Help Identifying My First Bike
« on: March 27, 2021, 02:30:28 PM »
Hi all, this is me on my first bike, taken late 1980 or 81 but of course the bike was bought used so I've no idea how old it was at the time. I can't remember the make or model although I'm pretty sure it was an 80cc? I only used it for a few months as I kept on borrowing my dad's RS100 which of course was a lot cooler and more importantly faster, we ended up swapping over - thanks Dad :)

Any help identifying it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Paul

Probably a pretty good suggestion.
That cylindrical device just behind/above the cylinder is the clincher,
that wouldn't occur on too many models ..

This is said to be a 1971
