I had a dig around in the shed because I’d been told that the entire Stinger motorbike was there I just had to find it. Well after a bit of falling over and some light swearing when I dropped a plank on my foot I found the parts.
The front part of the bike, well most of it.

The front wheel and shocks weren’t looking at their best but they are there, and you can even see the tax disk holder if you look carefully. Spurred on by this I continued searching through the boat shed and found the iconic exhausts and petrol tank from the Stinger.

Even the soft lighting from the window can’t completely hide that this motorcycle needs a lot of work. Has anyone else restored a wreck like this? How much time are we talking?


I was digging through some old albums of my dad and I found this excellent picture of him scrambling on a Matchless motorbike. Does anyone know what it is?

It looks like a 500cc bike, but I could be wrong. The engine shape is pretty distinctive, so I’d imagine someone out there will know what it is.

It might be a G85 or a G50, but the exhaust loops around to the wrong side, but my Dad may have modified it. He was pretty handy in the workshop which you can read about here.

So can anyone out there on the internet solve this mystery?
