Purchased: Dec 1977
Sold: Dec 1978
Info: There are no surviving photographs of my own motorcycle which I paid R 100.00 for in December 1977 - but it was the same colour and style as the one depicted here. I sold it again as parts / scrap end 1978 after a "mechanic" took the gear box apart because of a problem with the kick start idler and was unable to make it function after that. A sad day to leave it behind at a breaker
