What is the general opinion of these bikes? I know they're not truly unit engines. Are they difficult to maintain? I imagine parts are more sparse than for my Triumph T100S, but the jampot groups seem to have parts available for some models.
Thye've been a bit unloved in the past, from a 'historic' perspective, though seem to becoming more popular now Prices are very reasonable and psares seem readily obtainable for the 250 and 350 -I was recently offered a 350 in pieces in a box and said yes, so did some research. the bike has never materialised, but you never know.
My father had one as a rebuild prospect 25 years ago, though it went on its way with nothing done other than getting it running, which it seemed to do quite well - they are lighter and the engine design is somewhat more forward thinking..
