My XLV750R. AKA "Chuffa" because of the noises it made first time I persuaded it to run.



Bought this one as a parts bike for another XLV that had come out of a garden in Pollockshields. This one was a barn find in Oxfordshire & fired up when given fresh petrol & a battery so t'other one became the parts bike.

Really must find time to sort it out & get it back on the road but my Laverda seems to be absorbing all my spare time and cash.

I bought this bike around 1985 and rode it every year. I sold it a few months ago. What a great bike!

I love old Hondas!

Sometime this year I'll finish rebuilding my engine, then my old Honda will again be my

sport-tourer
commuter
adventure bike
grocery-getter
Sunday rider
2-up tourer
sporty pleasure rider
sight seeing steed

etc.

Here's a picture of the adventure rider persuasion:

Velorex sidecar.

Which model is that sidecar? Did you have to mod the sidecar to mount it, or was it pretty straightforward to install?
