Wasn't a lot they could do really, you can't go to war to 'liberate' a nation whose population very largely side with their 'invaders' and whether...
The 150s were quite rare here because they were in a higher insurance bracket than the 125s, if you had a full licence you might as well get a 200.
Nothing like as old as Tom-B's machine, but this is my PX200, late eighties/early nineties. The paint is Rover Cadbury Silk Cut purple and was...
There were both 180s (SS & Rally) and 200s (Rally, PE & PX)
These days they're 4 stroke and go up to 300cc.
I think they're the same machine, 'Sportique' being the UK distributor's name for the VBB. Anyway, absolutely beautiful.

I need one for a no.3 myself. There's a guy on eBay currently selling whole No.3 cases which include the heatshield.
Actually contact them as opposed to just looking at what's on the website, I'll look tomorrow and see if I do have one. It'll be a steel one off a...
I'm almost certain I have one out in the backyard if that's of any help? Otherwise Green Machine Surplus is probably your best bet.
There's a Hurlock on display in the 4 Commando Museum in Ouistreham if that helps any!
I always said I'd never keep a stove that I wouldn't use, but then a Hipolito two pinter still it's box appeared at an auction. I probably won't...
