Default a couple of beauties, and one never to see the road again

a completely restored gpz1100 1981 with only it's odometer betraying it's not fresh from a 1981 showroom

a 1977 gs750 partly restored.

a triumph 900 legend destined for scrap 14k on the clock but kissing a solid oak 18" diameter gate post did it no favours

Ah the legendary Kwak sidestand switch. Jointed out and binned on all mine and I've never forgotten to pick the side stand up 26 years, ride a trike now and still wanna put mi foot down when I stop tho....
The B1 had a different fuel injection system, air metering unit and cylinder head to the following models. Still a serious piece o kit. Love it.

the pic of the legend make it look like it's bent its forks.

but in fact the list is
front wheel
front tyre
front fork complete right side
stanchion for left side
mudguard
comp headlight and indicators
clutch slave
handlebars
instrument cluster
fuel tank
gear change shaft
gear change lever
left footrest
left silencer
rear indicator
tail light lens

not a bad list i suppose but for the insurance those parts total up to near on 3,500.00

yokes and frame may be bent also.

on a 1999 legend thats worth no where near that amount.
so will try and by the salvage off mrs nash
as recovery and storage is already up to 120.00

i always put a petrol filter with neobdynium (sp) magnets araldited to it on old bikes now, then if the tank gets rusty inside, the magnet will hold the fine rusty carb killing dust rather than it getting further down the line.

nice geep though!
