Honda NC700 S

Family and Friends Posted on Sun, September 01, 2019 10:43:55

To prepare Ida, our youngest daugter, for the next class of motorcycle A2, (middle class), I bouht this used Honda NC700 S y/m 2012, the same type as the NC700 X i used to have from the same year.

It is a 35 Kw (A2) motor, twin 270 degrees crank, 670 cc with ABS, Combi Brakes, Cathalytic Converter and fuel consumtion below 3.5 liter per 100 km. High torque in enginge from low rews. NC stand for New Concept, and where the tank is, there is a large space for cargo or your helmet when stationary.

Will be a good road runner as this is low as well as have character as an old BSA Twin, even lower top rews (max 6.500 rpm).

Here i am getting the bike home. Ida can start training on the bike from the Spring 2020….

Ida, wanted to ride motorcycles so we happily provided this new Honda CB125R in 2018. I Single Cylinder 4-stroke 125 cc Honda. Can make 500 km on one tank of fuel.

Modern with ABS, Cathalytic Converter and LED lights all around. Should serve her well for the comming two years.

Honda NCS50

Family and Friends Posted on Sun, September 01, 2019 10:22:08

Our youngest Ida, used this Honda NCS50 Moped for about a year before going in to motorcycles. Bought used 2014 year model in 2017.

Worked well without no hassle, 4-stroke engine wery low on fuel consumtion.

Johanna, our middle daughter, used this Moped for a year before she had a nasty accident. But som years the moped surrected again after bying a donor bike to fix it in useful condition again.
Used during a number of years from time to time and always served well.

Pictured when we bought this used 2002 year model in 2007.

David our son, used this Yamaha DT50 Moped for som years before went over to 4-wheel rides instead.

We renovated the tired 1990:s moped and made it nice with modern Yamaha badges. Here pictured in 2005 before the renovation.


Bodging in the workshop Posted on Sat, December 30, 2017 12:38:25

About a year ago i had opportunity to by something i had been interested in since many years, a BSA B50T Victor, 500 cc single cylinder from 1971. This was not i the trim and look i wanted but it is a start.

So during last winter this project came between the A65 buld and took all time and by the end of this summer (2017) it passed the MOT. It now got the looks but need more work to get back the original performance in the machine.

This will be a pure green lane bike, the speed performance will be low (original) but perfect for off road and really small road driving.

As I quit som of the original components as winkers it is more sutible than the original as the less stuff that is in the way. Looks more as the Motocross version but on licens.

The B44 Victor Special is home again

Family and Friends Posted on Mon, August 08, 2016 21:10:46

Camillas old BSA B44 Victor Special 1970 is back in our stable again. After we had the opportunity to buy it back in November 2015 it is now finished and back on the road again.

The bike was sold in pieces some 18 years ago and we could buy it back from the same guy that we sold it to, still in parts…

About a half year later, June 2016 it is assambled, registred and road legal again and have done som smal trips…

Nice bike!

New thing in the Garage

My Motocyclography Posted on Sun, October 26, 2014 18:03:44

The Honda NC700X went out this august and was replaced by older and heavier Harley Davidson XR 1200 R of 2009:s vintage. Loads of torqe and quite sporty to be a Harley.

Now Camilla and i can go on non BSA meetings on the same Brand when we are ‘civilians’. It feels like the old BSA:s are old and a more modern type is nice to have.

This picture is taken today on 26 October 2014, and it was not raining… The firs day for several weeks without rain, cloudy but ok. Here the bike is with the leafs that fallen of the trees so far in Björnås not so far from home.

Can’t wait for next spring, it is too far away…
