I'm a U.K. citizen working in NZ for a while. I bought the bike about a
month ago to replace a Ford which was dying, as it seemed stupid to be
in one of the most beautiful countries in the world and not have a bike.
It cost me $1400NZ, which was pretty good compared to some of the other
stuff I've looked at, and although it's done a fair few miles, it's
tidy, well looked after and has never been crashed (very surprising for
a 12 year old bike!). It needed a new back tyre, chain, rear brake pads,
oil change and plugs. All very standard fare for an old bike. It doesn't
rev too well yet, so I need to clean the carbs and fuel filter etc. as a
priority. Apart from these things it runs very nicely, and handles very
well - my morning trip into work is about 200% better! I hope to do a
bit of touring on it, but need to sort out the rattly cam-chain first.
The photo is in my back garden, but I'm not in it - the people in the
photo are friends called Rob and Ro.
