Bought new 1983. One owner.

•Shock absorbers – never used. Now refitted as new.
•Petrol Tank – never used. Now refitted as new.
•Added heavy duty chain and sprockets.
•H-duty fork springs (got originals)
•Reinforced sump guard
•Reshaped exhaust to accommodate gas-assisted shocks (now discarded)

Rode from UK across Europe and down through Africa to Botswana 1982-1984. A trusty and reliable ride on the adventure of a lifetime.
Brought back to UK and stayed in a barn for many years.
Allowed experienced enthusiast to work on it: Piston rings rusted to liner, professionally bored to size and honed. New gaskets. Headworks and valves stripped and cleaned and reassembled. Never finished refurb and reassembly.

Still much fun to give but sadly I will never now have time to restore and repair. Will need work on it to get it going again, including new tyres, tubes, chain and exhaust tail. Cables and wiring loom need putting back.

What you get: (see photos)
Comes with lots of original spares, Haynes Manual (battered), shocks and tank as new (see history).

Where : Based in Midlands.
