A RARE THING. AS ONLY A FEW THOUSAND WERE EVER MADE WORLDWIDE OVER 40 YEARS AGO. IN THIS RARE COLOUR WITH THE FLOWERY SEAT. IT TOOK ME YEARS TO FIND THIS GENUINE ORIGINAL HISTORIC LADY DAX IN THIS ORIGINAL UNMOLESTED CONDITION WITH LOW MILES. THE ORIGINAL TOOL KIT. OWNERS MANUAL. DOCS. OLD TAX DISCS AND A KEY THAT FITTED ALL THE LOCKS. IT ALSO CAME WITH THE ORIGINAL CHROME BACK RACK. AND WHITE 70'S MATCHING BACK BOX WITH A KEY TO LOCK IT AND THE ORIGINAL WHITE HANDLE BAR MIRRORS. AND THEY ARE ALL PART OF THIS SALE.

 

A BIT OF HISTORY

I HAVE OWNED THE BIKE A FEW YEARS NOW AND WHEN I GOT IT HAD BEEN SITTING IN A HEATED BEDROOM SINCE 1978. IT WAS MADE IN 1972 AND WAS BOUGHT BY A CHAP FOR HIS 17 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER TO GO TO COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY ON. AND WAS LEFT IN HER BEDROOM WHEN SHE LEFT HOME SOME SIX YEARS LATER IN 1978. AND THAT'S WERE IT STAYED. 1978 WAS THE LAST TIME IT WAS TAXED UNTIL I BOUGHT IT IN 2011. IT HAS HAD ONE FAMILY OWNER FROM NEW. THE GIRL. THE DAD. HER BROTHER WHEN THE DAD DIED AND ME. SO FOUR OWNERS IN TOTAL.  

WHEN I BOUGHT IT THE BIKE HAD BEEN DRY STORED AND NOT RUN OR USED FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS SO I GIVE IT A QUICK SERVICE CHANGED THE OIL CLEANED THE AIR FILTER AND PUT SOME NEW PETROL WITH   4 STAR ADDITIVE IN THE TANK AND KICKED IT OVER. AFTER FIVE OR SIX KICKS IT FIRED UP I TRIED IT UP THE GROVE WERE I LIVE AND ALL GEARS. BRAKES. LIGHTS. HORN ETC WORKED FINE. I BOUGHT A NEW 6V BATTERY AND BOOKED IT IN FOR AN MOT. IT FLEW THOUGHT THE MOT JUST NEEDED AN ADJUSTMENT TO THE BACK BRAKE. SO THAT WAS IT. A SMALL BACK BRAKE ADJUSTMENT I HAD AN ORIGINAL UNMOLESTED CLASSIC 1970'S HONDA LADY DAX READY FOR THE ROAD.

I WENT TO THE TAX OFFICE TO GET MY FREE TAX. BUT THEY SAID AS THE BIKE WAS REGISTERED AFTER 31ST OF JAN 1973 SO IT WAS NOT EXEMPT. THAT WAS THE LAW AT THE TIME. SO THEY REFUSED ME FREE TAX. I EXPLAINED TO THE CLARKE THAT IT WAS MADE IN 1972 AND SO WAS TAX EXEMPT AS ITS NOT THE DATE OF REGISTRATION BUT THE DATE OF PRODUCTION THAT DETERMINES ITS TAX EXCEPTION. AND THAT I HAD AN AUTHENTICITY LETTER FROM THE VANTAGE JAPANESE MOTORCYCLE CLUB WITH THE BIKES ENGINE AND FRAME NUMBERS ON IT STATING THE DATE IT WAS MADE IN 1972 AND SO WAS EXEMPT. THEY RELENTED STAMPED THE LETTER OF  AUTHENTICITY AND GAVE THE BIKE TAX EXEMPTION.   

                 (I ASKED THEM TO POST MY FREE TAX DISC. JUST SO THE DVLA HAD TO PAY TO SEND ME A FREE DISC)

I USED THE BIKE FOR A COUPLE OF TRIPS TO THE SHOPS ON DRY DAYS THAT YEAR AND ONLY DID 16 MILES IN TOTAL AND FROM THEN IT'S JUST SAT IN MY HALLWAY WITH A COVER OVER IT. I DO START IT NOW AND THEN JUST TO KEEP GOING AND STARTED IT YESTERDAY READY FOR THIS SALE IT STARTS AND RUNS WELL.

TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE PHOTOS AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT GOOD UNMOLESTED CONDITION IT STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL SAFETY STICKERS. CABLE ORIGINAL TIES ON THE HANDLE BARS AND PLASTIC PROTECTION COVER HAS NEVER BEEN REMOVED FROM THE CHROME STRIP BETWEEN THE SEAT AND HANDLE BARS. THE BACK BRAKE PEDDLE STILL HAS ITS PLASTIC COVER ON. THE TOOL KIT IN                                      ITS CASE IS STILL UNDER THE  ORIGINAL FLOWERY SEAT AND THE WHITE UNDER THE SEAT IS GREASE                                                                                (LOOKS LIKE OVER SPRAY BUT IS WHITE PROTECTION GREASE) 

 THE BATTERY COVER IS STILL IN PLACE. AS IS THE ORIGINAL PETROL CAP. NONE OF THE SCREWS OR BOLTS HAVE BEEN CHANGED ETC. I COULD GO ON BUT JUST LOOK AT THE PHOTOS IT WAS THE MOST OR UNMOLESTED LADY DAX I COULD FIND TO BUY WHEN I WAS LOOKING.

THE BIKE IS OVER 44 YEARS OLD NOW. AND WITH LOW MILES AND IN THIS UNMOLESTED CONDITION THERE GETTING HARD TO FIND. THE   BIKE HAS NO MOT BUT HAS ONLY DONE 16 MILES SINCE ITS LAST ONE SO SHOULD PASS NO PROBLEM AT ALL. THIS IS A GENUINE UNMOLESTED LADY DAX WITH A GENUINE KEY THAT FITS ALL LOCKS. IGNITION. STEERING LOCK AND  HELMET HOLDER                                                                                                                      

I HAVE OLD TAX DISCS. ORIGINAL OWNERS MANUAL. PART OLD LOG BOOK AND NEW V5. TOOL KIT.  ORIGINAL CHROME  BACK RACK. WHITE 70'S BACK BOX WITH KEY. WHITE HANDLE BAR MIRRORS AND THE LETTER FROM THE VANTAGE MOTORCYCLE CLUB USED AT THE DVLA TO CONFIRM  ITS A GENUINE 1972 HISTORIC UNMOLESTED WHITE  HONDA DAX
