    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.

    Haven't watched this thread for a while but just seen the Armstrong, right pain and being short in the leg had to start it ( try to start it) standing on the kerb. A chap at the local bike shop told me he was called out quite regularly to start them for the territorial army as they could never get them going. Sold it vowed not to have another one then another one very cheap came along with different carb but still a pig to start sold that one to a chap who came all the way down from Ayr , he couldn't start it so I had to for him then he set off ,never knew if he got home . Harley Davidson won the contract and the new bikes are 350 cc with electric start and discs. Much nicer.
