General Comments:

I would love to get my T80 back going right again. I bought off a old man for 200 euro. It started first kick and drove well. It was burning oil but I didn't think much of it.

After a few spins it started to go badly; it was drawing air and burning a lot of oil. Went to my local suppliers to get parts and they couldn't find any of the parts for me.

Is there any good suppliers in southern Ireland who will get what I need to get my T80 back on the road again? Can't wait to see what it's really like on the road.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
