Not too bad really, about an hour of T Cut should sort it.

Alternatively, give me 10 minutes with an angle grinder and I will turn into an abortion, also known as a 'Café racer'

Better still, cover it in horse**it and call it a RAT............. :lol:

Oh spare me etc

Ride safe

Are you saying that bike reminds you of your Mum? Let's hope she never goes on this forum or you're toast!

Seeing as thats a eurosport model it'd be worth spending money on it to get it up and going...best models !! :twisted: :twisted:

Happy birthday Richards Mum. Hope she's well and that you treated her as she undoubtedly deserves.

No debate Lance......how could anyone argue against anti-dive forks, mono-shock, rear disk brake and beautiful 1980's styling ??? I rest my case. QED.

I just like the styling and colours of the euros more than the other models - hence bought one - bought a 650 (custom) to get the 650cc experience which is more fun than a 500cc but dont like the custom/sit up on yer tailbone seating position......so will have to "alter" I think !!
