I have a lot of experience with X7's, this picture is of my 1978 X7. It is my third restoration/modification of an X7 and is very quick!! It ran a 13:61 quarter mile at Santa Pod at 108mph. It is only slightly tuned and lightened and I have tuned the engine.....
I have now taken this X7 off the road as I am going to change it into an old race bike replica, full fairing etc in 'Barry Sheene' colours.
Hi, Just thought you would like to see these pics of my X7, I've had it for 10 years and at lot of hard work went into getting it like this. It gets more attention than my Ducati 916 when I take it out!!!
JULIAN - 'JOOLES'
I recently purchased this bike and she's beautiful. She's
called Samantha. She's had five owners from new and I am fortunate to have a
full service history with her. The mileage of 7,629 is genuine and I have
all the tax discs and MOT's for her from new. Only changes are the Allspeed
spannies and Hagon rear shocks (I have the original pipes and shocks too).
She's been restored by her previous owner from Hull called Neil Dent and I
am in possession of the history of the

1979 GT125 ec model
March 2009 - Currently under restoration
'Restored - now in red'
Pictures taken 29th April 2009
The bike is a 1979 model, there have been only 2 owners from new and has only done 10,000 miles. I owned one of these when I was 17 so it was my first choice when I decided to do my first restoration project.
It has had everything done, I have replaced all the parts I could, it has been chromed and painted, I have even sourced the original tyres from Thailand to get the bike as original as possible (although it was unmolested before I started). Hope you like, I do, This was my first project -but won't be my last!
