Re: A legend passes

Thanks for that. I never knew much of the history behind wasp but back in the early 80's I used to go and watch the world rounds of Motocross when they came to the UK. Always thought the sidecar guys were absolute nutters, the sound of those old norton engined wasps was really something else, a true...

Re: mini tour on a mini bike

Nice one , great vid. As you say still some great rides to be had in blighty. As a southerner now living in France my only regret is not making more of an effort to bike round northern uk and Scotland when I lived that side of the water, there's still time I guess , it'll just be a longer trip to ge...

Re: Headlight

Maybe or maybe not, depends how close to the lens the bulb is. my old Beta enduro has a plastic lens, when i bought it secondhand it came with the 60/55 w H4 in place of the specified 35/35. There was no sign of melting of the lens though it's a relatively deep headlight unit compared to some . I te...

Re: Fantic 500s with the 6-spd Zongshen NC450 motor
