This is re advertised after someone viewed the bike at the start of April ,they left a deposit on condition they could pay for it at the end of April.This has come and gone with the buyer asking for another two weeks to pay .Unfortunately this has passed and he cannot raise the balance,so I have run out of listening to promises.also I have had to cancel plans I had made with the money from the sale of the bike,this costing me money.
The bike was completely restored some time ago as can be seen from the photos,before and after and has covered less than 400 miles,during this time new steel front and rear mudguards were fitted.
I bought this bike as it was the same model as my first bike over 60 years ago,bringing back happy memories.However the whole family were shocked when I said I was going to ride it on the road after so many years not riding a bike,so I have sadly bowed to pressure for a quiet life.It would be a shame for it to just sit in my garage and be polished when someone could enjoy riding it.I`ve agreed with my family when and if this bike sells I will buy another project to restore and sell on.I have had to cancel plans to buy a restoration project twice now due to being let down,so I will wait until this sells before I go ahead with another one. I found when running the bike the dynamo wasn`t charging as it should so I have had it rebuilt by Rutland Dynamos .After fitting it I replaced the old contact type voltage control and fitted a solid state system ,also though I was told the battery was new,it failed to hold its charge so I`ve fitted a brand new one.Total cost £240
The price is firm and if it fails to reach it I am happy to keep the bike as an investment and have something to polish and admire, I can also tell the family I tried to sell it.
The chance of buying a GTP is very rare with one hardly ever coming on sale and to see one in this superb condition is even rarer
PLEASE IF YOU DON`T HAVE THE MONEY DON`T BID,I HAVE WASTED NEARLY 8 WEEKS SO FAR.I`VE HAD TO CANCEL PLANS COSTING MONEY.
