Saw this beauty,,

I had one of them in about 1990, spent a fortune doing it up. When I bought it, it was a bit of  a banger with loads of non-original parts, I used to go to this big bike shop in an old building in Salford with a spares dept. upstairs and get one part, then order another. Gradually transformed it, but had to sell it when I went bust in the recession at the time.

Almost certainly Queens Park.    Got my fizzy from there.   On hp. Or so I thought.   My old fella made me ride there every sat morn fer yonks to pay the mechanic in the Back garage my £4  ..  turns out it wasn't on hp at all. He'd paid fer it.  And They both went on the lash each sat on my money.
Nobs immature. I'm an adult.

Put a £25 deposit down one Saturday on a yeller Ts125er from there when I was 17. The next Saturday me dad took me down to get it back. Bike was about £12 a week, and I was on about £20 a week on a NTP course at Leigh tech. (15 from the course and 5 off me dad for doing saturday mornings with him)
I was giving me mam £6 a week, which she gave me £3 back for driving lessons, (do all mams do this ey1 ) and I needed 3-4 quid for shit like ale and me dinners. Poppa Nob had to explain that by then It would be sat in the garage all the time coz I couldn’t afford juice.

you were lucky (going like Monty Python) I was lucky in a way as a mate got his lass pregnant and was to marry her . He had to get rid of his Yam 200 as it was on the drip . Therefore  NO deposit but just take over the payments £12 a month with any bike Ins from Norwich Union  . All my dad did was guarantor . I even had to buy my own push bike  at 13 (never had one before) £3 , a Dawes Clansman .

Queens Park Motorcycles, that was it, what an emporium.
You had to wait very patiently in a long queue at the spares counter where everybody was ordering bits and the guy would either shuffle off to find them or take your order down.
But at least you could still get the original parts, at a price, I remember paying a fortune for a silencer.
