Re: Classic at Bonhams

Sorry, the 13.000,- was in Euro's... It was 12.000,- in Pounds incl. premium, just checked on the Bonhams site.
I think the premium is 15%, so 10.500,- without it.

Re: Fork Gator Material

Hi John,

They couldn't help you? Odd and not very customer friendly.
A German company called "Motorrad Stemler" sell 10 types of gaitors. It's in their list "Adler to Zundapp" on their website. Worth a look.
I've bought many parts there in the past, always very good services.

Re: Fork Gator Material

Hi John,

I'd go for BMW ones. Call Motorworks in the UK with the dimensions and see what they have.
I once fitted a non original BMW rubber (the swingarm-gaitor) on my R80 and i got 4 years out of it. Putting an original BMW-one on, now having learned, it still is perfect after 12 years.

Missing bracket? Classic

When i look at the parts-drawings on the A/N-site, there seems to be a bracket fitted to a Classic that i can't find on my bike. It's number is 31 in the 013-drawing of the valances.

Re: brake pistons

Hi John,

Doesn't your Honda have a combined brakesystem? In wich one front disc works on its own, and the other front disc works together with the rearbrake?
That could be the reason i think.
