When I was 16, the photograph (above) was my idea of utopia. An RD350LC & a bird. I had a Honda SS50 at 16, closely followed by a Kawasaki KH250 on L-plates at 17. Both of them were crap & didn't get me a bird. I eventually bought a Yamaha RD250DX (which did the trick) & passed my test on it. This was closely followed by my first RD350LC & a couple of years making constant visits to Magistrates Courts & A&E departments.
An RD350LC DIDN'T get me a bird. All it got me was a 6-month driving ban (aged 18) & lots of fines & scars..... BUT... What fantastic memories my mates & I have of those days. The same bunch of lads are still enjoying motorcycling now, in our 50s. Over the years, some mates have sadly passed on.
My shop is born out of trying to source parts for restorations. I've ended up buying complete job-lots of old stock from dealers. I'm an enthusiast, not an expert. I describe things as honestly as possible & hope you enjoy browsing my shop. - Thanks, Lee.
