1vj

Post by rhobgoblins » Tue Jul 11, 2017 1:38 pm

Thought I would test the waters here and advertise my 1VJ for sale as if I'm honest, I can't see myself using it much as I have two other bikes and it's too good just to have as a piece of garage art. It's an Italian import and currently reading 46k kilometres on the clock - it's got one of those gizmos on the speedo which converts it to mph and so no need for stickers. I bought it last year on a bit of a nostalgia trip as I used to have one exactly like it back in the 80's. Whilst mechanically sound, it benefited from some cosmetic restoration - repainted forks, swing arm, handlebars, bought some new stickers for the side panels, new chain and gave it a good service including valve clearances which improved the running. When I bought it, the previous owner had not used it for a couple of years and so part of the deal was that he put it into his local bike shop who cleaned out the carb and gave it a new MOT - I've done about 30 miles on it and MOT runs until end of October.

Can't work out how to post pictures but hopefully the attached links will work.

I'm based near Shepton Mallet, Somerset UK.

Looking for £1,750 which is quite a bit less than it owes me.

cheers
