A few 2 strokes to start off with from wednesday evening ride outs

Back in the 70s all mopeds had to have pedals

1975/76


The Suzuki 250 X7 which was apparently faster than the old GT 250 that it replaced


1981/82


A lot of peoples favourite, the Kettle, as it was affectionately known

Another 1975/76 bike

A very non standard rear disc brake and mag wheels


A Honda 750 F2 I believe









I have never seen this particular model before




A dry sunny day yesterday on bank holiday sunday and a ride out was enjoyed

Going through a village I saw a sign for a vintage event and decided to go for a look, I was certainly glad that I did




That top box just looks so out of place to me




Away he goes









This guy was getting well stuck in


A good old bit of 2 stroke smoke being emitted there







































I started my bricklaying apprenticeship on 10th june 1974 and we had a mixer identical to this one (its probably the same one)

I remember being told to keep the water topped up in the open tank but these were very soon replaced by air cooled ones

This was a fantastic happen upon event that I had no idea was on. I was just fortunate enough to be riding through the right village on the right day and hopefully you will enoy this event through these photos almost as much as I did by actually being there
