Hoping these pics will load OK.

First is with my pal on his Shovel out in the wilds of Suffick the weekend before last.
Second is the Veefer after a Guzzi Club meet up (mine was the only bike there) on Sunday.

Cyclobutch- interesting how so many of us on this forum are attracted to similar bikes that are not BSA. I sold my Morini 3 1/2 about 2 years ago. Still have 2 Guzzi riders (v11 Lemans and V11 Stone Touring) and an Ambassador project. A lot seem to have Yamaha XTs as well (I have an XT500 that sometimes starts and an XT600 that always starts). Every time I ride a small block Guzzi I think I need to get one. Maybe someday.

Seemingly so. Not sure if it is an attraction to the quirky, or just the more interesting? I was looking at XTs when the Camel came up.

Indeed - Buzz buzz.

And ha - they must still be 10 a penny out your way. In dry dock at the moment investigating a charging issue.

10 a penny.... not quite
I belive a Nimbus bought inDk at the moment would set you back between 5000 and 8000 £ - so compared to good A10 at around the 5000 £ the Bumblebee keeps the price well - but a lovely and a very innovative bike of its age.... The Royal Danish Mail and the Danish Army was big users

Me on my dad's Triumph Terrier in 1956. I was 2 and my dad was 29. I don't know where he got those trousers but there was obviously no shortage of material at the time! Then me having a blast on my CCM when I was 29. On reflection that bike is probably the one which gave me the most fun, handled like a dream and bl**dy fast.

I'd swap my XT and my left nut for a CCM.

Hi Greybeard
Sorry, but no relations to the Madsen weapons, all the 'sen names are quite common in Denmark so we are many Madsens - but a bit more reading on the subject..
