It’s a bit of a trials for Sue

It’s a BSA Bantam I’m building for my wife Sue. We bought this as a basket case, almost complete but as is always the case much of it was missing. The original idea was to build it as standard but I would need to buy lots of new shiny bits and that would cost more money so because Sue always liked trials styling, I decided to build this. The front forks are from a C12, I’ve lowered the sub frame and lengthened the swinging arm. The exhaust pipe I made…

N/W Roadrunner Projects No.7

Kinroad Chinese bike refurbishment Back in February 2015 I thought I should refurbish my Chinese motorcycle a Kinroad GY200 as a bit of a project.

N/W Roadrunner Project No.3

Chris Rimmer’s unusual but beautiful project I’ve always wanted a flat-tanker but never been able to afford one. The other year I saw one of those new Black Douglas Sterling flatties and realised I couldn’t afford one of those either! This led me to the only conclusion. I had to build one myself. Luckily I had a donor bike which could only ever be improved, no matter what I did, in the form of a Chinese AJS js125e. My son Harry had moved on to cars and gave me his…

It was October and we had got over the heavy rains that had caused all the flooding over the UK and the weather was a dry pleasant day and an opportunity to get out on the bikes in a lovely part of the world with lovely riding roads along with the scenery. I persuaded my…
