On The Road Again...


Job done then. I really must get some fresh brake shoes! We'll certainly need some before MOT time. Preliminary road tests complete and we're tidying up the 'shop with a view to making a serious start on the next project. MORE STOPPING POWER !

NEAT! I think the lightweight twin scrambler should make a comeback...I fondly remember Tiger 90 engines in Greeves frames! Can you take a photo from the other side? Is the exhaust hi-level like a CL model?

Never mind about Greeves frames and Tigers, I thought you were going to do something about that seat upholstery. Or have you decided that mauve is this season's colour? Well done though, it looks magnificent.

I love the minimalist approach. Reminds me of my old Bantan 125 back in the 15th Century; frame, engine/gearbox unit, wheels and a brake. Perfect for thrashing around the fields and learing how to fall off gracefully.

As the sponsor of the other bike on the back of the pickup on that fateful December day, I must concede that you have beaten me to it. The BSA A50 is a pickup coil check away from challenging the CB200 to a drag race – and losing.

Good man! Minimalist we like. Front mudguards and working brakes are for sissies
