You first have to be converted and most riders have never been on a Convert to acquire the desire.
Chuck Peterson are you there.TOMB
Unless you have ridden one, it's hard to appreciate them. I often wonder why MG hasn't added one to their line.
Back in the day when they came out several were around where I live. Over the first few years there were some issues with the torque converters cracking around the center of the drive hub. Actually it was a thin stamped flywheel that got replaced with a heavy version.On right next to an EV fw.

the bike will be on the market soon
I always thought they would make a nice sidecar rig.. Good power, easy to ride..
Definitely an acquired taste, definitely a cult bike within kind of a cult brand, as has been mentioned. I'm into those kind of things. I, too am saddened that the prices for such a rare bird are so low. People put too much emphasis on the "shifting" experience as a benefit of riding a motorcycle. Off-road, road-racing yes; slow mile-eater, meh.Bought my first from a MG Club rep when I was looking for an Eldo...thought it was weird and kept wondering if/when I should shift, but I soon fell in love!The fortunate ones have had no auto-related driveline troubles, but I've lived thru them all....and continue to love the bike. People who do not wrench themselves should not consider one, because GOOD LUCK finding any person who's not a member of this board who know how to troubleshoot the unique driveline.BEST version is the Cal II Auto like Rick's and mine (his looks much nicer than mine). Longest Tonti wheelbase, you can almost fall asleep for lack of any effort to drive the thing.
I rode Tom B's, it was kind of shiftless.
"Best" relates to how the bike is used. I've ridden a fair number of both early Converts and Cal IIs (Auto and 5 spd.). Any Cal II is an unhappy pig when trying to hustle on the backroads I ride, but great out on the highway. The earlier 'Verts are much more agile and are still great out on the highway.
