Having just posted about the MVX I recently resurrected, I feel I'm on a roll now so here's a diesel to keep the balance of 2 v 4 strokes.

Again, I've owned the wee beastie for a while now, but it needed a full respray, the chrome rechroming, the ali polishing and the wheels refurbing, so one day I ripped all the bodywork off and gave it to a friend saying the fateful words "no rush". . . . a year later I got it all back. Thank God I bagged and labelled everything when I took it off, otherwise I'd have given up! But after some jiggery pokery it all went back together eventually, and first time out was a accosted at the traffic lights by a pizza-delivering-yoof on a step thru questioning whther it was really turbocharged?! Pfft!! Kids!! Rolling Eyes

Hey, don't discourage the yoof. He's on a bike, and he's showing an interest. Both to be encouraged! Smile

STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT!! This bike gave me wood, as a teenager, and still does, but I convinced myself that the XN85 Suzuki was more desirable (well I think it looked more modern when these bikes were new)....being a Suzy fan n all. But good work, lovely bikes.

Lovely pair of GPz's...I've always liked the looks but not fancied the problem of keeping the turbo & electrics fettled! Hats off to you both for keeping these stunners alive.

I have a huge soft spot (like Crofty) for the XN85 though (fell in lust with them after seeing Barry Sheene trickle one through the departing crowd after a car GP at Brands Hatch).
