Hi new to rotaries, is Mr Cameron still around?

Post by RE5Anovice » Fri Jan 11, 2019 5:22 pm

Just treated myself to one of the few major bikes in the world i've never owned, a nice RE5.
42 years ago David Cameron bought my Honda 1974 CB500F from me as i recall and he was into the rotary bikes even back then i think. Is he still around, does anyone know?

Hi there!

Yep, still alive and kicking ... last time I looked!

This is all rather familiar...... I seem to remember you thinking I had bought a CB500F ..... but I cannot recall ever buying one!
(That’s not to say your memory is not better than mine!)

Welcome hback to) the world of rotaries.

You definitely bought a bike from me in Southgate N14 because you told me you were into rotaries which at the time i thought very odd but now have come to like them! Maybe it was another bike i had, who knows!
Whilst i am here i don't suppose you know the standard sprocket sizes of an RE5 with the 630 chain?

Ummmmm,

Were you in the Fire Service?

Could it have been a yellow Honda CJ360T you sold?

If not, curiouser and curiouser .....
