You Dutch sure know how to live it up and annoy the neighbors with your crazy antics. 

 

By the way, does that bike qualify for the "bromfiets" paths?

Ciao,

Today was a very special, albeit sad day.   Fred, a very active member in the Dutch VFR Club Nederland had passed away following a mc accident before Easter. He never woke up from the coma.

Not sure, but saw his daughter Candy.   If there ever was an apt name for a female....       Speaking of raw, utter sexiness.............................      

And it must be contagious.......  Thank you Keny!!!     Went to look at 2 today, 1st one was grotty beyond belief so I didnot even make an offer   The other one was the other side

:goofy: I will continue to do the maintenance on the VFR....

 

 

 

 

A bromfiets has <50cc; the Gilera has 150cc.....

 

As for bicycle/moped lanes, the law changed a little while back to move bromfietsen onto the main road.  The bicycle lane is now reserved for -you guessed it- bicycles and snorfiets on which no helmet is required. The latter a restricted bromfietsen which by law must not exceed 25KMH top speed. They do ofcourse in practise, but that is another matter.

 

 

The exhaust on the Gilera was gutted :tongue: by a PO so I fabricated a DB-killer. But it is not as effective as I'd liked. So more thinking and tinkereing is required...

Hunting for an oil drip on the VF500F2, I inspected the drain plug first. But no. I could buttun it up a tad firmer but that was not it.

 

So I suspect the clutch rod seal. But no. Dry as a bone.

 

Then I noticed that 1 bolt from the clutch/front sprocket cover plate was covered in oil.

The crannk case is one piece and I assume that bolt does not go insite the carter so I'm at a loss here as to why this bolt is covered in oild..

You gave him the bike, and a free maintenance program with it?!  How about a Shell credit card for when he needs gas? 😁

Parked up in a car garage, wife came and picked me up.  Arrange a trailer tomorrow to bring her home...

Why didn't you just turn the thing upside down and patch the tube like a proper Dutchman?
