Plenty to pick from e bay this week if you fancy a custom job . :D :D :D Is the trend passing us by , or has the crimbo credit card bill arrived? :D
I think it's more that these bikes were projects, and once the build is complete, the fun diminishes. :cry:

It's horrifically sad. The same is happening to CG125s.

Also that the various improvements have produced something impractical and maybe unsafe. ;)

But maybe there are positives to be taken. Could be that someone, having gone down this route, might realise the appeal of the standard bike and go for a restoration next using their acquired skills?

Dunno.

Probably not but I did some particularly nasty things to an LD125 in my youth making it unrideable. Learnt a lot in the process and have not reoffended since (much). :D

That Capri needs the rear jacking by 12" at least and the sunstrip with Wayne/Sharon! (Essex through and through here) :lol:

That's brought back a memory - My first wife was Christine - we had a Wolseley Hornet with a sunstrip "Chris/Chris". Not for long though. :lol:
