This is for sale, because it's very uncomfortable and heavy and I'm a short-arse. Of the bikes I'm selling it's one of two that tugs at my heart a bit.

It was rescued by me and my wife from its sleep in a garage in Aberdeen after its third owner passed away. A trusted member of DOCGB was tasked with selling it on behalf of the owner's widow after their local bike dealer had offered her a miserly sum for it and he'd been asked if she was ripping them off...

The member is a very good man, and arranged the sale. The bike had been delisted by DVLA on account of it having been laid up and there was a mix up with the VRM / VIN that dated back to the original sale of the bike...

I was initially not successful in buying it as I knew it needed a few thousand spending at best, and if the (non running) engine was toast then there'd be a few thousand more on top as a bevel rebuild is a sit-down job when you get your bill.

I bid my maximum but someone outbid me... job over. Well, not quite. The original buyer was concerned about the DVLA thing, so I got another shot and after increasing my bid it was mine.

Fortunately the bike was given a clean bill of health but still had all the vital bits fettled and daft things like brake / fuel lines were replaced with the right bits to make good. All original bits are kept, including the Conti silencers. The front pipes and balance pipe are Conti but the silencers were replaced with stainless Keihin jobs. They look great.

The recommissioning was done by Phil Worth at Italia with parts supplied by Mdina and the bill made me cry... a lot.

It's not restored, it's recommissioned and there are not many three-owner and highly original MHRs out there that are not restored.

It's a lovely and very original bike that rides well, isn't a slouch either... I was told we cracked 125mph on a run back from Cadwell, I was too busy trying to keep on the grey bit between the green bits to say whether that's right or not.

Haven't a clue how many MPG it does... if that's a question then it's the wrong bike for the person asking it. Its serviced about every 500 miles since it's been on the road as I cannot afford £10k for an engine rebuild...
