Description

I bought this bike in the early 80's for a runabout for my wife. Except she did the running before bike was taxed & tested. So I retained bike. Familiar story?Bike has been dry stored for over 30 years. Has been started a few times in that period. Have now decided to sell so have washed. ut not polished (so as to show an "as seen" condition) bike. umped tyres. iled moving parts. cleaned carb & drained old fuel refuelled & bike runs very well.  Saddle looks original. As do cream coloured light switch. uel filler cap & petrol tap. The main stand is worn/repaired. The paint work is good but not original. Has some scratching on rear mudguard (Zoom on Pic 3 & 11). Tyres look OK. rims show signs of pitting. Handlebar has been taped with black tape so probably shows signs of rust underneath? Pedals do not match -see photos. Sale includes original buff logbook (registered in Dorset) plus 2 MOT certs. from 1975 & 1980. Plus a fail from 1976 (Tyres). Mileage shown as 2272 but no idea if this is true. HoweverMOT 1975 - not shownFail 1976 - 2083 milesMOT 1980 - 2103So by my reckoning that's 169 miles in last 33+ years. No current MOT or taxI've put a reserve on this bike as a minimum of it's true value but only bidders will determine that. Good luck & thanksPayment by Paypal only please in full before collection.
