I will go with that, a very very early one too

When I worked in central Manchester I would regularly see one in a custom yellow and black paint job. It looked like a can of Boddingtons

Interesting that bikes are being bought from the netherlands or going the other way for sale, funny that bloke didn't ask you what the f**k you were up to.

PeeBee he told me that he had built it himself, so I dont know, except for it having 6 funny stick out exhaust pipes

Bet he smells nice after a long ride.. I don't know if you have noticed that when a mobike goes by you can smell a slight oily wiff in the exhaust, but never with a car...................STRANGE.

probably down to different fueling..or higher reving engines

I put it down to the introduction of fuel injection and catalytic converters

It looks like they were moving the stock out of the showroom, maybe they are not planning on reopening after the lockdown

Yes TTS a lot of it going on the trailer, I spoke to the southern lad who was loading them on there but he asked me to keep my lip buttoned

My laptop is broke due to me smashing it’s head in in a fit of rage, so I’m struggling on a mobile phone and cannot post links. So, you’ll have to type the following into your search bar yourself. If you read it, fully, it might throw light on my above comment.
