Hoping to be made an offer I can't refuse, but need to shift a couple of bikes. If anybody is interested please pm for details.

Mike.

This is for sale now as I have taken up the offer I could not refuse!

I need to clean it and service it, including the belt change. Got a bit wet last Sunday on a 330 mile ride.

Bought as a rebuild project. Stripped and frame powder coated. Was sprayed, but tank leaked on one corner. I have a spare, 'original paint' tank for the bike. New fork stanchions.

Engine from an Excalibur. Wiring is Excalibur. Bosch halogen headlight. Drum has new shoes and was skimmed as was oval. No electric start as wanted it like a 70s bike. Starts readily on the kick start. Has the Kokusan ignition and alternator. Has alloy wheel rims. Excalibur white face instruments.

Good tyres and tubes. MoT for 11.5 months.

Not a stunning all expense spared restoration, but a good, useable, working bike.

Offers over £3,000. Located in North Yorkshire. PM for more details, photos etc.

p.s. still got my Sport, so not Morini-less.

Sorry, the Strada was called back into action until mid July...

On the ramp being cleaned and serviced. Clutch cable broke on its last ride in July, so replaced. Also Speedo drive fixed with NOS unobtanium that was obtained!

Tax and MoT exempt.

Rack removed. Mirrors changed.

Are you sure about the MoT exemption? Have they finalised the guidance on "substantial change" for a motorcycle VHI yet? TBF - it appears to be 'self certificated' ;)
