The infamous 'Knacker' now with its own identity and its very own mot and tax.

No sharing, spoilt isn't it?

In addition to standard features it no longer has a rigid front end or a self directional swing arm.

Oh and the new owner is with it!!

Good one, Bobby. She's looking good there  cool  but I can't see the patch of oil underneath.
New front mudguard as well to mach the proper rear mudguard.
But you still retain the powerful hooter I see.
It's not taken you long - This is my last picture of it on 31 May 2009.

Long may you enjoy the privilege of running such a classic machine.

PS - Thanks to Andreas for posting it and bringing a tear to my eyes.

You're never too old to learn something stupid.

Re: It Lives!!!!!

A day long in the coming. The Knacker rides again. I trust the new owner is going to maintain it in the fashion to which it is accustomed? I expect at least half a dozen split links in the rear chain.

Try me best - honest! big_smile

Re: It Lives!!!!!

I understand that it has now only on split like and in fact a NEW chain.
I have also heard that it completed the Felix Burke this weekend with only a lost gearbox bolt hindering it.

It will oc course be maintained to the usual Robinson Concors stanard.

Re: It Lives!!!!!

In 2005 the Knacker took me to High Force on Boxing Day - quite an uneventful day -  thankfully.  neutral
The snow lay qite pretilly on Bollihope on our return.
