Norfolk Motor Museum - Pictures...

I visited this quirky little museum a couple of years ago, they had this very low mileage MV in there...





Needs a little love to be honest

Exactly what model is it?

It could also do with some brakes

Wink Whaddaya mean?

It does have brakes (the mighty Sacrabs) and it stops (slows) just fine ................... when they work that is

One (important) thing I've learnt from riding the classics - braking is not a impulsive reaction it is a well in advance planned event.

Rob the particular bike in the museum is lacking at least the front brake caliper, as Ackers pointed out.
Well this sad looking example is doomed to be never ridden again, I guess.
And if, in the event the museum inventory gets auctioned or so, than the new owner would need to tackle this problem.

I think it might have a left side calliper as the cable seems to be going somewhere?

I love the "please do not touch the bikes" sign. Why? In case you do any MORE damage to them?

Need a Tetanus shot just looking at that rotor. That's just a sad sight.

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

Indeed Ralf one caliper is missing at the front, the left one looks attached, I was having a bit of a joke with this (brakes) as those with any experience with these bikes/brakes either want to keep them to keep bike original or go with the Brembo retro-fit if they actually want to know they are going to stop

I've kept the Scarabs on both my Ipotesis I am lucky that my brother in law is a brake guru who makes seals etc for me as a family favour at his home and keeps mine (sort of) stopping. I tell you one thing for certain Ralf, I never late braked (on purpose) into ANY corner with either of those bikes, the older 350B drum brakes have much more feel and security.

I guess it is the case, as with the first fuel injected bikes that the last of the old technology is usually better than the first of the new technology.

It does brake (excuse the pun) my heart to see that beautiful little machine in that order, with so little mileage I wonder where it was stored to have deteriorated so.

Hope you are well as are your beautiful bikes

@ Reckler re: rotor - nothing a squeeze of the lever wouldn't fix on a ride, providing of course you could actually get the piston in the caliper, once you actually found the caliper, to move to make the pad make any/some kind of contact and that's a big proviso! I won't tell you of my test ride when we first did the brakes on the Tributo Ago Ipotesi in the early 'home made seals" development phase - we'll just leave it at I am here writing this solely because the rear brake did make 'any/some kind of contact'


And LOL @ Ackers re: touching!

Love this stuff!
