Tom,

Have to agrree with GeoffT - your web site is great. Was particularly interested in your Motad experience as I am contemplating a set for my 550K3 which is destined to become a cafe racer. I was advised that the Motad set is a bit more civilised than the Marshall Deeptone...

Keep up the good work!

Hi all, newbie here from East Sussex. Just acquired a project CB650Z, and I'm putting together a log of the work (when I do some). There's plenty of it required as you'll see if you look here - http://uk.geocities.com/cb650@btinternet.com/. I'm in no hurry....

Hello Phil.  So "east Sussex" = ?  Hastings?

I was down there on Friday (on my VFR). That A21 is a right PITA!

Fill in your bio with a few more details...

Hi Steve, no, bit further north than Hastings. I'm in Uckfield. You're right about the A21. We've got some good roads around here, but not if you're trying to get anywhere, if you know what I mean.

Wow, can't believe its almost a year since I posted a message in here. Doesn't time fly?  :D

Of course that CB550 was finished and sold. I've now got a replacement (or two)  8)

Mate,
That is a special looking F1, it looks new, did you restore it? Nice beemer also.
I have an F650, but sold my F1; will be getting a K when the weather improves.

Hi UKers
I am the proud owner (nearly 31 years!!!!) of a 1972 cb750 K1 It is my pride and joy (and a large part of Mr Silvers retirement fund judging by the wedge of invoices from him in the restoration) I am based near Middlesbrough in the North East and would love to hear from other owners to arrange ride outs etc

Babyfood1217 (Chris) is heading over here this summer and is looking for help drinking English beer. Telford is a bit far for me but I'm sure that you norverners will help him out.

Thought I was on this already, I'm here on the Wirral, I have a 1976 CB750F1 which I bought new in 76, and which is currently making me poor and David Silvers rich, following on from the F1 on the money pits stake will be my 1977 CB750F2, if I live long enough I will get around to my 1964 BSA A65, which I bought after passing my test in 68 or 69. Or I might sell the lot and save money buying a modern bike !

Blaize, PM more details for contact when you have them.

Welcome (in advance) to the Southern England Riders. There's loads going on and nowhere is very far in this small country.
