I’ve got two of them, both exactly the same! Am I mad!??

Apologies upfront for discussing such a steed inappropriately on this forum!


No, that's not madness. It demonstrates a high level of appreciation for motorcycling history as you've saved two from oblivion :vcool

:D Nice to see your CX too, KeithZ1R.

As we're in a confessional and discussing Hodnas, I have a shed of a CJ250T.......

Ok let's get in on the act, I've probably bought and sold 10 over the years, never rode one though in bike form

Shows what a versatile thing it is, Swirl. :)

Do you still have a CX trike?

Does anyone know of a group/forum/club that would be able to help with old Eastern Bloc motorcycles?
I've been offered a late 1960s SHL Gazela M17, a 175cc Polish bike. Found pics on the internet with some specs, but no detailed info.
I know it's an ugly MoFo to a lot of people, but I like it: very MZ Trophy.
It takes all sorts... :D
Thanks in advance.

Gary.


So :ont how did you go on with the search ... he asked curiously :D

I've registered with the MZ forum and I'll see if any information comes back from there. :)

Failing that I'll look for a CX500...... :lol: :lol:

No mate, I sold it a good few years ago, it was fun to ride it was a 500 before I stripped it and rebuilt it with a 650 motor, wheelied for fun and went like stink, surprised a few people at the lights, it has been changed a bit since then and is red and for sale on facebook for 6k :roll: :blah I sold it for 2800 and started a new build
