    Ok I’m after some new textile trouser but don’t really want to be spending hundreds on them. They must be waterproof/breathable and have removable/washable liner. At present I have some tatty AKITO Python that have broken zips and dead Velcro but I only use then to put over work trousers to...
  8. Do you wanna tinker with my twin?

    Africa Twin
    My 1991 twin is in need or a strip and spruce up. I can't afford workshop rates and I don't have the space to have a go myself but if there is anyone out there that feels comfortable in stripping and fixing up an otherwise healthy but tatty looking twin I'd love to hear from you.

  13. Winter overhaul

    Africa Twin
    Okay, my next 'project' might be to tidy up my slightly shabby-looking 3 year-old AT. I plan to clear out the garage and dismantle the bike in a minor way, then clean it up and put it back together in something resembling 'as-new' condition. I have NO mechanical experience or aptitude, and I...

    OK, so I've purchased and fallen in love with my tatty RD04. Of course my intentions were to use it as a hack, intending not to spend too much on it.
