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 service and MOT will be carried out at the asking price. With prices definately on the way up for these earlier 883s its an investment as well as something you can get on and enjoy.
