Yep, pretty neat machine.  I've always had a hankering to try a Puch 250 cc split single after borrowing my uncle's machine back in the 60's. A real grunty engine, but a heavy bike and the two carburetters were a bit exposed if dropped, nevertheless, I'd love to do an MCC rial on one.  Afraid now, they're a bit like rocking horse faeces.

Yes, I like the look of that..  :P

Started work on my next bike. It's Class A compatible. It's a 1963 JAWA 250.



Basically the road version of that ISDT bike I posted above. Tempted to make a replica of that but I'm in two minds at the moment. I also fancy just ditching all the tin ware, adding a sprung saddle and high level pipes etc.
