Silencer is exact copy in Stainless. looks right and fits right
Nice transferable reg valued at £1850
Currently taxed and obviously no need for MOT
I constructed a side stand which you can just see in rear wheel pic. it uses the footrest bolts underneath. HTs came without a stand but it becomes a chore looking for somewhere to lean it on !
