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
