    Well...moving it on to someone who appreciates OIF, Conical hubs, breadbox tanks and regular engine rebuilds.
    Its good to play with these things from time to time to remind yourself why the British bike industry went down the gurgler.
    Mrs Headroom seems to be attached to Rusty the Beamer.:rofl

    Opps what I meant to say was:

    The Bonneville was the high water mark of the British bike industry with its lusty twin sound and taut handling that the Japanese only (super) dreamed of.
    ...has the cheque cleared yet?
