The "bloater" is a 2nd gen Ford Tempo.
The 2 wheeled "grimness" is a rare Zündapp KS50 Super SL, which is actually quite spiffy when unmolested:

Could you please enquire how much it is including postage to Stockport?

Well, and the Chrysler Stratus LX is just that - a Chrysler Stratus LX.


Are you near a Septic air base?

In its day the KS 50 was more competent than anything we had in the UK.

It was more competent than anything they had elsewhere. It simply was the Queen of all 50s.

You should probably have put this thread in the motoring section, but I doubt anyone cares all that much.

I agree with the above re. the Zündapp KS50 btw, they're an ace little bike.
On the road:
1998 Disco 4.0 V8 (manual)
1986 Honda CBX750F

Running but need fettling:
1994 Vauxhall Calibra 3.0 V6
1991 Maserati 222 SE
1990 Yamaha XJ900F
1982 Suzuki GSX1100SZ Katana

If a mod wants to move it I have no problem with that.

Ford Tempo? none the wiser but thanks for identifying

I'll ask my mate next time he's in the area to make inquiries about the bike

Never even heard of a Chrysler Stratus LX or otherwise - was it a euro only model?

As this part of the island is approx 10 miles from Turkey I doubt there are any septics within 500 miles

Turkey has oil reserves, of course the septics aren't far away.

Unless they murder you with a car, in which case they are very far away indeed.
