Regardless of "For Sale", there is something to be said for appreciating and preserving the history of our bikes, and that goes for the partial customs, like mine, as well. If we cared not at all for the history, style and attitude, we might all just as well be riding Suzukis.

Very true Richard. Stock or modified our bikes still represent a golden age in motorcycling. I would have to be pretty down on my uppers to ever part with my 2 A's. But I would like to add a new Thruxton to the stable.
 Does anyone have a good picture or a real RGS frame?
Cheers

Good on ya Nick,
You've got your opinion, I've got mine,
learning about your opinion doesn't help me much!
This is my hobby & I enjoy working on bikes & restoring
them keeping them as original as poss., & if I there's
extra money at the end for another project, "thats great"
