I thought I was the only one still living!!
« on: June 06, 2017, 02:57:56 am »
Well hello South Africa! I've been on the forum for quite a while, but only now discovered the SA Branch.

I'm up here in Harare and have been (slowly) trying to rebuild a 750K2, carried all the way from Belfast (N Ireland that is). It's been a slow process because, if you think parts are hard to come by in SA, try Zim. Most of the bits I have sourced on eBay (US, Europe and other places) have been caried here to avoid the astronomical postage and of course the taxes and duty. I didn't know there was a source for spares/parts in SA!!

And just to confirm how daft I am, today, after years of looking for a bike to cannabalise, I took possession of a second bike - a very rough 750 K1. Cannabalisation is now pointless as I have already bought all the parts I need, so a second restoration/renovation will start shortly.

It'd be great to meet up with some of you guys next time I'm in SA (Probably 22-29 June in Durban and JNB area).

And if someone can post more details of the spares sources, I'd be very grateful.


CB750 K2 - A work in progress
CB750 K1 - The less, said the better!
CB450 K1 - It's black.
