At first, when I saw 'Moto Retro', I imagined a bunch of the dreaded hipsters infesting St Cergue but it looks like Freddie Spencer in the line-up :).
All after my ten years in St Cergue but I hope to get back one day and ski the 'Corps de Guard' La Barillette and La Dole.
Used to live up the hill behind the Agip service station which was owned by Freddie Blum from Arzier but that was over fifty years ago.

This is more a bunch of old motorcycle men like us...

You remember the area well! Fine skiing in La Dôle with my daugther, yes!

Don't know the owner of the service station, but will shoot a photo next time I'll drive by!

Changed the gear return spring on the Mirage, adjusted the eccentric cam as it was out and the change is much better now. Seems like the ‘slop’ left in the gearchange is from wear on the arm from the rose joint on the cross over linkage to the shaft. Job for this week before another quick check over and up to Bromyard speed festival on Sunday. A quick read of previous posts on here helped with setting up the gear change so cheers lads 👍.

I rode it (yesterday) for about an hour out in the country. On the way out I spotted a car enthusiast type show going on up the road. I stopped an had a look around on the way back. I only spotted one old bike, a Triumph.

Similar thing took Miss Prissey out with the Classic club quite a few old BM's but also an old mate I hadn't seen for 20 years or more on his 1976 900 SS Ducati as it was when he bought it, great riding although the 90 KM/H was hard to take 4th gear back to 3rd gear then back to 4th might have been OK for the BMs but no good for a 77 Jota and a 900SS!!!

Took the '71 SF out for a proper shakedown run after the engine rebuild and few niggles got sorted.
You just don't want to get off the bike ;D

Hi Gerald. looking at your exhaust header pipes.... Is there a running temperature mismatch? Maybe the LH is cleaned, or new.

Bloody lovely bike.

Hello Paul,

The bike came to me with the right header pipe being discolored.
I'm still in the process to get the cabs and Kleiber ignition sorted out, then fit a set of headers with crossover tube.
