I'd have another if I could find one
Engine to frame bolt sheared at 80mph when cornering.
Back tyre blow at 80mph (flint stuck in tread). (Not a mechanical fault, just very exciting).
Main fuse blew (lights went out) at high speed on winding country road (heart stopping).
Wheel rims were chromed steel. Chrome flakes punctured inner tubes until I epoxyed the inside of the rims.
An easy machine to ride at any speed either in town or on the open road.
Quick (in its day) and very reliable.
Indestructible engine, although the frame snaked a bit at very high speeds when cornering.
60 in first, 90 in second and 110 in third, but I bottled out at 124, London to Portsmouth in 50 minutes.
Tyres, chains and sprockets lasted up to 8000 miles if you didn't wind the throttle open too hard.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
