Now were can I get one of the these :?:
"Three gangsters chased James Bond down a bobsled run on Yamaha XT500's fitted with machine guns and long ice studs in the 1981 classic For Your Eyes Only."   Just the thing for those early morning maniacs in their mini-buses! :evil4:

The following links have the info:

Yammies at the olympics Re-enactment with modern bikes.
Thrills and spills on the bobsled run - an August 1981 report.




How about it DigitalDan.  Is this mod on your list?

As appie I used a 1970's 175cc trailie for commuting summer and winter(mid Europe, not SA!).
I had a set of knobblies with spikes which throw sparks if you lock the rear wheel on tarmac and allow you to pull incredible stunts like Ice - Speedway type slides when all the other traffic comes to a standstill because of snow and ice on the streets.
And my spikes were not even as perverted and requiring an dangerous arms license like the ones in the AT's tires. The normal car tire jobbies. They were already illegal at that time in Germany and you did better not to get caught by the cops.

Note the duct tape on the AT  :lol:

Biiiiig advantage of my little 175 :D

The ducktape IMO I believe is for when he does fall. Ask us AT people the spots covered up brakes if you hid the deck. BUT it looks so cool. :shock:

Was this in Munich? Where did you do you appie-ship? I lived a few years in Schwabing before moving out east to Erding. Erding Weissbier anyone?  8)  
 
The dealer I bought my Triumph from, Herbert Schajor, had a couple of female mechanics. But they scared me!  :oops:
