    No after because it's a work in progress.

    It's good fun, bit gutless off pipe, but once it's on the boil it hauls arse fairly well for an old bike with a 6'4/260lb tub'o'lard on it :D

    '74 Benelli Enduro. All stock and unmolested. Thinking of selling. Heart says no, brain says no too, but my current garage situation says yes.

    My XR250. I really miss that bike... Seems to be a common denominator amongst the comments here.

    Thought I had the gaudy colors trophy in my garage, but that purple Yamaha on the left gives some stiff competition!

    This is my old enduro, well not mine but my father's '75 Montesa Enduro 250. He bought it new, sold it and recovered 30 years later :clap

    This had lights on it when I got it. They need a little polish.

    My friend has the "Scrambler" edition of that Ducati. Same year and as far as I can see the same motor and maybe the wheels. Just talked to him about that yesterday, sure they were all yellow. His sat in boxes for a long time before he restored it and then he had to take the engine apart again. Should be back together this winter.

    Does my 05 xt225 count as a 80s enduro?

    The Desmo motor in the RT is bevel gear driven with no valve springs. Not many survived due to the demand for the motor in road bikes. This is only the second one I have ever seen. They say only 300 were built and just for one year. It sounds fantastic.
