Motorcycles and knees. At a certain age, that can be a somewhat difficult combination. By kickstarting. Recently an 83 year-old exchanged his Velocette for a BMW R100RT. With starter motor. And he got serious money too.
The result of this piece of aging is that there is currently a cautiously growing range of English motorcycles that have been 'with enthusiasts' for years. The prices are generally reasonable and in any case asking prices.
In the current traffic scene, an English classic from the fifties and sixties is again absolutely traffic compatible as long as the brakes are taken into account.
The sound of such a Brit is always fantastic.
But what really makes you happy is: the parts supply is almost optimal and the prices of the parts are often worth a joy.
Anything to think about after these beautiful autumn days?
