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

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.

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

I love that bike, best iteration of that model. During my formative years it was an RZ350 (which I have), one of those, or a GPZ550. If you were exceptional you could have aspired to an RZ500 or 500 Gamma, both sadly still out of my price range.

Visited Han (80) today, the 1st owner of my Gilera. And the man who completety overhauled and rebuilt it.

 

We then went for a spin. :beer:

The owner ("a gentleman of age") machined a compressor on it. But a age progresses, he swapped the unit for an electric starter....   To make up for the loss, a special cam was made and something technical with plug and welding on the head...

A smaller blower is in the works though...
