This one was another basket case, came to us as a box of bits all rusty and covered in cobwebs, certainly a labour of love, these bikes take me straight back to my youth, I couldn’t afford one back then so really enjoyed working on them now and it’s even nicer being able to jump on one now and take it for a test ride through the Welsh country lanes.

We now know these bikes inside and out having worked on so many of them. To me a Zed 9 is a thing of beauty, always will be.
