Its not Japanese but it is bloody gorgeous, and the type of thing I used to dream about when I was a kid- a 1948 Triumph on ebay here

Also not Japanese, and not a chop either, but it is quite British apolcalytic roadwarrior looking, a BMW on ebay here.

Very unusual KLR 600 engined chop which looks like it would handle well at speed. With a big single trail bike engine and zero weight I bet it accelerates like fuck too. If I didn't have a bike already I would be tempted to buy this bad bwoy. On ebay here

Or maybe its just global warming. Anyway, hopefully I am going to have a bike I can ride from A to B without breaking down with A and B being a bit further than my house and the supermarket. Meanwhile here are a shed load of tasty bikes on ebay at the mo.

Firstly a really mean looking ZZR1100 engined bobber here which needs finishing.

I'm not really into paintjobs and rarely see any that I like. I like this. A really cool looking GS750 on ebay here.

A shocked shaft drive GS850 which needs a lot of fixing

A non Jap bike slipping in cos its gorgeous looking. Looks seriously rideable as well. One of the modern Triumph Tridents which needs paint.

Finally not really a chop at all, here is a really nice tuned up flat tracked XS650. Come on everyone! Summer is coming!

For sale in London, a really nice GPZ1100 chop on ebay here

Also a very special GPZ750 engined chop with ZX9R wheels, ZX7R front shocks and loads of stainless bits. Really nicely finished.

A really nice CB750 which needs finishing

And a GSX1100 on Ebay here.

Meanwhile I am back to square one, the rectifier melting its wires again. I think I am going to relocate the coils under the tank and secure the rectifier where the coils were. Here's hoping!

Breaking down again meant I got to meet another happy chap from SOS Motorcycle recovery. They have been consistently good. When I phoned up thru my insurance company the automated message asked me if I got my policy before or after Jan 2011. Apparently Carole Nash, my insurance company have switched to the AA.

The S.O.S driver laughed. "They'll be back." he said. "once they have received enough complaints about the AA sending non bike trained mechanics out then having to wait another hour for recovery, and all the bent handlebars from car mechanics strapping bikes on too tight..."
