Orlando Bloom on an M20 - hardly the glamorous life of a film star! Although he did pay 7000 quid for it - any film stars need an M20?

The long artillery stand detaches so you can beat off the Nortons if they get too close when you run out of gas.

$14,000 for an M20. Glad I did'nt take up acting. I'd hate to have that kind of money laying around an waste it on an M20.


God rides a Triumph but wishes it was a Norton.

He could easily have picked one up for LESS than €4000 / $5500 over here ( western Europe )
Very strange how some people think " old " is the same thing as " gold " ...
Even stranger is that young enthousiast have to pay almost $1000 for a sad looking MOPED these days !
Not that I am a moped- enthousiast, but this surely kills off any aspiring youngster in owning some old machinery I guess.
How can they afford that ? Some restored mopeds even go as high as $5000 - more than a decent motorcycle.
I attended a motorcycle jumble last weekend ( Wieze - the biggest one in Belgium ) and was pretty chocked when seeing the asking price of some machines. Even worse: some were BOUGHT for the asking price !

Hey, the seller probably saw him coming with a pocket full of money. Give the actor credit, I admire him for his vintage choice of rides. He could have chosen an Iraq war Hum-Vee over his WWII ride. We just all wish we had his money!

I'm searching the old posts for M20s. I'm very pleased to see someone show some love for the lowly M20. I have two of them,and I have spent years accumulating every last bit for them,from the three-strap boots to '44-dated King Dick :rolleyes: Now, Mr Bloom needs to ditch that riding gear, and get a DR Mac and steel DR helmet. A slung Sten would be nice,too.
