They might not build them any more but you can still (just about ) buy a new one.

Not strictly true, all are welcome but you might find a Latin American skew to a number of the topics! alien

In cahoots? One thing you should know about me is that I absolutely abhor cheating of any kind. Even as a kid, if I thought an adult was letting me win at something, I'd stop playing.

So, no, I'm not in cahoots with anyone.

If cash had changed hands then it wouldn't be cheating it would be a contract!

None has of course, unless it's in the post...

Modern wiring on a Brazi. I've read so many stories of people who have re wired their Classic.

Fuel injection on both models with a shiny ECU to keep things running smooth. Very Happy

Keep 'em coming. I'd say the best thing is the people we've met from this Forum.

That comes under 'performance' in my list and adds to the fuel efficiency and reliability.
