JUST 4,032 miles!!!! Interesting find & one for a collection.
Apparently registered in 1983, ridden briefly then put away until it was found in 2013!
I have a print off from GOV.UK from Aug 2014 showing tax expired on 1st Aug 1984 as proof.
The bike is very original & unrestored and so obviously has some "patina" to go with being 36 years old.
Starts on the button & silky smooth it had new tyres & battery & front brake pads in 2017 (Which I can only assume at the same time the bike was generally re-commissioned judging how everything works perfectly but no invoices on file) then it's VERY 1st MOT on 14th Sep 2017 with certificate showing 3,900 miles! Current MOT done on 26th Jun 2019 showing 3,950 miles.
Whilst not perfect it has a lot of good points BUT the value obviously lies in the mileage & it's a UK bike. Could be kept as is or little restoration to make a show bike as these are now suddenly becoming collectable and spares still readily available (although having said that she hardly needs anything)
I have just collected it & setting about detailing her so lots more photos to follow when done.

FOR SALE £5,995 (NOW SOLD) Triumph Street Twin Café Racer that has had a superb "Blacked Out" job
2nd time of owning this as I had to have it back again. My personal favourite bike that has been done beautifully. So many tasteful extras, low mileage & pristine example - the TEC mufflers are to die for & I rode it last summer & again today - just the BEST example & so docile to ride. I also love the HEIDENAU knobblies they handle a treat!
FOR SALE £4,995 1986 Honda XLV750R having had 2 year restoration by Honda Specialist in Italy
Walk around & quick start up of this beautiful old XLV (now 35 years!!!) having been restored in Italy from the ground up including work done to the engine I believe & then imported to UK in 2019 & done 700 miles since. Cracking bike that was a bit of an Enigma in its day but the pre-cursor to the now fabled Africa Twin & Transalp. Lovely looking livery & a great piece of historic nostalgia.
