In the private ads at the back there is a bike claimed to be all original, untouched and unmodified and in nice nick having been looked after and not done huge miles (don't they just all say that).
It's up for £9750 but you never know what might happen if someone was interested. It's January, there are bills to pay and you just never know what offer might just buy the bike for cash - nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Known bike, known history, all original paperwork, buff log book and V5 plus on the original registration and matching numbers and if it is in nice condition then.......sounds a good honest bike.
Beats combined £7K plus off ebay for a bitsa (before you do the restoration and pay through the nose for the few bits that are missing but expensive).
I know which route I'd go when the Premium Bond Gods shine on me!
I think that Comet will be for sale for a good while at that price. The 'Timing Chest' could be another horror story.
