‘I FOUND MY OLD AR!’
Twenty seven years after he sold the AR on which he ended up in hospital for six weeks, Phil Holme found it, re-acquired it and is now planning to restore it.
“Back in 1985 I modified it with a 93cc big bore kit, 80cc carb, Micron and S&B air filter. It was capable of 65mph, wheelieing across the school playground and beating every Fizzy and AP50 around, at least until a Vauxhall Chevette ran into me.”
Now re-united, the AR still has the Micron and Phil’s DIY paintjob and is due a resto. Handily, he’s the perfect man for the job. “I have my own business restoring bikes and oddly enough am known for AR50S.” Better get on with it then.
Three decades later and it still has the same homemade paintjob
