I know one that was free
a good few years ago now a German Journo was in contact with me and picking my brains and scrap books for miniscooter stuff,brochures, parts lists, history etc, which I hapilly supplied, this lasted several months, during this period he moved into a new rented flat with a garage in a nearby block, he was not allowed into the locked garage for several weeks since the landlord had said that the former tenants were storing items inside it until a set date, some weeks after the pre set date the journo pestered the landlord for the garage and he eventually said, "OK force the door open and chuck all the stuff out, inside, there were two bikes, one of them a 5000 series drum braker, on slicks , a bit dirty and looking like it had been parked there for many years, straight after its last race, the journo checked with the landlord, should he chuck ALL the stuff, including the two old motor cycles? yes he said.
I was offered that bike for little money, but I declined because I recognised the serial number and I knew who owned it, so, I just thought its a fake or a total bullshit story, and declined, later on, I heard that it was genuine bike and had had its genuine chassis number erased and changed to that of the non matching (but genuine) engine, so genuine all right,through and through, with the original number later rediscovered I believe.
My memory is probably being viewed through rose tinted specs, but I think I got that right,
so a free SFC !
