Not really a purchase... Moms husband dropped off his 2600 mile Yamaha R5 (that the prick snagged for $300 ;) ) so I could pull the motor and get it safe to run again after sitting for a decade or so. In exchange I get this running and riding Honda Express. Has new tires/tubes, cables, etc... Need to hit up VT for a title and she'll be ready for runs to the beer store come spring.

Like a river that don't know where it's flowin'
I took a wrong turn and just kept goin'

Very cool.  I would love to have a pair of those Express'es.

Nice!

I was the kid with the wrong seat and leaky tank on his Z50. I didn't care about the seat and we used JB weld to fix the tank.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.

Found a bit of a bargain (I hope)
Iíve been looking for CB175 parts to convert the top end of my CD to the twin carb set up and the lofty jump from 15 to 20hp...

Found a CB and 2 CD engines (one torn down) for 50quid!
