A new bike arrived just a few days ago, a green AS1 from 1970, not something you see every day. Unfortunately it isn”t the original colour, now the funny thing is how I know this. Along with the bike was the original registration! In order to get your licence plates you had to give away the registration, how they”ve managed to save this one I have no idea.

The next thing you notice is the engine, sometime in this bikes lifetime they”ve replaced the original engine with one from a 1973 RD125 to get more power. Though as luck would have it we have some spare engine blocks!

The bike will go on the bench during the week, hopefully it”ll be a quick job disassembling in so we can get a new bike up there 🙂
