New member, well quite an old person really.

Here you can post a picture of you and your bike. Also where you are located and if you are prepared to give local kettle owners some of your time and experience.Please don't do discussions here just some facts about yourself. This was Glens idea! Thanks BAZ

New member, well quite an old person really.

Post by saab9002 »

Hi everyone,
A quick summary, 68yrs old, live in Hampshire UK, had a Kettle approx 40yrs ago, when they were worth next to nothing.
In between then and now,
SUZUKI GS850
SUZUKI GT250K
SUZUKI GT250M
SUZUKI GS550
SUZUKI GT380
SUZUKI GT380
SUZUKI GSX250
SUZUKI GT250M
SUZUKI GT550M
I currently own a 1972 T350R and a D7 Bantam.

I've only listed the Suzukis but they are interspaced in time with various other makes, I've been rebuilding/chroming the front end
of the T350R, it's going quite well except if found that the handlebars are twisted, by the look of them, I think the bike fell on it's
left side at a standstill and the bars took the full force and have "canted" over to the right, so I'm on the lookout for another pair or
maybe get hem straightened but don't know anyone with the facilities to do so.
kind regards
Chris

think I have a set of bars in the shed that came off my T350J usable but would need a rechrome to be perfect if of any use to you
