The Micron expansion exhaust pipes were also added.

My mate put a set of expansion chambers in his as soon as he bought it new. He found the original pipes in his dads loft last year , as new, and sold them on eBay for more than what he paid for the bike.

I had a bit of time with  a H1. Period fuel figures quoted around 28mpg, but 13 was easily achievable. They were pretty extreme for the time.

How old was your kwak ??

Some of my mates had the older S1a, b & c's

I loved the triple sound, there was nothing else like it.

I cant remember, the photo is around 1980 and I wouldn't have paid a lot for the bike second hand so probably early to mid seventies.

Yes great sound, once it was tuned and revved off the clock!

I think I traded in my original standard exhaust pipes for something or other which I was prone to do at the time.:laugh:

Once tuned I used to get  over a ton on the flat.

 

Nobody had a go at getting the car?  Hillman Imp, never did get it running properly.:laugh:

Sorry, I spotted it. I have many memories of them, all bad. :laughing2dw:

I do remember the parcel shelf thing behind the rear seats was large enough to take a full size cello.

I did, but as my guess was an Alfa it's a good job I didn't post it and make a complete fool of myself. :whistle:

Because I play the violin, and my friend plays the Cello, and her dad had a Hillman Imp. :thumbsup:
