Ash -  Dunstalls on my CB175.

My mum always said she could hear me coming home from two valleys away!

I remember going to the bike show when the Z750 was launched.

You’ve got a 900/4 and a 650/4, why on earth would you make a 750 twin?

Not quite a modification, but my room-mate at uni bought a CB500T. Again, why?

... also, fitting a K3 seat and tank to my 500.

The mountings didn't line up and the rack meant I couldn't open the seat anyway!

I don't have a photo but I fitted Fiamm air horns in an attempt to make myself heard..

The compressor was fitted (bodged) onto the old horn mount - with associated exhaust heat and road spray...

The horns were mounted on the fairing brackets on the outside of the Rickman fairing (see avatar)

They were loud OK, but the delay between pressing the button, the compressor whirring into life and the noise coming out made it impossible to "beep" the horn. Only a sustained blast was possible.

And then the compressor faided due to being continually wet :(

Ask in the “Desperately Seeking” section John. If anyone has any or knows of any they will be along.

Welcome by the way!

If you are restoring one of these, start your own project thread. We need lots of pictures.

Hey Gareth.

My son in law has a Street Triple R. We swap sometimes.

I find the Street too small/fast/focused. I do like the TFT instruments though.

He says my Tiger 800 is slow and like an armchair “it’s got heated seats!” 

He rode my 500 round the block and was terrified that he’d crash it due to no brakes/handling/power.

It seems my old mate Axl (RIP) has written about it: Click

I’m sure someone will be able to fill us in on what a Rob North Honda was (is?) and why a project bike would be worth £15k.

Pictures please

Sorry mate. Can’t think why you didn’t get an answer in two weeks. We must be slipping.

Buck up you lot!

Frank’s prices are always nuts.

I don’t know if he ever sells anything.

Actually, I don’t think he owns the bikes that he has for sale anyway.

A mate of mine has a 73 UK Z1, one of only 7 known to survive of the 44 UK Z1's Kawasaki imported into the UK in 1973

So are they like the Brighton CB750s, or more like the Sandcasts?

What are the other bikes that fall into such a category?

Eamon really wanted me to buy an RRN FireBlade that a guy in Maidenhead was selling. It was good and a good price but I didn’t have the space. This was 10 years ago .

So what else will be astonishing the auctioneers in 30 years when we are all long gone and 70s bikes are treated like 40s bikes are now?

Of course, we’ll have young ‘uns like James to keep up the tradition

Beat me to it Bryan. I went to Moss Side once (by accident) as I was supposed to be visiting Siemens/GPT
