An early UK specification bike that has been in our family since new. Its registration document shows that it was first registered in the UK in November 1978. It's early chassis and frame number is 2613. One of the first models sold in the UK, having been ordered before it was shipped to the UK. Therefore a very rare original specification model that inspired all the variant models that came after.
It is completely original with only the consumables, some rubber-ware and a few nuts & bolts etc. replaced during refurbishment. All the old parts have been kept and will be sold with the bike, along with manuals, original paperwork and sundries.
The tyres have legal tread, but you may wish to replace the old rubber if serious use is intended.
This is not a perfect bike but you'll value the originality and are unlikely to find another in this original condition.
It is registered as a historic vehicle and ready to go. It needs to be moved on so that I can start a new project.
The pictures really do not do this bike justice. I have a video that I can send to you showing the bike on tickover and up close.
Please take a look and then contact me or simply make me an offer.
