Thanks Merv looks like she is deceased after only 11 years on the road, thrashed to within an inch of her life, holed piston, fixed at Vin Duckets at Cleveleys near Blackpool, crashed at Hawthornes at Brands Hatch (going in opposite direction) to what they do now, as it was the day after the Hutchinson 100....every day was race day for me.......its a wonder she lasted 11 years......I owned it for about two short years before getting my next bike........happy happy days.........

I think my 76 B and 78 D both only made 85 . Was hopeful that the current D I have had been off the road since 85 was my old one when I went to look at it but it was a 77 R reg. Still bought it though £50 was to cheap to turn down. Probably would be worth over a grand now if I had just plastered it in oil and shoved it in the back of the shed at the time instead of restoring it

That's a good angle of lean  :o

It's a wonder that any of the RDs survived giving the treatment they received from the teenagers of the seventies and early eighties

Hi Motty thanks even though I was showing off just a bit.......no sparks from the under carriage so just slightly dissappointing..........I agree about how the bikes are lucky to have survived.......I used to thrash mine but I cant bring myself to do the same now...just happy to keep it burbling along to the Ace Cafe for as long as I can in the future.........my aim now is longevity and to keep the two strokes on the road.......

My attitude is exactly the same. Nothing to do with my reactions being (much) slower and now wanting to live long enough of claim my pension  :D  :D

Do keep an occasional eye on the DVLA website, your bike may resurface at some point in the future

When I was at uni, I was able to obtain the current keepers details from the DVLA of an abandoned CX500 by writing to them with an officially headed letter asking for the details, acting upon authority of the uni security (the property owners) explaining that the bike appeared 'dumped' on private property and enclosed the letter with a details request form and the payment. About a week later I got the details back and bought the CX.
Worth a chance even if you have to bend the truth a bit.  ;)
