  • I'd like to write something here: SOMETHING
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

Hydro clutch needs to go... otherwise looks stunning and fairly priced for the level of restoration.

How can it be concourse, or even concours when it has the wrong grabrail, sidepanels, shocks, m/cs AND hydraulic clutch. And the brake hoses are wrong and wrongly routed.
Don't get me wrong, it looks tidy, or maybe my understanding of concours is wrong.
For that money it had better have had a full professional engine restoration and not just lots of shiny shiny added.

I like it as it looks identical to my 1981 Jota which had the same clutch, centre  stand, engine plates , grab rail.
It was advertised for a grand less originally.

I don't think concours necessarily means original. All sorts of modified bikes and cars appear in concours displays.

My 76, silver with silver centrestand. Why the f would they fit a black centrestand on a silver frame? Lazy sods.
