I have been offered this for £110 as a field bike, starts and run. What do you think?

Field bike 125.jpg

I would run away, as fast as the local gravitational conditions would allow.

Gilera DNA 125 is the closest thing I can think of, but they are getting on a wee bit now.ad1709e13257cb2e077c66dbb5b05f50.jpg

I had the 200cc version as a commuter bike a few years ago. It wasn’t a bad old thing but having only ever ridden ‘normal bikes’ I struggled with brake layout a bit.

I'd forgotten about DNAs they looked the dogs danglies to a me as a teenager. 

I guess the idea died at the same time as 'sports' mopeds did with the demise of 2t 125s. (I was under the impression most of them with 180 engines were in things with a v5 saying 125)

Definitely still would as a fun second bike for nipping about. Possibly not at the prices they are currently at, and fuck knows where you'd get plastics for something ridden and crashed exclusively by spotty oiks when they were new.

Luggage racks and boxes fitted, extra sockets,sat nav bar,intercoms and scottoiler sorted out,. Ferry's booked for September and I'm excited already- been 6 years since "doing the continent" on two wheels.

I bloody love this wee bike- it's totally given me my Mojo back and I'm throwing it around like a 'crosser, even in the streaming rain. I'm out at every opportunity,whatever the weather. Glen Lyon today.

Just got this message..

 

Hi I hope you don't mind me contacting you I spotted your listing and instantly recognized your bike as one of our demo bikes from Coburn And Hughes who were the importers at the time. The photo shows the bike with its sister bike at the docks somewhere after the bosses had a blast across Europe, extra little bit of history for whoever's buys it. Good luck with the sale.
Kind regards Stuart

Of course it has "issues".
Needs a clutch. How hard can that be... 07292abbecb6d170c9a8a0e50caf4843.jpg

Hi guys as promised a few pics of my Jawa 350 TS 638 that's up for sale, it has a new battery fitted and has just been recommissioned after a 10 year lay up. Engine was rebuilt in 2006 along with some other repairs at a cost of over £1400. Speedo was replaced in 2004 and zeroed. She has done very few miles, due bereavement, although she was regularly MOT'd and placed on sorn. New MOT that expires 20.06.2020 , please remember she is  30 years old. Lots of old bills and paperwork. Selling as I have a lot of other JAWAS and CZ's that need my attention and I can't ride em all. Looking for around £975 and open to sensible offers. Cheers for looking, ooh nearly forgot may be able to deliver as long as it's not outer mongolia , just cover my fuel.

2k is also sold in rattle cans such as this HB BodyPro < here >  @ £19.25 / ltr.  Other brands specifically claim petrol resistant like ProXL < here >  @£60 / ltr.  

Would the lesser expensive one not work better than the 'petrol resistant' single pack paints from the likes of Halfords ? ?

Regarding drying / hardening the paint..  I'm quite happy for the fuel tank, once painted black and then lacquered, to sit inside my dark coloured Chrysler van, parked in the sun for a week or two. What's that 25 deg C for 5 hours a day, cycling cool overnight.. for let's say 10 - 12 days. 

EDIT.   It seems as if  " 2k "  is a misnomer with some manufacturers (such as HB BodyPro)  who are using it for air drying single pack paints. !

Thanks to Jazoli  for your advice..

Up to 1k miles on the RE Interceptor on Sun, still loving it. This guy puts why a lot more eloquently than I could.

Riding up to Cooperb Morcycles in Wellingborough tomorrow to get some bits for my Himalayan. 

Going to take a 650 out for a test ride. I do hope I don't like it!!
