Hi all, Iíve been a club member for a few years and Iíve enjoyed looking at the various posts but never got round to putting anything on myself.
I have a Vdue 500EF which I bought new in November 2015 from Signature Moto in Norwich. At the time I bought it I was told it was the last new one that Piero had, itís frame number 417 with engine ending 559.

Iíve done about 900 miles on it now and Iíve really enjoyed it, I live in Glasgow and had a few good weekend runs up north with an Italian bike group Iím in.

Lockdown has allowed me to get a few of my bikes sorted out so I need a new battery for the Vdue as - usual problem - itís now a dud with it sitting.

Can anyone recommend somewhere who knows a bit about the Vdueís and could set up the carbs etc.

Might be interested in selling it later in the year as Iím moving house next year and need to reduce numbers, want to do a few more miles on it first though!

Anyone else around in Glasgow/Scotland??

Cheers, Colin

Hi Colin - Not Glasgow, but over in West Lothian. I haven't got a V-due, but would love one, one day.

Mike

Lovely pics Colin, - The office I'm normally based at is in Livingston, though, I've been WFH for the last few months, and likely to be doing so for quite some time.

We should get together, I'd love to hear that V-due run. Here's a couple of pics of mine..

You can post the direct link for each photo and the photoís will appear..... Itís a bit of mucking about to be honest.
