Seems they're popping up everywhere, these were spotted in Pool, Cornwall around the back of a Saab garage...









According to the guy that shot these photos, the collection has been slimmed down recently - but some of the older ones remain...

and so he did! I think the mods look great

You do find them Simon...i very rarely see a 900 let alone a V4 but I did "find" a 95 2stroke today that hasn't been seen out for 20 years..can't say anymore.

The mods seem to offend the bloke in the picture, he doesn't want to look at it

I wonder how he gets the back wheel back on, once removed. I have enough hassle with standard wings!!

Doesn't appear to be on Johns list but as it's got rubber bumpers it might have been changed to the very nice earlier reg.
Clicks across to DVLA and finds first reg 1.2.77 and tax due 1.9.14 so hopefully it's in good hands.

Despite Jack Astley in Yoevil and Olds in Portesham, 96's were pretty thin on the ground even in their day. It's Nicks stamping ground of course so he managed to route out the last ones, he found some very nice examples and even managed to eventually prise a nice blue Two Stroke off Jack which he was reluctant to sell by emptying a bag of 5 notes onto his desk

Just saw a nice 96 on Seven Sisters road near Manor House (North London). OGW95K I think. Anyone on here?

A bit gutted I wasn't in the 95 at the time! Ages since I've seen another being used round here.
