Hello Riders!

Hi all Folder Riders and especially you R20 Riders!

decided i'd join after a few months of lurking through the forum at riders advice on the r20.

So what got me into the R20? Well when I was doing up a Triumph Traffic Master I came accross the legendary Sheldon Brown's website and saw his folder and from that plenty of more.

And my luck came through back in december when I rode upto a kissing gate and saw 3 chavs tackling their bikes through it. When the last one got through I spotted it was an R20 in bad condition and couldn't let them bike being ruined no more. So I asked him how much for the bike and he said a fiver, which i happily said yep too. He even rode it back to my house which was a bonus. Here's the pic of the poor R20



I've just got my first part a UN-72 BB so hopefully now it will get kick my butt into gear and start working on it
