Is that an S90? I had one many years ago - paid a fiver for it as the clutch wouldn't disengage. Front wheel against a wall, first gear and a hefty swing on the kickstart fixed that.

I did look a bit daft on it however even in those much slimmer days.

Hi Rufus

That is lovely. I feel a Moto Giro D'Dumfries coming on! Any bike but special awards for sub-250 and sub-125. Plenty of incredible roads up in your part of the country. I love tiddlers way more than the big behemoths some people insist on riding these days.

I clapped eyes on an s90 with fairing and reverse cone mega in 1974, parked outside Dowsons in Scarborough, wanted one ever since but never really needed or could justify one. I enquired on c90 forum if there was one for sale and managed to buy this one, having sold my Negrini 50, it`s much faster than the Negrini and looks smashing
