    What does "recommisioning" mean in Scotland? Pretty sure it doesn't mean "restore" because that bike's already gorgeous.

    Thanks for the compliment JBS.

    I like this little odometer-looking manual/analog number reminder. You just set it to the number you want to remember, mileage, etc.

    Excellent. I see you have the non oil pump model. I've just taken delivery today of a clutch side cover like yours as I intend to run premix on my ETZ250. It was quite hard to find.

    No, nothing exotic about the watch, it's a 150 cc MZ.
    My wife lives in former East Germany, so I get lots of MZ action when I go there to visit :)

    My Black Supa 5 on a summer evening run and my red winter bike during a journey to the in-laws on a wild Christmas night.

    this ts250/1 regularly collects miles which does indeed leave a mark ... as in rust and wear and bits falling off ...

    have fun!
