New fromNetherlands

Unread post by Ruud109 » Mon Jun 10, 2013 9:29 pm

Hello folks,

My name is Ruud, 36 years old and living in the Netherlands. I have been a classic bike enthusiast for the past 25 years and currently own a 1978 Harley Shovelhead in running order, and a 1930 Terrot HSST, a french twinport OHV 350 single with some racing history currently in parts for a complete restoration.
Though my current stable lacks something British, this is where my true love is. I also own a 1972 Land Rover 109 with galvy chassis and 200tdi conversion. Im planning to sell this (or pxchange) and finally get a british bike!
My main area of interest is mid twenties to early fifties, though I also really like 60s models.

Sounds a nice Landy, apart from the HD I dunno what the others look like.

Oh & welcome :D

This is the 1972 Land Rover, which I might bring back to England this summer (its right hand drive) to sell it there or exchange it for a classic bike. Its on galvy chassis, 200TDI, overdrive, new loom, parabolic springs etc. Otherwise I'll sell it over here.

I like all of them 8-)

I had a SIII Ltwt with a V8 dropped in for a bit, was good fun but fell apart a lot because the previous idiot had no spanner skills.

Lightweights are good fun, so are V8! Problem for me is it is taking up too much space and not enough use. And with the cash I'd rather spent it on a brit bike currently.

Ps.. you can see a small part of the HD in the first pic!
