil pump injection , electric start and disc brake wohooo.......I will try and get a pic, meantime here's one I sold recently
  13. I thought thats how everyone cleaned their baffles......I have a couple of 250 twins, they make a lovely sound, did you know that CZ fitted restrictors inside the air box on 175 singles as they were reputedly quicker than the more expensive 250 twins, removing it requires splitting the airbox which is easy as it's cast in two halves and bolted together........oh god I sound like a right anorak. Cool pic .
  14. Yes they still turn up, most will have 4 km on the clock as that was the length of the assembled test ride, saw one for sale the other day still in it's delivery crate ! Many came to the uk long after the factory closed as they mostly sat in containers all over europe after Cagiva , who by then owned CZ gave up on them, you will find some later models with Cagiva vin plates and engines stamped the same.
  15. Yes you def right about prices I used get given CZ bikes or evenpaid to take them away, but I have been amazed by the interest shown in some the bikes that I sold recently, I think that most people don't have deep enough pockets for the Japanese stuff anymore and although the eastern bloc stuff is not in the same league it's an affordable way to get that nice two stroke noise and smell.
