Joiner from Amsterdam
on: July 21, 2021, 06:01:12 PM
It's buiker because I live in Buiksloot, which is a little village in the north of Amsterdam. I found the new gear shift for my Explorer XC in this forum after a miscalculation in the rough somewhere in the Netherlands so why not join in?
My other bikes are currently a Velocette MAC, Matchless G11 and a Mathless G3LS. The G3LS is my first bike, which I bought in parts 48 years ago for €50,- and the bike has been throughout Europe. Sad to say it's in parts again, but restoration is in the planning.

Groetjes Peter

 :400: to the family, Peter. What a great looking Matchless! I've only seen one in person and that was at my local Triumph dealer who is also big in old vintage British bikes.
