    Sorry, it is very dirty ... has not stood still long enough since the last rains to get a decent wash, and I messed something sticky on the tank (coffee of cola?)

    As you can see, broken clock (speedo still works accurately), some dents in the tank a few small scrapes here and there,

    She still looks good man! If you need clocks I have imported brand new clocks from overseas for the cbx 250 twister. You just plug them in. R1500. If you interested or if anyone else is.
