Old YR5 bought for spares 1979

(1/1)

Because I was having a few problems with my YR5 back in the late 70s, Tony Brown of George Brown Motorcycles in Stevenage offered me an old YR5 he had rusting away in his back garden for a nominal sum (I don't think it was anything more than £50).
I did a bottom end swap (the crank seals had gone and selector forks bent on my bike) and then sold the bike on as needing attention.
This is what it looked like when I sold it.

Well, this one's still on the DVLA database, but looks like no change of ownership since you(?) sold it in 1980.

Really? I thought I had checked that but couldn't find it.
Yes, it would have been about 1980 when I sold it so could still be with the same person - whoever that was! Last seen in the Stevenage/North Hertfordshire area.
