    Hiers Mamma met haar Toy Boy.

    Selfs al het ek bike boots aan en my pens is ingetrek is sy nog STEEDS langer as ek.

    Soos julle kan sien rook ek nog steeds, ek het Camel Filters by my Lesotho pel laasweek gekry.

    Jo........this old Tenere has more damn parts than my Trollie!!

    Busy cleaning her up a bit, got some weird and wonderful ideas to personalise her to suit me as an occasional weekend trip old school Thumper.

    New clutch plates, new carb (from an XT550), busy with tidying up the plastics, got a Dakar type screen, rims are being anodised and true'ed again, and then that's just kick and go thumping over weekends.

    LOVE this old thing

    I want to transform it into something like this...........graphic pics I know

    Nice tank bag, storage inside that Dakar screen, and some sort of soft luggage in a "loop" at the rear. Probably everything made from nice tough canvas, I have a pal that does that (Tentco).

    That old Tenere came out lekker I think, got it back this morning.

    Carb and clutch sorted, rims redone, Kappa screen, etc etc.........just have to fit side panels again.

    Pulls like a train.

    Anyone who can recommend a good upholsterer with knowledge of bike seats that can convert the original seat into a Corbin - type single seat??

    It has the aftermarket BMW Comfort seat, double, VERY nice, but I got the other original seat with, and would like to convert that

    So................I would like to convert this into the shorty............
