We need another wave of Ktalk clipboards banning the good guys then we'll be having a party here again.
I'm on a one week ban from Jub because joking with Redge I said I wanted to be a troll because it seemed to be in fashion in the mx section. Jub said "we don't allow trolls here so your banned".
It feels like I'm done there, for good this time. I just have yet to tell Jub what I think of him then it will be perm.

Wanting and being are two separate things and anyone could tell you were just having some fun. What`s wrong with Jeb? Yet he allows obvious trolls to breed.

Obviously he does. I am done there. I am less and less frequently even checking it out.

This place could be better...

Where are those other folks?

It`s a 1967 Greeves TT Special, one of 25 built.

In it`s past it was converted to a desert bike, here is the before pic.

I thought that it might have been a 67 Greeves Challenger 24MX. What was the difference between the TT and the 24MX?

Holy crap those bikes make me have a heart attacks... just leaves me speechless. History is so cool when it's not a lie.

Is that the same tank on the two pics?

And why did you paint it gay easter egg blue green? Is that the original color? I would venture you would return the bike to original color. It has I must admit a calming effect (the color) almost making the bike look like it might be a pleasure to ride.

The down pipe, the seat and Euro gas tank, color and tires were the only differences.

That is the original color for the TT bike and the original tank was not on the bike
when i bought, i got lucky and found an original tank. I will post a photo of what the original tank looked like when i bought it.

@stickman,
I wasn't joking I was having a blond moment. With M.S. I could only think of Marty Smith and it obviously wasn't him. I should have recognized Malcolm really, but I just came in from a break working in the sun. Forgive me, and thanks.

I was pretty sure you knew who it was, you just needed a little nudge. How can you not tell by that big smile of Malcolm's. If that picture is from around 1967 Marty Smith would have been about 10 years old.
