1966 FL1200 - better known as the Shovel Genny, only made for 3 years and this is an early one from first year of manufacture. It is on a D registration.

This bike was imported in 1988, then bought by second owner in 1989, I bought from him last year. There is a good record of MOTs and service receipts going back over the years so it has been regularly used and from MOT paperwork the mileage since 1992 is 25,500 miles. It must have had a new speedo fitted then as the previous MOT had the mileage at 32k, so total 57k?, hard to say with a bike this age.

The bike starts on the button and runs well, I have a video of start up and if anyone wants to see it just e mail.

I have had it out a few times this year and it runs well, gear changes OK and brakes work not too bad. The front brake is not great, but it is exactly same as my other Shovel. Anyway, they passed the MOT OK.

It does not leak oil - well, maybe the odd drop - but if it has been sitting a while and started up it does produce a little puddle, so it must wet sump and blow it out a breather. Other than that I have not had any problems and not had to top up the oil yet.

Everything works, and I fitted indicators last month, cars barely see bikes at the best of time so I feel that expecting them to notice hand signals is wishful thinking.

It is a good clean bike, it is not a show bike but it has been looked after.

I think the clutch is slipping a bit, but it is only noticeable in top gear - plates are pretty easy to get hold of, but it is fine just now. The push/pull throttle cable take a bit of getting used to, you have to push to shut the revs, but easy enough when you get used to it.

It is situated in Scotland North of Dundee, and welcome any viewings. As I mentioned above I do have a video, but my computer skills are limited to the extent I can e mail to anyone that wants it but have no idea how to upload it to an internet site.
