Hi Nathan, gosh long time for sure!!!

That looks like some very very nice work indeed, I am a big fan of artisan shed work, I love it well done mate. Being pre 79 you don't need blinkers for the road but the lack of headlight & taillight could be a problem with the constabulary. :laughing:

Be careful with that kick starter, it is unusual to see it sitting outside the fairing, that's obviously a very narrow custom fairing, it be good for cutting through the wind on a bike that needs all the help it can get. I would suggest using some 3M clear protective tape where it might rub or spring back to when you start it - it is amazing stuff we used it on my sons downhill mountain bike when he was racing & it used to save the bike in some monumental crashes :jsm:

I do hope you are all doing well and please give my regards to your lovely wife.

You must post some pics up when you get her out on the track.

Cheers
Rob

Well done Nathan, starting to come together and I all ways loved the balance of 125 S styling :smoking::smoking::smoking: now.............................there is one thing however that is worrying me a tad...........:violin::violin::violin: are you a fan of Imelda Marcos???? I only ask re the number of Helmets in the case (would hate to see your shoe collection:naughty::naughty::naughty::naughty:) :jsm::jsm::jsm:

Don't forget Julian, I am Tasmanian, there is some joke about two heads?? But I am a firm believer every MV rider needs an Ago and Read helmet in their collection. I'll keep the glass cabinet out of pictures otherwise that could open up a whole new discussion of models and memorabilia! Re the Shoes... I think have more helmets than pairs of shoes!

The second picture I would love to say I was holding them all off, but I think they just wanted to follow me for a lap.

now that is way cool … a 125 sport at a track day. Just love it. Congrats Nathan. I took my GTLs to Broadford Bike Bonanza a few years ago and had a hoot with all 7 hp (at the back wheel). Soft shocks made for some interesting riding through the esses.

Nice One!
 
Hi Nathan,

Thanks for uploading the pics, there's something pretty special about seeing an MV on a track - I guess given their history with the oustanding successes and records, they will always be inextricably linked to the track.

They just look 'right' there - nice choice of leathers too mate, compliments the little beast nicely and some good style points in pic #4 :)

I've had almost as much fun as you having fun watching you have fun :wtf: - VERY cool.

Cheers
Rob

Really great to see You having fun with the little MV.
Yeah it is always fun and I miss it since I run last time at Spa with my 350.
One thing I would suggest to change the color of the number plate.
I mean the 500cc racers of that time had yellow number plates.
I think the 125 were green or black back in the days.
The other color had the 250s.
350cc racers had blue number plates.
Yeah I know I'm picky.
It looks really cool.

Ditto from me Nathan, great to see my "Ex"looking so good :yo::yo: I remember vividly the day Russ and myself went to look at the bike which had been used as a display in a foyer and had not been started for some time however Russ checked it all out and with a couple of solid kicks :f4 away we went :smoking::smoking::smoking::smoking: Just need the black number 1 to finish off :jsm::jsm::jsm:

As an aside, this Easters Broadford was a non event for the Bold bike, only got 100 metres down the front straight and :bawling::bawling::bawling: no gears:wtf::wtf::wtf::wtf: back in the pits a call to Albert in PA and....... no go with a fix:wtf::wtf::and back to the States she goes for a bit of TLC :):):):):jsm::jsm::jsm:

That sucks J. Your not going to get Brad to look at it?. Real pain in the ass and wallet to send it back to the States for repairs. :jsm:
