Imminent redundancy forces sale of my cafe racer project. I bought the bike about 6 months ago with every intention of stripping and rebuilding to my favorite style of bike. an archetypal cafe racer. Unfortunately the fates have conspired and I am about to lose my job as of the end of this month so needs must!Not much to say about the bike. it's a 1982 FB. mileage unknown. I was told it did start and run before the previous owner stripped it. I've pushed it in 4th with the plugs out and it doesn't make any nasty noises.  I was also told it only had 18k on the clock. but as I don't have the clocks I can't verify that! I was told it was 95% complete. it's not. apart from missing the aforementioned clocks the basic wiring is there but it will need a lot doing. the exhaust has been butchered but I do have a spare from an earlier 750 which although rusty will fit. I also have a bag of odds and sods including tank badges. another set of rear shock. indicators and general 'stuff'. I don't have a V5. but the frame and engine numbers match and I have a nice letter from Honda GB which confirms year of manufacture so there will be no issues getting an age related plate. I ran the frame number through an HPI check and got nothing untoward back.  So there you have it. a solid. 30-odd year old Honda which has lots of potential. A great Winter project for someone with the time and funds. You are welcome to come and view it. I am in Livingston. about 15 miles west of Edinburgh. E-mail paul_wilkes77@hotmail. com to arrange. Usual stuff. you are bidding to buy. not haggle. you can bid from overseas. but you will need to arrange your own collection. not interested in px or swaps. I've tried to be as honest as possible. please show me the same courtesy.
