This is Tony's X7 "WUNTUN".

I took ownership of 'DEME' in April 2000.
I obtained her as part of a swap for of all things a yellow Reliant Robin!!! Click here to read her restoration page.
PETRA FROM HOLLAND
It is from 1979 and nearly all original except for the front fender. I do have the original, but this one has better chrome.
NEIL FROM AUSTRALIA
"Greetings from Australia". This is my 79 model X7. It used to be red but I wanted a full fairing and a change in the paint job. As you can see I did both! The engine has had a full rebuild including bearings, re bore, pistons rings etc. etc. etc. I have removed the air filter box and fitted pods and lifted main jets to 95. Still cannot get it up to 100mph!! I give up every now and again and take the YZF 600R for a blast which rejuvenates me for a while so I can have another play at getting the X7 to perform.
I bought her 7 years ago. She really was in a sorry state then. Lots & lots of time and a fair bit of cash later she is not far off finished and original spec (ish). Doesn't get out that much now but I'll never sell her!!
This is Ash's X7 - Ash was going to restore another X7 but decided it was a pile of junk and not worth doing. He's going to use this one for now.
