W reg. Yamaha V80 step-through in good running order and very original. Good condition for it's age, cheap to run and eligable for classic insurance. New MoT but not taxed. Cheap runabout, commuter or easy restoration.

This is Yamaha's answer to the Honda C90, except that it is an autolube two-stroke. It has a three-speed gearbox with automatic clutch (so is not a twist-and-go). Comes with a rack and period panniers (with key) and a Rickman handlebar fairing. Apart from that, it looks to be completely original. Last taxed in 1999, it has been off the road since then, but with a new battery and petrol it started almost straight away and runs very well indeed. Everything works and it passed it's MoT test with no advisories. Riding it home, it seemed to be suffering from fuel starvation, but runs fine with the fuel tap in prime position, so may need the tank filters cleaning or a tap overhaul. I managed the heady speed of 44 mph flat out, but smaller riders might manage, er, maybe 45!

Cosmetically, it is in quite good condition for a 33 year old bike. Some surface rust on the frame (as shown in the pictures) but no serious chassis rust, as is common on the Hondas. The wheel rims are in reasonable condition, with some rust that might clean off with a bit of work, but the spokes are rusty (wire wool might work). The plastics are quite good, with the white parts the worse. The turn-out at the bottom of the front mudguard was shattered, so I have cut it off level for neatness. The exhaust is solid, but has been painted silver, with some rust spots showing through. The seat is good, with a solid base, and the fuel tank underneath is clean inside. The tyres and chain are good, and the brakes work well. The bike comes with two keys, the V5C document, MoT  certificate and original owner's booklet.

That's about all to say, really. For sale from £250 with no reserve. The bike is advertised elsewhere, so I reserve the right to end the listing early. No swaps, deals or silly offers, thanks all the same. Bidders with less than ten positive feedback please contact me before bidding. Viewing is recommended, but no test rides without cash in my hand and proof of your insurance. Cash on collection preferred, or cleared payment before release. Thanks for looking.
