Hm, just to add to Joe C's desease, do you want to trade stuff for Laverda cafe? e-mail [email protected]. Love to get bikes with massively heavy motors.
Just to let you all know the extent of the disease, I have Honda 175 sloper race bike, Honda 175 vertical race bike, Suzuki TS 50 race bike, BMW R60 1968, Honda CB750K 1978, Suzuki T20 complete. The following bikes in parts for restoration in "retirement" - yeah that is going to happen!!!
2 Norton Commandos, 1 750 combat, 1 850 interstate, 2 Laverda SF1 750's, 3 Triumph Bonnevilles, 1963,1967 and 1970, Suzuki T20, MAtchless G12 CSR,
Other stuff hanging around in parts:- Matchless G9 1960, BSA B25 1970 and 1968, 2 Clymer Indian 50cc, Suzuki T250, Honda SL 350 frame and three motors - abandoned racer project, Suzuki TS50 spare for racebike. Bridgestone 175 twin for a race bike. A basement full of stuff
Most importantly a patient wife who lets me get on with my hobby.

Hello Again,
The only bikes I am willing to get rid of are the Honda 175 racers. one vertical and one sloper. As usual - see reason for this thread earlier - each ones comes with a spare motor, spare frame etc. The Honda SL 350 stuff can go as well. The Nortons are promised to my sons along with a Bonneville each - I will have my revenge when they spend the rest of their lives cleaning up oil leaks from the Brit twins and trying to keep the carbs synched, if they can get them started.

The stuff for restoration in retirement is not going, the Nortons, Bonnevilles, Laverdas, Suzuki and Matchless. Let's have a sense of decorum here!!!!
Although my wife is very good about my hobby/disease, any empty garage space is immediately filled with her hobby stuff,tables, chairs, draws etc. So one golden rule is don't create enough space for the wife to move into the garage with her stuff. The other is don't leave them alone with your stuff for long - she sold a Lotus Europa while I was working in Europe for a few weeks. She got fed up of pushing it!!
