I was 17 in 1977 when this bike was made, and other than being in The Clash, it was what I wanted most in the world. Sadly I couldn’t afford it and so I bought an AMF 125cc Harley, which was my first proper bike.
So when I saw this bike on EBay a few years back – unrestored but ready to ride and well looked after, I couldn’t resist it. I have put a 1000 miles on it since and still love taking it out on a summers day. I have sort of plans to customise it but I suspect I wont….well not for a while anyway.
