Car Model: 1991 C900S LPT

2018, £690 (labour) of welding done. Rear shock mount, o/s driveshaft tunnel panel, both rear inner wings. Additionally a couple of other small plates – n/s driveshaft tunnel and n/s boot floor. Don’t be under the impression she’s a rotbox, anything but. No corrosion advisories on the new MOT. You’re welcome to crawl underneath. Huge stack of receipts, highlights:

Also will be a stack of invoices missing – e.g. the last owner also fitted a replacement radiator, and a PAS pump. Halfords battery is 1 year old (no receipt).

She isn’t perfect, so if you’re after a 1 owner 30K minter - she’s not for you. If you’re a pedant, you’ll probably find all sorts of minor issues. Again, not the car for you. She has no headlining – never bothered me. Driver’s door need a slam, lighter doesn’t work, can remove the ignition key without locking in reverse, driver’s cloth seat side bolster has a few small tears in it etc etc.
Body wise, very good - but of course not perfect. The odd little bubble has come back after nearly 8 years. Door bottoms are great. Worst part is the bottom of tailgate, this has been rubbed down, treated and repainted with black satin paint previously. No dents or fading.

Drives lovely, no stutters, overheating, warning lights etc. 5th gear can occasionally baulk a little if hurriedly changing up.
I don’t really want to be sending out umpteen photos, but I'd be willing to email on some pictures - not dozens. I went all the way to Taunton for her. – if you’re genuinely interested, you’ll come and see her. No rush to sell at all, it will only get spent on another motorcycle. Test drive requires proof of insurance to drive other vehicles 3rd party. PM me for contact details. I won’t answer withheld numbers or calls after 9pm. Viewing is Friday to Sunday only due to work. DE4 postcode, Whatstandwell is the nearest train station. Thanks.
