Only 1, 235 miles covered prior to the restoration (original speedo is present to warrant this) and only 2 miles covered since.
Having had a thorough nut and bolt refresh to the highest of standards, using either fully refreshed parts or new old stock replacements at great cost, we are sure this is one of the best examples available and is ready for the discerning collector or somebody looking to relive there youth with a smile.
Having covered only 1, 235 miles from new, this example ending up laying dorment for a long period of time.
Since then, this example has had a full nut and bolt rebuild to the show standard that you see here.
Absolutely superb condition across the board, top to bottom.
Body & Paintwork
As can clearly be seen by the pictures, the frame and bodywork are in great order.
A nice deep gloss finish is present across the frame work and panels, with badges being in superb condition.
The bike has had a no expense spared nut & bolt refresh, with some new old stock items having been used to make it simply the best.
Originally Silver, this example has been finished in Black and the finish is simply superb.
All bodywork is without damage, and all lights could pass as being near.
The chrome is all beautiful, with none of the usual ‘patina’ often seen on such bikes.
A truly beautiful example ready for any discerning collector.
Interior & Trim
As with the rest of the bike, all trims are of course in very good condition.
Handle bar grips, foot pegs, mirrors, switch gears are all superb.
None of the usual marks or scuffs to the grips, or indeed the mirrors, this example really is among the best and not an ‘average’ example dressed up as a ‘show bike’.
Famed for its reliability, this example has benefited from a refresh as part of the overhaul and runs exactly as you would expect.
Starting with ease, and running smoothly from start up, the gears are a pleasure to operate and the bike rides great.
Exactly what it says on the tin.
Of course the running gear is all in superb condition, having had all parts overhauled.
The brakes work perfectly, and as mentioned previously, the gears are a joy to operate. The bike also benefits from new tyres both front and rear.
With the condition being as superb as it is, we imagine this example will become part of a collection, and be enjoyed for its condition and rarity, rather than the riding experience – however, we can confirm that it rides great, and certainly puts a big smile across the face.
