For Sale: New Imperial Model 23 150cc.
Purchased five years ago and well restored cosmetically by the previous owner. Although the bike was not running well and I soon realised the engine was not in good order. So the engine was stripped down to bring it back to good condition, I sourced a NOS standard piston so had a new cylinder liner fitted to suit. Also there was considerable wear on the big end bearing so the crankshaft assembly has been refurbished by Alpha bearings, new big and small end bearings, replacement crank pin and complete assembly trued up.
The engine is now running well and starts easily usually first kick. I have now covered around 200 miles since completion of the engine work and the bike is great fun to ride around the country lanes, I have fitted an electronic bicycle type speedo so you have some idea of speed/distance. Every works on the bike and the charging system appears good. The New Imperial Owners Club is excellent and very supportive and helpful .
V5 present and in my name and the bike is registered as "Historic" so no MOT and free Road Tax.
Located near Plymouth only 2 minutes from A38 road into Cornwall.
