    I have a modded Honda VTR1000. Bought it 5 years ago as slight accident, (been dropped at standstill onto left hand side), to do up & sell, rode it, sold the Gixer750 I had at the time, & still have it. V-twins, I just luv em...

    Had a KTM200 which I sold in november, used to do Enduro on, but lack of time put paid to that.

    Now, the garage I want is this blokes
    http://www.pbmagforum.com/forum3/7559.html

    Had road bikes since I was 16, starting with AP's, Fizzies, Suk GT50, through the Elsie stages up to now. Never been without a bike since I was 7.

    Later peeps, Shane, (York)

    When I sold mine they were rare, but I was young and wanted a car, so sold it to get a 1971 convertable Corvette.

    Did hear the guy killed himself on it shortly after, sad..
    It was ported and tuned so even more of a handful. Was mental, would wheelie and wheel spin at same time and handled like a dog.
    Thats why they had a world wide ban and were knicknamed the black widow. I think at the time stats said 3 out of 5 owners killed themselves on them.
    If I can sort piccys I'll get some up.
    Regards
    Gary
