Description

Hi and welcome to the ongoing sale of a friends over-large collection of bikes.
This one has been in dry store for the last 6 years. It seems to be largely original maybe with some performance modifications from what I'm told. Apart from that the bike doesn't seem to have ever had a total restoration. Most bits have the 'old bike patina' .
It has 23857 miles recorded but there is no proof of actual mileage. It is registered SKR 72H with a 'red' V5c in the owners name. The numbers on the engine and frame match as do the documents. The number is PC 85** B44 SS which is correct for the model.
It was last taxed in 03/03.
The condition of the bike is as follows; Good tank with no rust inside. with some paint chips and a questions over the shade of the paint.
The wheels have some pitting with the rear being slightly worse than the rear. The guards have some fogging to the front and slight pitting to the rear.  
The seat is in good condition. the speedo is the correct grey faced item but the pod is perished a little
The control levers maybe after market but I'm not sure.
The bike really needs re commissioning + a new battery but there shouldn't be much of any significance to stop it passing a test. It runs and sounds very healthy with no knocks. rumbles or obvious leaks.
There is no buy it now. payment is by cash and collection will be in person.
Any questions please ask and viewing is possible by appointment.
Thanks for looking

REVISIONS AND UPDATE
Following a number of enquiries about 'what is the extent of the work needed to get it through an M o T test';   I am now able to report that it passed an M o T test yesterday.
A brand new battery has been fitted to the bike and it has been coaxed back into life.
It runs sweetly with no strange noises and all the gears and controls work as they should. It ran a couple of miles around the local lanes yesterday without any problems. Only thing of note was that the tickover was a little slow.
I have been asked if the owner has the rear part of the chain guard which appears to be missing. Sadly no. what you see in the pics is how it is.
It must be said that there is an art to kicking it up. The owner has 35 years experience of starting old British bikes. and he has the knack he also showed that the de-compressor lever is not just for show. The British bike enthusiast of a certain age is aware of how many kick start attempts they have in them before the Local Health Trust trauma team are sent for along with their 'defibrillator'. I would suggest that with this bike you should reduce the number of available kicks available to you by at least three. If you are in negative kicks by now you really need to live on a big hill (right at the top)
Whilst the bike was being worked on it was noticed that it has the benefit of electronic ignition and an aftermarket 'remote' oil filter conversion fitted  (small disposable / spin on filter. 2CV possibly ?). The filter is located just in front of the swing arm pivot.
It still needs a bit of TLC - clean the tank out properly. change the oil and plug and grease everything. but it now has a full 12 months M o T test and fresh road tax for 12 months (free).  
Hope this helps.
