Very nice.

Oy kill joy, no way, now if it was a thruxton 500 maybe, but this is a sweet
350 MAC made in 1960, a sexy little minx, i might get her tuned so she can nudge the ton, but will not tax her to much

Very nice, Woolie, but a dumb design. I think you'll find that it will go much faster and farther if you put the back wheel on the ground.

The penny has just droped, you and brewy are jealous after all that
thing brewy drives is just a bike with two extra wheels
there is no experiance better than having a big single throbing between
your thights

That's a nice bike. But it does not look comfortable to ride! So short! And the handle bars, so low!

I almost bought a lovely old BSA 350 off my boss a few years ago. Not quite a nice as this, and I really would probably be dead twice by now. Once cos it's a motorbike, and twice because it had drum brakes.

Enjoy it Wooly!

Well at least you like the looks of this magnificant beasty, wind resistance
is the reason why bikes have low handle bars, a few mph more is all ways better, when i could not afford a top of the range bike i had a bsa c15 250
that i tuned, i fitted clip on handle bars and rear sets, in this configeration
it would keep up with a 650 triumph upto 60 mph and just nudge the ton,
the magic number in the 60s, i often wonder if she is still around ,she did
survive two trips through hedges.

Oh boy have you never had a hard ride ? with a bike one adjusts the stering
damper to max, and adjusts the the rear end to the road, these adjustments
can add several mph
