It's not a Sherpa T. It's a Lobito.

The frame number prefix will tell you what model Lobito it is.

Ah, now I did start thinking that but the owner says it's a 350. so I started to lean towards Alpina around 1973. I'm going to look today but I thought Lobido's were only 175's.

Thanks for your reply, I feel I'm getting somewhere now.

Engine number prefix will tell you what motor it is. It's not a 350 because it is a round barrel.

Lobitos are 100, 125 and 175.

Well you were 100% spot on. I saw the bike today and the number make it a Mk7 Lobito 125 1973/4 . The owner was trying to tell me it was a 350 Sherpa. I knew that wasn't right but wasn't sure what it was. Problem solved, thanks

 Right footpeg is moved back to Trials position, left one is still forward, that's special.
