    Yamaha RD250 A running riding resto/project bike 1975 Before we start, no this bike is not mint/restored etc. It arrived with us partially dismantled and with no paint work so we set about putting it back as you now see it and instead of doing our usual thing and going the whole hog, offering it as a cheaper alternative for someone to get the chance to either just use it as is, or as an excellent starting point to restore. The paintwork is not nice, which is why it was previously removed from another bike, definitely a home brew job as petrol removes the top coat if not careful. The front forks were corroded as normal so have had new stanchions and seals. The front and rear guards appear to be originals which are made of “unobtanium” nowadays, both are solid with good chrome, with the front having some dents. Exhausts have both had a weld near to where they meet the down pipe but otherwise are presentable. The motor starts easily, has “K and N style filters” and is still running the autolube system, the clutch and gearbox are good. Brakes wise a previous owner has fitted a new master cylinder and braided hose to the front […] £3,395

      Suzuki GT500 1977 This great “survivor” example of a 1977 Suzuki GT500 came to us as a potential restoration project, but on arrival we realised it was just to original to start taking it apart and set about “reviving” it instead, while keeping it original where possible. Imported from the States in 2019 (that’s what probably saved it, being out there for so long) it does have some signs of age to the chrome parts,the worse bit being between the fork legs on the mudguard, but it’s still solid and ultimately repairable if you did want to take the bike to show levels. There are a couple of chips to the paintwork, mainly on the tank, the rest shines up nicely. Engine wise that big old 500cc 2 stroke twin fires up first kick most of the time and pulls well on the road, gearbox clutch, brakes etc all function correctly and a new chain has just been fitted. Tires are ok but are a bit old so at the asking price will be changed. GT500’s back in the day, were looked on as the poor alternative to the triples and as such were used and abused, then thrown away, now you just […] £5,495

        Yamaha FZ750 Genesis “Very nice” 1989 Just in from Europe is this very pretty and good condition 1989 FZ750. Looking to be a very original bike, its paintwork has survived very well, past the odd chip/mark here and there and some slight crazing to the yellow stripe on the tank, hardly noticeable though. What is noticeable, once pointed out, is the extra “carbon fibre” look tape each side orf the fairing cowl, not having removed it would take a guess that here will be some cracking round the fairing bolt holes where it meets the fairing sides, common to find on early bodywork such as this, not that it detracts from the bikes looks but it is there, along with the very rare original seat cowl!! The engine is excellent, starts first time and is very quiet, pulling very well for a bike of this age (damn these were good bikes, why Yamaha never sold more of them, only him upstairs knows!!) gearbox and clutch are slick, brakes etc are all very good. The speedo is showing very low miles but don’t think its the original, its a European model with an American 55MPH marked MPH clock so has been changed at some point you would […] £3,595

          Suzuki GSX750E 1980 Imported from Italy in March 1997, then bought by its only owner in August of the same year, this very nice Suzuki GSX750E has had an easy life since, spending more of its time in a garage having bits done and being polished, than actually being ridden. Its last owner tells us that he hardly rode it at all in the last nine years, just getting it out on the road for the odd occasion, last MOTs were done in 2013 then 2018. He has however in that time, fitted stainless braided hoses to the brakes front and rear, a 4×1 Jama exhaust system, upgraded the ignition with new coils and leads, fitted a “Pingle” fuel tap so no more bothersome vacuum tap, sports seat, flat bars, crash bars and had the wheel rims plus the fork lower legs polished. As you can see he also had the bike painted into this rather unusual for a Suzuki, orange colour. The paint whether you like it or not, is bright and shiny and while not being factory finish is presentable enough if you want to leave it. Personally i think the colour is fine but it needs some original style graphics […] £3,495

            Jaguar XJS 5.3 V12 Convertible 1990 Now with us is this very pretty and rare to find in black, 1990 5.3 V12 XJS Convertible. This car has benefited from a bare metal respray on the outside and new carpets, restored wood and reconolised leather on the inside. It’s been a Labour of love by it’s owner and now right when it just needs the final minor things to finish, he has to sell it due to personal circumstances. It drives very well (gearbox recently serviced) with no nasty bangs or rattles. Engine is smooth, sounds great out of the exhausts, shows great oil pressure and no signs of any problems. Brakes etc all function as designed but the abs light has come on since a new battery was fitted. The electric windows, locks and convertible roof all operate correctly. Coming with the car is a file of paperwork that has reciepts etc showing the work carried out over the years and there is a current mot through to October. Minor bits I know that need to be sorted, there may be others, are things like the light switches for the interior lights don’t appear to work and their small wood surround was lost when all the […] £16,995

              Suzuki GSX1100G “Shafty” 1991 This great “bruiser” Suzuki was rare in its day and even rarer today. By using the GSXR1100 motor all be it with smaller carbs and softer cams and equiped with shaft drive, Suzuki made the GSX “G” a great all round bike, one that could tour effortlessly but when needed cover great distances at speed. After having been stood a while and on arriving with us we found it to be running poorly. The fault was traced to what is becoming more and more of a problem, the ethanol in our modern petrol had basically eaten the original carb floats plus the float level needles and seats!! So on top of the usual oil and filter change a new set of floats, needles and seats and a new set of spark plugs have all been fitted, now it runs properly! With just under 40K on the clock this good condition example would make a great every day classic or with a bit of work an unusual bike at a classic show. A whole lot of bike at not a lot of money in a world where a moped can be for sale at £10K!! £3,295

                Daihatsu “Willys” Jeep 1996 Well where do we start with this one? Back after the war when the Americans pulled out of the Philippines they left a raft of military equipment and vehicles behind them. Amongst it was a number of Willys jeeps, these soon became a status symbol amongst the locals but the climate, being what it is on an island in the middle of a sea, soon took its toll on the unprotected metal parts and they rusted away. The Philipino people who are very good at this sort of thing, started to produce various replacement panels to repair the original with culminating in full bodies being produced in steel. These also rust so the next step was to produce the bodies in 100% stainless steel which is what we have here. You have to say the skill involved in hand beating and bending panels to make these is truly amazing! This particular shell was purchased and then mounted onto a Daihatsu Sport Track 4×4 chassis and retains the full 4 wheel drive system, its 1600cc 16 valve engine and 5 speed box, this gives a crazy mix of Japanese engineering below a body that could of come out of the 1940s […] £7,995

Luckily the family had kept it regularly run up to temperature and moved it in and out of the garage so needing not much more than a replacement radiator, expansion tank , battery and a visit to our valeters ( as in the pictures, have you seen the weather outside?) it is now ready for a new home here in the UK. Fully UK registered on the correct “R” suffix and historic tax class so MOT and Tax exempt.

                      Peugeot 204 Restoration Project 1966 UK Registered Now with us is this very rare, first year of production, February 1966 Peugeot 204 “Turismo” (Saloon). Apart from there not being another 1966 204 registered for road use here in the UK (according to DVLA) what makes this car stand out from others is that only the very early saloons like this one, had a split rear bumper with the number plate set between the two-halves, a flat rear panel and small oval tail lights, so a rare find indeed. Originally sold new in Tenerife the same family owned it with the father passing it on to his son. The son moved in the 80s to Northern Spain where it stayed in use until 1990 when it was put in the garage you can see in the pictures, that is where it stayed until we bought it. Now a great restoration project, one that we have had running off a separate fuel system so know that the motor is good. Its body while not being totally corrosion free, is very solid with various bumps and dinks it has picked up over its years of use, all of which will repair easily with no new panels required. The interior has […] £2,995

                        Jaguar Sovereign 4.0 V8 LWB Full History 1998 As the great man Jeremy Clarkson said ” You gotta love a Jaaag!” and when one like this one turns up you have to agree. This superb “X308” is not only powered by the sought after 4 litre version of Jags then new V8 but is the rare and then very expensive to buy, long wheel base Sovereign. As such not only do you get all the usual refinements but also more elaborate/expensive wood veneer in “highly figured” burr walnut with the window control/ashtray trim panels also done in wood veneer, opposed to the plastic found in lesser models, even the traditional leather interior uses a higher quality leather. Then you have the extra 4 inches of rear leg room and the roof line is raised towards the back for extra head clearance. Exterior wise a Sovereign can be distinguished by the complete use of highly polished steel and chrome work around windows and rear light clusters, as well as polished radiator grill and boot garnish. This particular car was a Jaguar dealer’s car for its first 7 months then only 2 private keepers since and still with only 80K on the clock. Coming with an excellent fully stamped service […] £3,995

                          Renault 12 An excellent survivor 1970 UK registered.

No its not a mint concourse car, this is a car that has been in everyday use most of its life, in fact it still has a current Spanish certificate of road worthiness, an ITV. What it is is a solid car that is mechanically strong and bears the marks of being nearly 50 years old on its body. UPDATE: Now arrived with us and having spent the best part of a hot summers day, mooching around the country roads round here, it has to be said that this great first year of production R12 drives excellently, put a smile on my face anyway. Yes as stated previously there are some cosmetic issues, some bubbling  and a small amount of grot below the paint here and there, but structurally very sound and do not forget this car has not been left standing but has done its job of providing transport for its Spasnish owners for the last 49 years!.

                            Fiat (Seat)131 Supermirafiori 1600TC Rust free and original. 1979 lI have to say before I start that “I do like a Twin-cam” and Mr Lampredi knew what he was doing when he designed this one for Fiat! The 1600cc version under the bonnet of this nice Seat (Fiat) 131 Supermirafiori that we imported from Spain, is an excellent example of this. Helped no doubt by being owned for many years by a mechanic that specialised in early Fiats, it’s now 40 years old and still just as willing to be rev’d and enjoyed, especially when mated to an also excellent 5 speed gearbox. Interior is very good, just the piping round the edge of the drivers seat is showing its age in a couple of places. Otherwise really quite plush for its age. Exterior wise it has just had a full respray in its original colour as like any non restored 40 year old car that had spent its life in a hot country, its paint had faded into various hues of white and it had picked up various “bruises” over the years   but most importantly “No rust”.
