Repsol HRC 4RT Motessa (Honda)
BSA C15 Otter Framed Pre-65 Trials
Honda NCX750 ABS
A very different bike to my previous NT700VA, the NCX750 is still a twin cylinder but a lot more power and better handling.
The standard screen is too small for touring
Fuel tank is a dummy, so used for storage bin. Fuel tank is under the seat, filler under flip rear section.
Beautiful bike to ride (although a twin rides like a triple), plenty of engine braking and returns around 65 mpg. Range is around 170 miles with a full tank, ABS front and back with Bridgestone Battlewings as standard. Added a taller Givi Screen and full Givi luggage set and TomTom Via Sat Nav, so far been to France on a WW1 WW2 Battlefield Tour and The IOM for the Festival of Motorcycling.
Carentan Cotentin Peninsula Normandy
IOM Ballacraine to Glen Helen
Yamaha RD400 ‘D’ Model 1977
The bike is UK spec registered in 1978, lots of problems when I bought it. But finally after an engine rebuild it is running fine, now converted to electronic ignition it’s like a new bike
The Higgspeed expansion chambers combined with Duel Stage Boysen Power Reeds and 140 main jets, gives the bike a good spread of power.
