I try to collect one owner bikes so I can get the story of how they came to be from the original owner. This was one of those bikes, which was the reason I bought it.
The Burner is completely original, original paint, decals, and all parts are original, apart from the grips. It is what's known as a phase 2 Mk1 so has nylon'lightweight' pads instead of the vinyl press stud type.Quite unbelievably the Burner still has its original Cheng shin snakebelly tyres in the original fat/thin combination. The rear 20x1.75 is almost impossible to find these days, so I never wanted to change it. The bike is a great survivor, but the tyres are fragile and the rear is rather bald, but thats what appealed to me, that it was so untouched and I hope the new owner will appreciate it for what it is, rather than restore it and make it look like all the others. The original seat is present, but has split, please see the specific image. That really is the only defect to speak of. A rare survivor in todays world where everything has to be mint. To me perfection is boring! Please study all the accompanying pictures, taken outside in natural light, as they form part of the description. If you do have any specific questions about the condition of any parts or the Burner in general, please don't hesitate to ask. Or you can collect the Burner, and you can either pay before you collect or on the day its up to you.
We are in the North West close to Jcn 23 M6. Alternatively you can arrange a courier you trust to collect, but that is arrange by yourself at your own cost and risk. I will make myself available for any collection with reasonable notice.
