cheers Mocker..
riding that does turn some heads...
at the IOW rally I screeched to a halt at a pedestrian crossing at the ferry port..
two guys who work there walked across,
one said to the other " bloody mods"...

theres no escape from being called a mod

don't know about the dragster Bitsa...
this is a formula 125 with the same type steering..

can't get used to the weird handling, so I take it easy on corners..

went from Oxford to buillith Wells on it ( however you spell it) so it can go round corners...might just be me..

lovely twin cylinder engine though..very smooth...

I see what you mean about wheelbarrow handles

frame , engine and front end are all Italjet Formula 125..

every non essential bracket ground off, table legs for front crashbars, light brackets from a roof rack..

onto that I welded my old px cutdown frame...

really quite simple modifications...but it makes for a pretty weird looking thing...

I can imagine, not sure on the pink, but you can't go wrong with an Union Jack helmet. Top bike though.
