So after 15 months of ownership and 26000km, I came to the conclusion that I need a second bike to use for work so as not to prematurely burn out the T7. 

I wanted something small, light and even more economical than the T7.....oh and something a lttle bit odd.

So when I spotted this yoke on a bike sale website I thought it might just tick all the boxes. 

Bought it, brought it home and 250km later and i've got to say that it is ideal and great fun.

Don't all laugh at once now

You could turn it into a mini bobber.  Already has the look.  223 !  That seems rare.  Is it?

@electric_monk  What year is that bike? At first I thought it old with the rear drum brake, but I am second guessing that now. I don't think we ever had that model here in North America. The simplicity of an air cooled single cylinder bike is very appealing. I have three different older dual-sports like that and they have proved bullet-proof.

Don't like or get the whole bobber thing... 

The bike is too nice and original to mess with and yes they are pretty rare, certainly over here it is.

Very cool!  Reminds me of a yammi twin I owned, my first street bike, a 500 or 650?  Way back in the 1970's
