We have been unable to confirm this mileage reading. Please disregard it.
The single most important purchase for a classic restoration project is the bike to restore, whether it's going to be a commercial venture or just a hobby interest it all starts here!
PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES........ As you can see this bike appears to be complete but we did note a few areas that could us some work; Scuffs down lower right hand panel (can be seen on pictures), Scrape On left hand side of tank and rear cowl and a crack in the front fairing. Please ask for close up images if required.
BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS......... The wheels are straight and clean, good discs, calipers and working brakes. The forks and yokes look straight with good chrome. The tail light assy is good as is the headlight. Instruments and switches look ok. The carburettors are free sliding off the twist grip. The paintwork is slightly faded but solid, fuel tank is squeaky clean inside. The seat base is in good condition throughout, there is a tear in the passenger seat cover. The indicators are tidy in general but the front left stem seems slighty bent. The chain guard is tidy. Both mud guards are solid. The Carbon exhaust is solid. The engine is cosmetically clean. BUT BEST OF ALL when we hooked it up to a good battery, fed it some fresh fuel and gave it a prod, it starts, runs and revs.
This is only a very brief description….If you require any further information please give us a call or better still visit our showroom and have a good look over this bike & all the others we have on eBay for yourself – after all who are you going to believe me or your own eyes?
