Your oldest motorcycling thing

Recommended Posts

The oldest motorcycling related thing that I own and still use is my bungee cord, I always carry it under the seat after buying it in 2006, here it is holding a water bottle in Morocco in 2014 and a wine box in the Alentejo just a few weeks ago

What's the oldest thing motorcycle related that you use?

I've got a large, flat blade screwdriver that I bought when I was replacing the front disc pads on my RD350 (1976). I was using it to push the pistons on the caliper back in! 😂😂

My Kamasa socket set, I still use it now and nothing has ever broke .  I think it was a xmas present in 1978, I'll get a photo tomorrow if I remember.

See? Isn't that a whole lot better and way cooler than a plate you keep on a nail on your shed?

My impact driver I reckon. Bought it to use on the cross head screws on the casing of my XS250, so must have been around 1983. The XS250 was useless and dumped after a few months, the impact driver was last used this year to undo two bastards bolts that I couldn't shift any other way.

I was thinking about this today and came to the same conclusion.
I have an old Hilka impact driver I used to use on fizzys and crunchies. Gone through quite a few bits over the years but the body's still going good.

Yep, I concur.  My impact driver has got to be over 40 years old.  Luckily I find that I don't have to use it as much nowadays.
