Looks lovely

The only bike I've ever ridden that is impossible to wheelie

Probably too heavy to wheelie as they are built like a tank. I did my UK learner test on my mate's superdream as my 250T Dream broke down that day. Nice renovation!

Original tank leaked about 2 months after I sprayed it blue , got red tank and plastics off ebay and that tank started to leak aswell eventually got a tank for £25 , like new inside but paintwork was rough so I painted it to match the plastics as I wanted to keep the decals though they are not original I think they look ok, I had one back in the 80s and did manage to wheelie it a few times , but they are a bit on the heavy side

How did you manage that!! I used to redline it and dump the clutch. Front wheel never got more the two inches of the ground

Having said that I kind of liked them. They rode well and I enjoyed the weight. Made it feel like a bigger bike

Would have sold my soul for an X7 at the time

Nice restoration though
