    Hey Jonno,

    My baby looks very much like this without the stickers. I do like a V-twin, sounds lovely and looks so pretty. (Shame about the Superdream type bodywork styling but meh...)



    Honda VT500


    It is my 230 quid ebay bargain, runs a treat now and sailed through its MOT. Just needed new forks (50 quid) and the carbs cleaning (carbs on, carbs off, carbs on, carbs off.........about 5 times!)

    The idea being that I get back into biking (10 year break) and then get something better.

    Oh thats right, the early shadow
    And hey! there's nothing wrong with superdreams, I had teh 400

    50 for forks = bargain, cost me 30 just for the seals as for carbs, well taking them off and putting them on with vtwins is a nightmare so rather you than me

    So once you back into the swing of things what you thinking about getting?

    The 400 was always better than the 250...but the Dream was better than all of em imo.

    The forks were a bargain, but from a breakers and not brilliant, had to respray em to make em look arf decent. I am now officially a dab hand at cleaning carbs, definately a 2 handed job getting em back on though...bloody offset so worse than normal.

    I was originally thinking of a Guzzi V50 or even le mans Mk1 but I keep seeing an imaculate old Kwack Z750 near me and I find myself drawn.....As you can tell I like me classic old 1980's road bikes.

    Having said that, quite like the Ducati Monsters, and my mate has a Suzuki SV650S which is nice too. Bandits are ok but I have noticed that the ones I like most are the big naked 1100's. I think they might be a bit big for me....Oh and I like the retro Triumphs....the Thruxton is beautiful. Have you seen the Rocket 3???? Oh my god! A car engine in a bike! Stunning though.

    I guess I will have to see what comes up cheap on Ebay. as this doing up the bike thing was such fun....love the smell of engine oil.

    Never!! my 400 1984, 27k just been done up by a mate, like you say, basically looks like yours lol but, now if you'd said 400/4....

    Yeah I know, only done mine once, never again. Got right snotty with it
    Getting them out isn't too bad on mine, but dropping them back in?...anyone here with 8 pairs of hands?

    Yeah retros are cool, not much of a triumph fan meself and wouldn't go bandit under 1100.
    If you really wanna road monster then get a V-Max
    I soooooooo nearly bought one of them cheap but had probs with cam and possibly crank probs, I just saw pound signs falling from my pockets


    I want one
