It started in 1975 with an assortment of Mobylettes and Raleigh Runabouts, then got serious in 1977 as we go through the list:
BSA D7 Bantam
Ducati Monster 600
Ducati Monster S4
Morini 3 1/2 Strada
Morini 3 1/2 Sport
Royal Enfield 500 Bullet.
On every occasion, once I decided what I wanted, I started looking and bought the very first example I saw. Luckily there were no disastrous purchases and I've enjoyed every single one.
So, if you've ever got a bike for sale and I give you a call, your luck's in.
