1974 C90 for possible p/x

Post by DogRustyJunior » Fri Nov 06, 2015 5:26 pm

Hi all,
I'm thinking about maybe getting something a little newer,or a little bigger,and given that C90s are like currency at the moment,thought I would pop a little ad on here :)
Facts:
1974 (tax exempt though logbook needs updating at post office to reflect that) Elephant Grey C90.
One of the last with the torque arm anti dive front suspension.
Genuine mileage of under 7000.
NO ROT,never welded,never patched,usual rust pockmarks bleeding through the paint but no corrosion whatsoever,bike was garaged and off the road from 1982 until last year.
New exhaust,top end decoke,Michelin m45 tyres,new old stock rear rack with pannier brackets,pannier bags and period fibreglass Rickman top box.
Halogen headlamp,LED rear lamp (bright as the headlamp!),led sidelight.Proper earth wires added to indicators and headlamp.Correct pressed metal number plate,small tear at rear of seat cover.
Oil changed every 500 miles.I've done 3000 miles on it every day since March.
One extra tooth on the front sprocket,holds 45 easily,will sit at 50 in good conditions.
Averages around 135 mpg
MOT until end of March 2016.
Thinking of maybe a townmate,jahova(!) Or similar

Townmate won't be much different Innova a little quicker :?
Why not think about a CG125 brilliant little machines that will actually overtake trucks on the main roads

Keep it, there's little to be gained by swapping and the chances are you will always regret it.... :D

You could sell the Velocette and buy a Innova or similar. Use to 90 for weekend bimbles pretty much all I use mine for :)
