What to Expect

Weird style now passes as retro, engine so constipated that it’s impossible to thrash, hence still some bikes on the road. Chassis was always naff but doesn’t get much worse with age and rots very slowly. Some examples have minor ignition problems that are easily sorted (weak condensor, points burnt out, duff coil, etc). Sign of demise’s grinding vibration and ruined gearbox after 50,000 miles.
