A pre 1980 stallion, fit enough to hold 70mph up hill and down dale, and
sturdy enough to hold this effort for a 1000 miles.
Anything considered, ideally, between 250- 500cc
A little pre match fettling is not a deal breaker.
Target price - less than £1500.
I will of course sell this fine machine back to you,
after it gloriously passes its test, if so required.
Thank you
I will be gentle.
Please form an orderly que.

It's an unorthodox request. I'm sorry I don't have one to offer you.

If I may ask, are you taking place in a vintage ride or something? Not that it matters, I'm just curious.

There doesn't seem to be much about.
John. You may have to look on Facebook, Gumtree or eBay etc but there are a lot of bikes out there that fit the bill. Keep an eye on Pointless 1000 thread over the next few days and I hope you will see...

Lots of imported 'custom' types about, 400twins up to 750fours.
They all need some fettling. Here is one I was looking at but they haven't replied to
my questions. So I've got a different one. I think a carb clean and some tyres and a battery may do it

Good luck.
I'm waiting for the snow to go in Sunderland to fetch a CB650 Custom 1981 £1500
Pictures to follow when I fetch it

Clicked on a fleabay email notification in my inbox this morning 30 minutes after it arrived and I missed the boat :-(

Did someone on here win this Classic BSA C15 at £1,500?

Maybe for the best just checked the performance stats and I'm thinking it'll probably struggle to maintain anything near 70 mph for a 1,000 miles

Now looking for a Japanesse 250 to 500 twin or four
