We have been unable to confirm this mileage reading. Please disregard it. The single most important purchase for a classic restoration project is the bike to restore, whether it's going to be a commercial venture or just a hobby interest it all starts here!. PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES........As you can see this bike is nearly complete missing just the rear indicators & mirrors. It has stood a while, so the battery is flat, tyres are perished, master cylinder is not working & tank is very mucky inside. Sadly, whatever can go rusty has done so to some extent. BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS.........The wheels look straight, front has a nice clean alloy rim, but rear is a bit anodised. Brake plate, disc & caliper look good. Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome & clean alloy. Mudguards are both solid but pitted. Taillight assy is good as are the headlight & hangers. Instruments look ok but tacho face is slight mis-shapen. Paintwork is solid, fuel tank is very mucky/rusty inside and has been leaking from the rear corners. Seat is in good condition throughout & hides a rodent nest in the tool tray. Chain guard is tidy. The engine turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels ok but the r/h cylinder is very low on compression - We have had it firing on the l/h cylinder with easystart spray but not running.
