Hello, there

Post  Duckrider on Sun 8 Jun - 21:56

This is my first post here.

I am an owner of a Townmate T50. I own this green Yamaha for about 10 years.
I bought it in a very bad condition and i work on it hard to rebuild it.
In my country Greece there is no club, or forum for these small motorcycles so i decide to be a member here.

My English are not very well an i  I have need of your tolerance.

Gas, thank you a lot for your wellcome.

Yes, as i can see looking at net for a long time in Europe there are not any T50.
Mine is the classic old one with 3speeds and 6volts electric system.
I decide to change all the lights with leds and an electronic flasher made by me.
I will post my work at the DIY section, as i have a lot of photos.

I also have a black Honda Transalp XL650V2 , i rebuild it in new condition buying parts from Davidsilverspareres.uk.com.

Kind regards

Nick.

Α CB400F, i have a lot of memories with this motorcycle.

This was my first motorcycle i ever ride. I had to ride this one when I did my first driving lessons for drivers license.

I remember how friendly it was. I want to buy one but as i am 1,89m tall this bike was small for me.
I couldn't ride with my knees on the handlebars.  Laughing

Hi yes very small hence why I later bought this  :d\\'-\\': 



It was and is an XS1100E fitted with Kawasaki ZRX carbs and a more free flowing exhaust which improved fuel economy and overhaul performance Very Happy

Admin drgaz (i don't know your name yet) as i can see you owned a lot of motorcycles.
I always like cars.
My first was a 1974 Triumph Spitfire MKIV with 1275cc engine



I bought my first motorcycle the Townmate before 10 years for use going and return from work, but because i like finally this way of driving i bought this one ...











My black beauty, i keep this motorcycle in the best condition, like the first day .
