Description

UP FOR SALE IS MY BRITISH REGISTERED ICONIC JOTA THIS IS NOT AN COPY ITS THE REAL THING. I HAVE CHECKED THE NUMBERS WITH SLATERS OVER THE PHONE. AS USAUL THE COLOUR HAS BEEN CHANGE SHOULD BE BLACK FRAME AND GOLD TANK. I BOUGHT THIS BIKE BECAUSE I FANCIED A CHANGE FROM BRITISH BIKES BUT HAVE FOUND ITS NOT FOR ME. I AM OFFERING THE BIKE AT LESS THAN I PAID NOT COUNTING WHAT I HAVE BOUGHT FOR IT. I BOUGHT IT FROM A FRIEND AS HE WAS DOWN SIZING HIS HOUSE AND HAD NO PLACE TO STORE THE BIKE OR HE WOULD NOT HAVE SOLD LETS GET DOWN TO WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW. THE BIKE IS BEING SOLD AS A RESTORATION PROJECT AND AS A NON RUNNER AS I CANNOT GET IT TO START (AN OTHER CAN). I HAVE HEARD THE BIKE RUNNING ON 2 OCCASIONS WHEN IT WAS IN BEING CHECKED OVER BY KIETH NAIRN AT LAVERDA SCOZIA  KIETH OVERHAULED THE CARBS AND BALANCED THEM ON THE BIKE FOR ME. THE ENGINE SOUNDED VERY GOOD. NO APPARENT NOISYS OR CLUNKS THAT YOU WOULD ASSOCIATE WITRH A PROBLEM. COMPRESSION WAS 195 ON ALL CYLINDERS. I HAVE TRIED A COUPLE OF TIMES SINCE THEN TO START IT BUT I CANNOT. THE BATTERY I HAVE IT NOT THE BEST. INFACT WELL PAST ITS BEST. THE BRAKE CALIPERS AND CYLINDERS HAVE ALL BEEN OVERHAULED WITH NEW SEALS . NEW PADS IN THE FRONT AS THAT WAS ALL THE PADS HE HAD FOR SALE ON THE DAY. REAR PADS ARE USED BUT OK. THE FRONT MASTER CYLINDER IS A AP RACING ALLOY BODIED FROM THE LATE SEVENTIES. WHEELS HAVE BEEN TAKEN BACK TO BARE ALLOY WHICH I THINK LOOKS GREAT. EVERYTHING SEEMS TO WORK OK ON THE ELECTRIC SIDE INCLUDING BRAKE LIGHTS ECT.  AS YOU MAY HAVE GAINED I DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT THIS TYPE OF BIKE EXCEPT ITS THE BEST LOOKING BIKE IN THE GARAGE. PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTION AND I TRY TO ANSWER AS HONEST AS I CAN. PS THE BIKE WAS RUN WITHOUT THE FILTER ASSEMBLY FITTED. IT MAY BE PART OF THE PROBLEM????PLEASE DO NOT PHONE KIETH ASKING ABOUT THE BIKE AS HE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SALE THANKS. I CAN BE CONTACTED ON 07703358217 PLEASE BE REASONABLE WITH THE TIMES AS I WORK.
