I'd love this as part of my BX collection - that's if I had a BX collection of course :roll:

Found this picture of it taken in 2008. It's suffered a bit since then

12,000 miles in 5 weeks in a 34yr old bx with a suitcase 150c engine, would certainly add some more uncertaincy.

I did Cambridge to Newcastle and back in a day in my little suitcase engined BX14 a few years ago-- I think that's just shy of 600 miles. It wasn't bad actually; I think the magnificent suspension was what made it so nice! That's an easy drive up the A1 rather across many countries though. ‎
