Don't recognize the bike but if I did do the work then there was a detailed invoice given to the customer :?



Haitham Ali made the post Maz...If that is his real name
q
So there an interesting back story to this that I only heard this morning.....Mr Ali ( it is a real fella) contacted me to confirm Maz had carried out the work and in October he was stopped by the police for no front indicators ( due to removing the mirrors to use bar end mirrors)......oh...and also no MOT .....
The bike was impounded and this was bad timing as Mr Ali was travelling the next day to work overseas for two months....he was unable to release the bike as was a relation who tried and consequently the bike went to a police auction. It was bought and sold a couple of times ending up with me.
And all for the sake of a pair of front indicators.
:shock:


Interesting..good score though!

Hi Ohsteveo,

I went to a classic bike show a couple of years back expecting to see some Norton’s and Triumph’s , only to be greeted with lots of Jap 70’s-80’s bikes :roll: and the prices they were asking for some of this stuff OMG :shock:
I guess it’s an age thing and I should be looking at vintage bike shows now :old:
