Dominique, where is the little Yamaha 100cc twin?

I have sold it to a pal of mine. The 54 Tiger 110 went to Dubai.

Ahhhhh, I have a '57 Tiger 110 in my garage. Restored by my late father. Is the only one of his bikes that I kept as when, as a youngster racing MX, we would be in the workshop together - he working on this restoration project, and me on my MX bikes. good memories of relationship forging with my Hero!!

There we are......Queenstown I think. Fokken cold that morning.

The original Tenere, I believe the '83 had different chain adjusters to the '84 ? See you have the toolkit which is quite rare.

Yep the 83 had the chain adjuster on the inside of the swingarm (34l) but I  think it changed in 85 with the 55w model to outside. The tool boxes are rarer than rocking horse poo.
