Pretty much anything you can buy in stainless i have in this bike!
Tank is styled after the DT models with metallic orange and the stripe
MOT exempt and eligible for historic tax status
The bike is not ridden frequently as i have a bad knee and the kick start can be an issue. Due to the infrequent use there is some rust on the oil tube and wheel nipples as well as some parts i havent been able to find in stainless. Also the paint has started to bubble up, but there are no leaks and i have a spare tank which will be for sale seperately.
The pipes make this bike sound fantastic and its great for b road blasting. but i would like to look for something a bit newer that i can use more as a tourer.
Any questions please ask
