That looks amazing! Congratulations on a well executed restoration job. When you are ready for the next one, drop me a line. I've got several MZ TS125's it bits and also a Voskhod 175 that I doubt I will get around to doing up now that I have two Russian jeeps the require constant TLC. There is also a BMW R65 and a Ural project waiting to happen but I never seem to have enough time on my hands.

Will we get accused of vote rigging! :twisted:
Nice one Nutty. Something a little different!


Nice one McNut, your Neville is a tribute to real world resto's. I don't know about CBOTY vote rigging, if the Scoo... scoot.... Hairdrier mob can get a Lambretta to the front why not Neville :twisted: .

That is an astonishing transformation, McNut!

From a pile of rusty poo to a smart looking bike that runs properly.

If I ever produce a job like that then I will be well pleased.

As for "vote rigging?"
Well, I'm sure that other CBOTY entrants have had their mates / club support them.
Why shouldn't we do the same?
Just being old doesn't make it a "Classic."

Aaaah! Nostalgia is not what it used to be!

Exactly, the mates/clubs will do their best to get that entrant the win and so should we and we're international.

Of course some exposure in the magazine wouldn't hurt either.......
You sick little monkey!!!! Holy crap!!!!
