Yamaha RD80 MX A very rare sought after blast from your youth! 1982 Originally built to order for a long term friend of ours, this now rare RD80MX was discovered by a contact we use in a shed where it had stood for…..well lets say a long time! Our friend wanted a replica of the bike he had when he was 17 and as, although not in bad condition but it was a black bike, he wanted it in red. After many phone calls we tracked down in Germany, what had to be the last NOS full body kit left in existence, it even had the seat, so at a cost of over £800 it was purchased and used in the rebuild. Starting at the front we went through the bike replacing where required, his remit was he wanted a very nice bike but not one that he could not use so please leave some age to it in places, which i think we achieved (well he was very happy!). Previous to us buying it the piston was replaced and as such the engine now starts easily and pulls nicely, we have not wrung its neck as it still requires a level of running in, but once moving it feels quite willing. Gear […] £3,495

    Yamaha XS1.1S rare to see version of Yamahas XS1100 “Shafty” 1983 Rare when new and now even more so is this 1983 Yamaha XS 1.1S that apart from the obvious 4 into 1 exhaust system, which incidently sounds very nice, appears to of survived with all of its original fixtures that were perculiar to this model. In genearally very good order it will be supplied with a fresh MOT prior to sale. Unfortunately at some point in its past, it was deemed as beyond economical repair, probably back when you could still but an FS1E for a couple of hundred pounds! We have been over the bike and apart from one small soft dent on the tank, that in itself does not look like crash damage, we can find nothing obvious, maybe it was stolen recovered, who knows? Either way it rides very nicely, gear box and shaft drive are smooth while the engine pulls willingly. They are a heavy bike but it still picks up its skirt and goes well. There are some old MOTs and also a hand written record of servicing from 24K miles to 52580 so someone looked after it well. With prices for good XS1100s now regularly over 5K, our last one sold for 6400 and […] £3,795

      Harley Davidson 883 Sportster with loads of nice extras 1990 Stored for over a decade but luckily sprayed in some sort of protective substance that has done it’s job. Yes it has some minor corrosion but nothing that would not polish with a bit of effort. Has had a new battery and a carb kit, now starts and past a slight exhaust blow when cold, runs very well. All electrics work, breaks are good, tyres are old but look like hardly used, in fact it has survived remarkably well! Comes with a lot of nice extras, seat, back rest, tank etc. The two tone paintwork will polish nicely with just a few minor marks and slight bubbling on the leading edge of the front guard. Check out its on line MOT history and although there is no telling prior to when the tank mounted speedo was fitted, you will see its done very little mileage over the last decade, i think its two miles since last MOT in 2009 where prior to that it had been noted that the rear tyre was getting close, the tyre on it now looks like it has only done 2 miles! The side panel/battery cover is missing, there is one on order and a […] £4,295

        Yamaha XJR1300 Great “Old School” muscle bike in lovely condition FSH. 2000 Coming to us after “resting” for a decade in a dry warm but dusty garage, is this very nice, rare in this colour, year 2000 Yamaha XJR1300. Now having had a full carb sonic clean and rebuild with all new internal components, a new battery and a clutch slave cylinder rebuild, its back up on its toes and sounding lovely courtesy of its pair of “Predator” stainless steel silencers. Next was a deep clean to get the years of dust off and i think you will agree it came up very nicely with very little signs of the corrosion these early Yamahas can suffer from. The 35K on the clock, which is low for a 22 year old bike, is backed up by its service book, further invoices for service work etc and old MOTs seem to back this up, in fact it has only done 20 miles since its last MOT and that was in 2012!! Obviously it will come with a fresh MOT which will be carried out prior to collection by its next owner, along with its supplying dealers wallet containing the original owners handbook, data tag paper work and every MOT certificate from day one .

          Honda CB450DX A light project bike. 1993 One of three bikes that came to us after their owner passed and they were left standing, is this Honda CB450DX. As you can see by the box, heated grips and additional lights, this was the bike he used for comuting, it had already suffered a bit on the corrosion front prior to being laid up, but with a wipe down looks better already. Mechanically and electrically everything works and with a quick strip and clean of the carbs (there is a slight leak on one of them so further work needed there) and a new battery, in typical Honda fashion it started straight up. BUT, there is always a but, the exhaust down pipes have each have a small pin prick type hole in them and while running,riding, stopping and starting, it does need further work. So we are offering it as a project at only £895, that includes the original “Krauser” Top box and frame and they are worth a bit. Cheers. G £895

            Yamaha RD350 matching numbers and just “revived” by us 1973 This lovely RD350 arrived with us a bit sorry for itself, having just been imported. Now after a lot of time and effort it has been “revived” and looks the business! First thing we discovered was it was a matching numbers 350 that someone had fitted a 250 top end to and registered it as such? Now with a new set of barrels and pistons (will need to be run in) and the appropriate jets fitted, it is back to being a 350 again, this was just the start of a long process. You can see in the pictures just how much work has been carried out so interested parties are asked to contact us rather than writing pages of details in this ad as my secretary has gone on strike . £5,995

              Suzuki GS1000 A lovely example of this 70s Superbike. Coming to us from a long term friend, a very well respected person in the M/c world round here for his engineering skills,is this first year of production Suzuki GS Thou and it is just….well, lovely! A really nice example of Suzuki’s all conquering late 70s Super bike, which apart from the all black wheels,( we do have a set of non painted ones that can be available by separate negotiation), Hagon rear shocks, braided brake lines and progressive rate front fork springs (not that you can see them), is pretty well standard. Not restored by our friend but maintained and improved by him, he had been looking for a bike to convert into a Wes Cooley rep but when this one arrived after buying it blind, it was just to good to do that too so he set about making it ride 100%, no sooner he accomplished that ? Yep, you guessed it, a Wes Cooley rep came up for sale with all the right bits on so he bought that one as well !! Now the problem of space meant he just couldn’t keep both so hence why we are now the proud owners of one of the […] £6,795

                  Victory Vegas”Eight Ball” Loud and very proud to be USA built. 2005 Now fully UK registered on its age related “54” plate is this rather nice Victory Vegas 8 ball. If you do not want a Japanese custom bike, nor want or can afford a big CC Harley, a Victory is the way to go! With their 1634cc V twin motor being less “vibratory” shall we say, than some other American V twins and giving plenty of horse power. That coupled to a low center of gravity and a comfortable seating position and saddle, make this bike a viable alternative to Harleys etc. One that pulls like a train and it actually handles better than you would expect. £6,695

                      Yamaha TDR125R Rare Belgarda model. Full Power Honestly thought this was just a normal TDR125 when we bought it, all be it a full power one, not your namby pamby 12 hp version we were “allowed” to have here. Turns out to be a rare “R” model complete with a fully functioning power valve system and made by Belgarda in Spain, the company that Yamaha tended to use to develop “specials” prior to production ( Google it for full details, even the frame is different). We had to sort out a few maladies and are still waiting for the correct fuel tap lever along with its UK registration, but otherwise now Motd and ready to go. One thing else worth a mention is the front mudguard looks a bit like Frankenstein where it was badly cracked and has been plastic welded.It came with another guard, but being a Belgarda model it has Brembo brakes, so the spare does not fit. It is on the rear of the guard so not too noticeable unless you look for it, but worth a mention all the same. £2795 £2,795

                        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
