Well soon anyway.
I see you've found a way to start spending that new raise!
That is a very beautiful machine
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 :rofl: after all that
thing brewy drives is just a bike with two extra wheels :tongue2:
there is no experiance better than having a big single throbing between
your thights :!!)
I would have expected that last line from Moonbear, but you...?
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.
I would call you a philistine if i knew how to spell it, can you not at least
say this bike is an engineering wonder?
Arooga Arooga. :rofl:
Your bike is the upgraded version of above. or is it??? LOL! Your bike is going to be slow, I dont think a lower profile is going to help.
that is a bmw, you guys have no heart, velocette was the
first bike manufacturer to do a ton for 24 hrs none stop.
Since when has that stopped you? :tongue:
Never claimed otherwise, old bean. By the by, what's with the adjustable shock angle?
I thought you meant "bike."
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 :!!)
A big single? Did you consider a Manx Norton? That's the scariest single I've ever swung a leg over. My current ride is an '05 Softail EFI with a Power Commander (tunable computer control) and exhaust upgrade.
Yeah, we suspected our attempts to mate a mountain bike with a lawnmower were going to run into technical difficulties, but we never anticipated quite the outcome we got! :surprised
Woolie, enjoy your new ride...just be sure to wear your helmet.
Get yourself a true bike lad!
I'd be riding around town in that if it not for the fact that my father would sell it and smack me in the head. :yuck:
Actually, I have an "old school" bike too. Its a Raleigh, 1978 Competition GS. All Campy components! All origional, every last spoke! MINT condition. It was a steal, only 600!
(Not my bike, but it's exactly the same)
I am impressed. I've had a 1983 Gios Compact frame in my basement for 10 years. I've been meaning to get an early 80s C-Record gruppo to finish it off, but...It needs new paint first, and a retro fork, and...
My friend has a collection of classic bikes, I can find pics of some. A lot of old pugeots and Raleighs. All mint.
