Do you have a classic Japanese motorcyle?
I'm not a motorcycle dealer or anything like that. I'm just a keen amateur working with very limited resources, so sadly I can only buy motorcycles for cash as funds allow. However feel free to ask me if you have something getting under your feet that you want rid of, I might just know someone who wants it.
If you are reading this and have some classic Japanese bike spares laying on a shelf or cluttering up the garage or shed please don't bin them, they are getting harder and harder to find. That old Jap bike hidden up the corner, or in boxes around the house, might just be salvageable and I'll willingly come and get stuff to save the scrap man melting it down.
Me, my brother Chris and a good mate called Matt spend as much time as the families allow either riding, going to motorcycle events or tinkering with one bike or another. We are always happy to meet new people and often get contacted by people sharing a similar interest in classic Japanese motorcycles. If you're interested give us a shout, we may be passing on our travels.
We've done quite a bit of trail riding, mostly in Wales with Big Pete, Andy and the boys from the Worcester TRF. It's been fun over the years and we've met some great people.
Honda CB1100R & CB900F
I've always wanted a CB1100R, ever since pressing my nose up against the window of Devimead in Tamworth and seeing one. My humble steed that day was an AP50 and I swore one day I'd buy myself the big Honda.
Having saved for a long while I found this D model for sale and have spent a little time gently restoring it to it's former glory. It recently won a highly commended at the Stafford Show, much to my amazement - I thought I'd only put it on the owners club stand to make up the numbers. Thanks to Matt for the help, RS Paint for matching up the swinging arm paint and providing a can, and Motopaint for the superb job he did with the engine casings.
The CB1100R owners club is a useful source of information if you are interested in the model, if you already have one why not come along to a meeting or join us for the European Rally in Holland this June. If you have a Honda CB900F or CB750F and want some help or contact with others who have one why don't you have a look at Matts website.
