    The question has been raised here about build quality on the Montessa built models. I've recently been buying NOS parts for my fleet and they come in the original packaging. I have found that all chassis parts come in bags that say "made in Spain", but all engine parts come in bags that say...

  9. XR
    I've bought a few of these now and have been bringing them back to 'better than new' standard. They're such a rare bike here and such a bloody fantastic bike too. Why we never got them here is a mystery. They're still produced and sell well in USA, Aus and South Africa. Unchanged since 1993...
  10. Dominator / FMX
    One I knocked up earlier in the year. This was my own bike so kind of just played around with it making it how I liked myself. Not scared to crash it either. It came off roading with me a few times. I had a Hagon with stiffer springs so it handled quite well. I've done a couple of XR650L's...

    After many hours of surfing the net to find a seat for my project bike , I found one that I like but its a custom built seat from the US. The seat costs $225 dollars plus about $100 shipping and then Danish import tax and vat sticks about $125 on top of the bill. Do any of our members know of...

    A couple of pics (avoiding the bins) of my new Transalp beastie after this morning's thunderstorm. Shot around Colchester UK - Garrison Church, a victorian wooden colonial style building now owned by the Russian Orthodox Church. And at Bourne Mill built in 1591. Cleaned out the crappy...
