I just shed a tear! My first bike was one of those (red not yellow).

Suppose I had better add to the list

My 75 R90S
Just renewed the Red Plate rego 2 weeks ago, having let it lapse last year, no problems, no road worthy certificate required, just pay the $110, and she is back on the road


My 81 R100RT, currently on full rego ($560) but will be Red Plated next time it is due.



My 84 R80PDGS after I rebuilt it 5 years ago, not so pristine right now but will be ready for the OCR


And lastly Rommell, (still in pieces) a 81 R80GS with chair


Cheers

Not realising until now, I can also include my 85 K75GS

Whoo hoo!

Thats 5 bikes on Red Plates @ $110 per bike per annum, only leaving my 95 K1100 outfit on full rego.




Cheers

Hey Davo

You want memories

How about this


And one of my all time great photo's, and yes folks this is original, no photo shopping, I just happen to be in the right place at the right time.

Even Sally saw the funny side of it,

Star light Star bright



Enjoy

They call it Daytona Orange - but in this instance sunburst orange might be more appropriate

Silk was an engineering company that used to repair and refurbish scotts, i worked there in the 1970s, the machinery was old and there was not much room but they had some very enthusiastic people there, most of them very keen on motorbikes. George Silk and another great guy Maurice Patey developed the silk useing the deflector top piston idea from the scott, the frames were made by spondon engineering, makers of racing frames who are now involved with the new norton works at donnington. Most of the parts were made in house, the bike was very light weight and had very good handling, it could be rebuilt with the toolkit supplied,the fuel tank is alloy and all the fasteners were stainless,enclosed chain,decent lockheed brakes etc.they are very rare bikes i think only about 150 were made. They were very expensive,they had lots of other ideas and developed a single cylinder bike but nothing came of it and bike production ended.

One for all the XS11 fans. This bike is currently going round in the Forgotten Era class & Dave will build you one if you want.

Yes the history is documented. I did not know that about the tool kit and its powers. Only 150 - shame really. But what was it like working there? Dedicated craftsmen? You would have been a pup at the time. Why do you think it never took off - the 70's oil crisis? The influx of reliable Yam and Suzi twoies?
