Yeah, we were sorting out the heads and gaskets on his bike so used available fuel for cleaning. More here about his crappy Le Mans 2 http://italianmotor.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/maybe-italian-motorcycle-electrics-are.html

Spookily identical to my situation at that time!

If I'd tried asking for a loan for one my bank manager would've needed a week to stop laughing

I only asked a Bank Manager for a loan once.

He had known me and my family from the day I was born

Birmingham Municipal Bank it was.

He said no as I was a bad risk cause I was single.

Wanted £275 to buy an Austin 1100. I was 17.

Never liked Banks since.

Never again gave them the chance to make money out of me.

I borrowed £500 towards my T3. The bank manager was always very friendly and he gave me some very strong advice which I always remember: "you should go to Africa, young man. There's nothing left in this country. Rhodesia is the land of opportunity." He was probably only about 40 but seemed ancient. A year later Rhodesia was Zimbabwe. Good advice? Hmm.

I got it from a shop down a back street in Brighton, who's name escapes me, but they always had one or two Guzzis in their showroom.
 
Blimey yes, I remember them.
Going back to the early 80's
Funny little place.
They were a Honda main dealer.
I remember being there as an 18 year old newbie, and gawping at the newly released Honda CB900F2 in red and white.
