sweary mick's other aermacchi

i've done more miles this past week than the whole of summer, woke up to another glorious day in derbyshire, sat in the garden with the dog's drinking tea by 0700hrs, not a breath of wind, definite autumn feel but just lovely, me and mrs b breakfast, drink tea, walk the dog's, more tea, down into belper, browse my favourite shop, the oxfam charity store, mr's b pick's up five novel's and i score four cd's and a copy of 'zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance', chippy dinner, more tea and out on the girl's bike, i lose track of how many miles i've ridden but i know i've got a sore posterior and i've filled the sporty tank four times, i dend up at sweary mick's, dinah makes me a brew and we retire to one of sweary mick's four shed's, all full of notable motorcycles, here's his new purchase, an aermacchi 350 single racer with a history you wouldn't believe, he's still finding out all about it from the record's supplied with the bike, he's got loads of spares with the machine too, seven-speed gearboxes at 3 grand a piece?, yep, two of those, a truckload of liner's, pistons, ignitions, cylinder heads and barrels, three bottom end's, spare frame and swing-arm, unreal, i blag a sit on the bike, the clip-on's are so narrow, the whole bike is light as a feather, the fairing and seat are cabon, no wonder they are so fast and just as a teaser he pull's the cover back on the 250 seeley aermacchi that dangerous is coveting badly.........
