AKA my wee baby. From back in the days where the pirate model (an extra arrrr!) meant something. High lift cams, working slipper clutch(the standard model's springs were too strong), FCR carbs, close ratio gearbox, better shock..... This pic is something like 25 years old - not long after I picked it up. It's got greener since then(fairing was damaged by vandals and the tank was rotting inside due to a leaky cap seal that it took me ages to notice) Scored a tank and plastics off a low milage later model for a decent price on ebay. Last rebuild cost me a small fortune in rubber bits. O-rings all round, grommets and allsorts. Just hit a certain age and all the rubber perished at once. Keihin alone hit me for a kidney and my first-born son for an envelope of o-rings that must have weighed about five grams. How cute are they? Spring-loaded rocker arms that slide aside to let you in to the shims. If only all top ends were as easy to service.... No idea what milage it's done, it eats speedo cables and sometimes it'd be months before I'd fit a new one. Says 39k (km) on the clock but that's fantasy. Probably about twice that - when I bought it the cable was broken and the speedo had been prised open already. Not that I was caring - was a good price even though it'd been clocked(and wheelied mercilessly. Fork seals, headrace and front wheel bearings, cush drive - all shot to hell and the clocks said 5½k at the time - yeah, right!) Other(other) bikes have come and gone but this one's a keeper.
