I will see how things go with this F1,I had a K6 bought used many years ago and I liked it enough to yearn for another.I have issues bending my knees/getting comfy on a bike these days so be interesting how it feels,I sold a Jota and a Suzy Kettle both mint condition as I couldn’t ride them but knee surgery hopefully will have remedied the problem.

I will also be looking for a 750 (hopefully K7) to restore soon, had one from new and loved it, eventually sold it after 10 years but now I'm at an age I want to get another one and restore it if necessary. D&K seem ok but its a long way from Aberdeen so will have to plan it !!
This was mine when it was a couple of years old, we were on our way to our first European trip (Switzerland and back) and it was a fantastic holiday and memories, plus Deriboots !!

I stopped wearing Derri Boots after sliding off my bike at low speed rubbing my foot along on ground the heat generated caused a nasty burn on my heel

We all wore Derri boots when I was at Uni.

They were waterproof!

One of my mates painted his so they looked like racing boots.

Derriboots...what the rich guys wore instead of wellies :)

My dad swore by them for wet weather wear....but by the time I started riding...they were old fashioned. The trend was for Frank Thomas buckle-boots....that leaked like a sieve in rain...so you stuffed your feet in a carrier bag to keep your socks dry.

Mind you...that was ruined when they started putting holes in them to stop people suffocating themselves.

I like my 1500 quid butt ugly k8. It's comfier than my settee.

What's not to like...  they are the ultimate evolution of Honda's SOHC 750.. and you can easily change the original "sensible" looks with a new seat and exhaust system.

Look at this beauty!

"One mans meat" so to speak, this is the last type of bike i would use.

The K8 in the attachment is beautiful but much more than a paint job and aftermarket exhaust. Look at the rest of the bike and the machinery in the background. It shows serious intent and ability.
