Muskrat,

Are those metric RPM? Sorry to hear of the hip troubles.

I see the loss of the orbiter as proof positive that metric has to go.

That's real thumping 10.5:1 four stroke revs Richard. It's hard folding myself up and the suspension too hard & very little seat padding. I should bring her back to std trim but I couldn't do it to my old race bike.
Cheers

Well my BSA has been around 60 years.

Plastic bikes comes and goes, might be Quick, but only for a short time.

MY old brummi bike keep  going... Up to the Ton, but running for decades.....

With Imperial messurement, metric bearings and metric pistons   :-)
