|'84 Elefant 650, basically stock.||'84 Elefant bought in GB.|
17 in. front wheel, sort of a 'road warrior' look.
|Elefant in GB, as bought.|
|Alloy exhaust can; not rude; passed MOT fine.||Some odd chrome bits..||17in. front wheel with single bigger disc; works nicely.|
|Ready to roll with soft bags.||Scotland.||Scotland, Village of Pennan, where they filmed 'Local Hero'.|
|Smaller 'road' on the way from Bolgna to Sardinia.||On the coast road of Sardegna.||2010, before the Giro, I flew into Sardegna where I had left the 'fant with a friend, Diego. I swapped belts just to be sure.|
|Loaded up for the trip; I had the saddlebags together as my checked luggage; worked fine.||I spent one day riding up the island of Sardegna to the ferry port, slept on the ferry then continued to Bologna next day.||We had hoped to license the ex UK bike in Italy but the paperwork was horrendous. I ended up selling it to Bjarne from Denmark. He met me in Bologna and rode safely home.|
|Off the Elefant, onto the 175 Turismo.. the Giro started in Cannes, so I rode the 2 days there, did the event (5 days) then back to Bologna.. but that's aother story ;-)|
