The seller says this one benefits from a marque specialist top end rebuild dating to 2014, as well as a nearly all-stock setup. It sounds to be a strong runner ready for riding, and sale even includes the original bill of sale. Find it here on eBay in Los Angeles, California with reserve not met. Special thanks to BaT reader Eric for this submission. The seller describes a highly original bike that’s always been garaged during their 29 year ownership tenure. Purchased from the original owner in 1988, the bike retains all stock equipment apart from the twin leading-shoe front brake setup, though the original hub and rim are included should the next owner want to revert to bone-stock. Mileage is reportedly accurate, and the all-aluminum, twin cam, 250cc parallel twin benefits from a professional top end rebuild dating to 2014. The seller admits that the bike has been ridden more in the past weeks than the preceding 20-25 years, though a carb and tank cleaning reportedly have it starting easily, idling well, and running strong during their 10-mile round-trip commute. Sale includes the original order form/bill of sale, and needs sound to be limited to small jobs like adjusting the brakes and speedo.
