Having had chance to ride of few adventure bikes over the last couple of years, and try a little bit of 'soft-roading' as well as a play on a couple of enduro bikes in a Welsh forest earlier in the year, I've had a bit of a yearning for a bike on which I can do a bit of off-roading, green-laning and maybe a long distance trial or three.
As a lot of us on here, I have an affinity for bikes of the Eighties, so it was always going to be a twin shock, air-cooled kind of thing that I was looking for.
And that's what I found...

Dafuq is that? Looks like an old trials bike.

A day looking over the bike, and setting down a list for new bits involved:-
Both tyres goosed
Rear brake shoes past wear limit
Carb float containing fuel, so a leak in it somewhere
Airbox containing no filter or filter carrier
Throttle cable sticking
Battery (6volt!) knackered
No chain
No chain runner in spring-mounted tensioner

Otherwise, it just looks as though it's suffered from having been stood for some time.
