Member Info: Iīm 44 and have ridden bikes for 35 years. Currently own a 1997 Royalstar and a 1979 yamaha Ag in almost original condition with only 3000 klm on the clock. A few years ago I came accross an old Royal Enfield in a farmers shed. All he wanted was a carton of VB for it. I couldnīt resist. Later on (a couple of years) I sold it for $1000 sight unseen, as I knew deep down that I would never get around to restoring it. Still wish I had it though as it gave me a great deal of enjoyment just sitting in the shed. Every now and then iīd pull it out and show someone, then put it back. Great Stuff. In my job I have a lot of contact with local farmers, often visiting their farms. We all know what farmers are like, they never throw anything out. That´s where I see a lot of bikes left in the back of a shed. Particulary now that quads have come into vogue. Often the old bikes can be picked up for bargain prices.

Info: Bought this off a neighbour about three years ago. It has 3000 genuine klms on the clock. The only thing that it was missing was the indicators and front rack. I currently use it a couple of times a week checking fences, travelling between home and machinery on our property.

Info: I purchased this bike from a local farmer a couple of weeks ago for $200. It belonged to his father that recently passed away at 93 years of age. He hadnīt riden it since he was 85 as he lacked the power in his legs to kick it over. I have completly dismantled it at present and am in the process of a ground up restoration of it. It has 5500 genuine klm on the clock, but they don´t look look l

Purchased: Feb 2005
Info: Now this is a little jem. Only 5166 genuine klm on the clock, and it looks like how you would expect it to look, almost new. It even has the original front tyre on it. Had a slight accident back in 83 and the owner kept waiting for the fellow that had the accident to come good with the repair costs. He never did and the owner lost interist in it, so it sat there with a cover over it. Purchase pric
