if you look at the stay on the front wheel you may just notice a nut holding it to the mudguard , if you undo it the stay folds down just like the rear one so as to lift the front wheel off the tarmac
handy for a front wheel puncher

as ive said its not mine it belongs to a friend he tells me its rather fast but not safe at any speed over forty as the brakes are how should we say , ornaments more than functional but saying that it starts and runs well very comfortable , he will cover 100 miles in a day if he's in the right mood,
had a row with the other half
as for a t80 leaving it standing I think you would have a job to keep up in a straight line

after what I know about the stopping ability I don't want to , also there's no automatic advance its all done by levers on the handle bars ,
no w
electric starters in them days, you even have to pump your own oil into the engine
if the 16 year old stole it they would never manage to start it
