Registration: W649 WP0
Sellers original description:
I bought this bike in January 2011 as I had sold everything to move house in 2010 and needed a cheap project for my biking sanity!
However, it became a labour of love!
The bike has undergone a full strip and rebuild restoration.
The bike was stripped and every part bead blasted to bare metal/aluminium.
Then the whole lot powder coated in matt black with 20% gloss and it looks perfect as you can see ;-)
The bike was rebuilt using all new stainless bolts, fasteners and fixings where possible.
The engine was sent to "Mitomondo" a Cagiva specialist who rebuilt the whole engine.
The bike has been subtly modified:
Arrow Exhaust system - £270
Braided Hoses - £50
New WP front wavy disk - £190
New Bar end mirrors - £30
Shock boot - £25
Anodised valves £10
Small indicators - £20
LED Dash bulbs - £10
New rear master cylinder - £45
Front forks with new oil seals and racing oil
New bearings in the headstock and wheels etc.
New front tyre
All new racing fluids
the list goes on.....
The bike also has 12 months MOT but tax will be needed at the end of April (£16)
The sad bit....
I do not want to sell! but thanks to the NHS I have had to absorb a 20% pay cut (ouch) and family life just doesn't come cheaper so I have to sacrifice some of my petrol head items.
The bike is excellent, this is a teenagers dream or like me a midlife crisis back to my youth bike! it will easily do 90mph and two strokes are becoming increasingly popular.
The bike has done less than 150 miles since rebuild so care must be taken to continue running in.
