Make room in the shed, of course. Why on earth would you want to sell the Scrambler or Sprint?

Well I don't want to sell either. But someone keeps trying to tell me I don't need three bikes. I still cannot understand what she means by that???

Tank shaped liked older Tigers?



Must be the adventure version, TKC or similar tires.




Nice orange. Spoke wheels. 21in wheel. I like the headlights

Thanks. That looks like the street version (alloy wheel, low fender). Everything else look similar to the photos on the video. And now I understand the side of the tank (if that is what it is).

Mista Vern,

You are wrong. I watched Kojack. It didn't leak oil or vibrate and was a thoroughly enjoyable television program. The only reason it went off the air was Telly Savalas wasn't suited to the hair care marketing of the 1970s. I would recommend Kojack to anybody.
