Found this while going through garage. My dad bought a brand new YL1 for R325 ! R3 for number plates. Memories.

See that little silver/chrome cover on the r/h side of the engine?

The old Cobra floor polish tins, those that looked like large "Nugget" shoe polish tins, fits over their in a nice tight fit. :ricky:

My 100/2 had such a cover for a while........ :biggrin:
