That four speed manual is not real common but also not rare, it typically was mated to a 6 cylinder.
Yes, my bike is a 57 BSA M21

I am currently driving 2012 Jeep Cherokee Summit in red color.The aerodynamic and innovative design of the jeep helps it stand out among other concept jeeps. Looks simple but nice jeep. Love it!

I have a 1983 GMC Jimmy 4X4 with a 6.2L diesel. It has over 579,000 miles on it now and I was hoping for a million but I'm retired now and don't drive it much anymore.

I love the simple things. It has crank windows but the tailgate window is power. I do have AC and a nice sound system. Fuel mileage isn't as good with this new diesel as with the old sulphur diesel. Was 24 MPG now 17.8 MPG. I can't understand how improving things results in it being worse.

The oil companies want you to burn more fuel not less

It's funny you can drive a car in Europe that gets 78 MPG and runs like a bat out of hell but here they can't be imported.

They also make the engine for a BMW here that makes that fuel economy, but they send it to Europe. Can't use it here.

I retired last May and relocated to warmer weather where this could be my daily driver.
