Aah yes, de-coking.  I once threw my 50's header and silencer in the fire to try and remove the carbon.   :laughing4:

My First then was later transformed  :biggrin:

Hard work to achieve one of the ugliest bikes I have ever seen!  (still you were a proud owner at the time?); And how many bikes did we cut up in those years to achieve the chopper look; shame on “Easy Rider”, the movie that was driving our thinking…..

My eerste was 'n Suzuki TS 125. Daai fiets kon enige iets doen. Die beste was wanneer die ander outjies met hulle TZR125's wou "dice"... ek het nie eers agtergekom nie, want Suzi het net oop geloop onder hulle uit... :ricky:
Nadat ek haar gehad het en aanbeweeg het, het my boet (Mielies 25) haar oorgeneem. Die fiets het bly perform...totdat iemand eendag by die skool die carburator gesteel het!!! Dit was tragies. Die enigste manier om 'n nuwe carb te kon kry was om een van Japan af te bestel. Daai tyd sou dit iets soos R4000 gekos het om in te voer... Bobby Scott het toe plan gemaak en 'n DT 125 carb maak pas op die Suzi. Alhoewel sy weer aan die beweeg was, was al die flair en torque weg gewees... :'(
Die fiets was oorspronklik (deur my Ma  ???) gekoop vir R11 000 en Mielies het hom verkoop (met die make-shift carb) vir R8000.

Ek het ongelukkig nie digital foto's van haar nie, die een hieronder kom die naaste, alhoewel myne blou was

I had a red TS just like yours, was a 185 if I recall correctly - the exhaust was a straight piece of water pipe going out the back, man did it make a noise. Used to drive skelm through town onto my uncle's farm next to our town and go watch movies at the drive-in.

My eerste twee-wiel was 'n Vespa.  Ek het hope sorgelose dae op dit gehad.

ATGATT was nog nie in my woordeskat nie   ;)  Hierdie is foto's van die eerste Toy run wat ek gedoen het.  Ons het heel voor in die run gery saam met die Italian Club. 

Weet jy hoe lyk 'n klomp Vespa's wat saam opstart?  Dis net blou rook wat in die lug hang!   ;D

People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

This was the one bike you never took on with your ordinary fifty. Short robot dashes maybe, but when that enjin got a chance to wind up, you did not see it again  :eek7:

My first bike.
Could get 60mph on it.
It is better to burn out than fade away.
