This bike is in exceptional condition for its age and is faultless. It
had a new back tyre less than 1,000 miles ago, and new front about
2,000 miles ago. Chain and sprockets were changed around 8,000 miles
ago. It had a new battery last year.
I have a documented service history (although the book is not stamped).
The bike starts instantly and runs smoothly with no hesitation. This
bike is as happy burbling round the back roads as it is sitting at 80
mph on the motorway. The clutch and gearchange are perfect. New brake
pads were fitted recently. The MoT (no advisories) is valid until June
The paintwork is in beautiful condition with no scratches, chips or
scrapes, although there are a couple of minor scuffs on the bar ends /
handguards where they've caught a wall or similar. There is no rust /
furry alloy or rounded fasteners The original handbook and toolkit are
all present and correct. The bike is fitted with a centre stand, Givi /
Kappa top box and panniers, fork brace, crash bungs, bar risers and
footrest lowering plates making it a superb touring machine. It also
has a reprofiled seat for comfort on those long trips - I will include
the original as well. I would have no hesitation in setting out for a
long tour on it tomorrow.
