All done. Just need to MOT it now and give her a well earned clean. Had a bit of a fight getting the back brake working but all sorted.

Hi Pookie,

Glad to hear you're still enjoying yours.

Not many standard ones left now.

Gonna be rarer than a rare thing soon.

Cheers,

Andrew

According to the 'how many left' website there were 12 Kr250 b2's (original Kr-1) registered with the dvla this year, one more than the year before, this doesn't include ones that are sorned, because the data is taken from the dvla there might be a few Japanese or elsewhere imports included in that figure, I don't think the guy who had his up for sale on e-bad for £7500 had any takers, still it's better than money in the bank and you can't crank a bank statement over at 80mph! here's a pic of mine taken recently, its just passed 15000 miles on the clock.its never been restored and apart from new consumables (tyres. batteries, brake pads etc) it is totally original, its still on the original chain and sprockets :shock: (Andrew, i've still got the 'as new' looking tank I bought off you ages ago, its sitting in my loft)
