    Bad memories of owning one Ian?

    Anyway, this Transalp is hands down the ugliest bike I have ever owned......



    ......my brother wrote it off and replaced it with this little pocket rocket. Great bike that i kept for a good 7/8 years. Only sold to help pay for university otherwise would have kept her.

    That's not as ugly as my ex-army Armstrong MT500 was. Bastard of a bike, the renowned idling problems, weird handling and a front brake suited to a push bike. Wasn't impressed with the tall left kickstart, not that it usually wanted to start.

    This isn't mine, but it was largely similar.

    Yeah, it did. Also used by MZ and I think BMW employed a version.
