Well spotted Phil. He built that up from odds and ends in he's shed. The VW badge he just stuck on. I think the engine came from a small twist and go scooter. I like the chain drive from the front wheel to the dynmo which feed the lights. He zoomed off before I could get any more info.

Been a while so time for some more pictures.

Image

Found a nice bike for sale?

Image

But it was already sold!!! Pity I think the bank would not give me that much money. A nice 1939 SS80 and it's all there.

Image

BMW with rubbed paint on the tank.

Image

This one was nice.

Image

You don't need a big engine to be different.

Just to finish off.

Included a picture to keep on track. It's called the hot look! 40 degrees in Portugal.

Anyway, reason for posting is in line with Ian. Back in the day I bought a Honda CB750 F2. A PO had fitted an aftermarket electronic ignition in place of the points.
Occasionally when hot it would cut out and start a few seconds later.
One day waiting at a roundabout on the A27 I saw a gap, opened up, moved forward 2 to 3 yards and... bluhhh.
The man in the van who had to brake hard gesticulated in an upset manner!....... I got home ripped out the blooming thing and refitted the points whilst waiting for my underpants to be washed.
