Thank you for the kind words IndianaB!

A couple of thoughts for when you mod your '99. The trials specific rear mudguard/fender mount will make for a cleaner looking back end than on mine. As will a different rear light/number plate. Also, the seat on mine is I think set too far forward (the frame doesn't have the welded on bracket and so the previous owner bolted a mounting into place - the wrong place I suspect!).

The standard trial bars are also slightly higher than the unknowns fitted to mine.

But hey, I like it!

That bike looks great  - I intend to have my '99 looking like like that when I have the '08 one in the stable.

More "thanks"!
The pipe (with heat shield, though I suspect that that doesn't make a great deal of difference) hasn't given me any "comfort" problems.
More problematic is getting it passed for road use: even with a mute fitted I think I was lucky with a sympathetic MoT tester!

Thank you! I think that '50s-'60s ISDT bikes are the best looking machines there are, so I guess that that is an influence!
Not actually a "road" - a bridleway. Road vehicles not allowed - so I went only far enough to take some photos. Paving for farm tractors I expect.

Nice looking bike.  Big mirrors, wide handlebars, high exhaust.  Beginning to look enduro.  What about the road?  Appears to be a dirt road that used to be paved with some kind of blocks.  But out in the country?  Interesting.
