UPDATE (29/09/14) : The purchase of our new house has now moved nearer to completion and as such I need to sell my baby in the next 7 days. It's fantastic that there's quite a few of you watching this but in order to meet the demanding deadlines of buying a house I'm going to need to change this listing to an auction if I dont receive an offer/expression of interest within the next 24 hours). Sorry guys. best of luck and thanks so much for looking!Please call me on +44 (0)7771 836 328 if you want to discussRegrettably. I'm selling my Cafe Racer. I bought this beauty in Apr 2012 as my first road bike and subsequently commuted to and from Soho in Central London for around 10 months. I've enjoyed every minute of riding this bike. and it clears 100mph just like any ton-up bike should! The bike is a real head-turner - so much so that it's even more of a buzz riding it. I was shocked at how many people would stop and stare. and I've even had a few encounters where people have taken photos. The rumble of the V-Twin makes it impossible to ignore and the cafe-racer bars drop you into a classic racing position. Having said that. I found it comfortable enough to commute on. unlike a normal sports bike. In terms of boring bits. the bike is 30 years old so it could do with a bit of love and affection. but it's an amazing runner. I've personally added shorter. stubby silencers and a new battery (now around 15 months old). There's a tiny dent on the petrol tank but it all adds to its classic. rough-round-the-edges charm. The bike is currently SORN and will need MOT and Tax so you'll need a van or trailer to pick up. I bought it for £3. 00 so please bear this in mind. no time-wasters please. I'm only selling the bike to help fund moving house (also a bit of pressure now that I'm a dad of two to be more responsible!)Cash on collection. I'll also be listing my leather jacket and boots but happy to include for the right offer. contact me for more details
