Selling my Honda XL 600 R Paris-Dakar, taken in part-exchange against a Honda CBX 1000 Z, which i restored to "as new", and then subsequently sold to a collector, to add to his already extensive collection. I have owned it for 8 months, but unfortunately, my bad back does not like kick-starting a big single, so she must go to make way for electric start !! (weak excuse, but true)

Being a competent enthusiast, this bike has benefited from the following:-

1/ Full de-grease, check of all bearings, swing-arm and suspension linkages, rear shock absorber, forks, headstock, wheels etc, full clean and polish, re-grease as required, re-assembled/torqued.

2/ Front and rear brakes dismantled, cleaned, serviced, pistons lubed with red grease, re-assembled with copper grease & fresh Castrol Response Dot 4 brake fluid.

3/ Engine de-greased, cleaned, polished @ 40,100km, to include valve clearance check (all ok), new oil filter & O-ring, frame fully drained, gauze oil filter removed, cleaned/checked/re-fitted with new O-ring, new NGK spark plug, engine re-filled with Castrol Power 1 10/40 semi-synthetic oil, also exhaust system removed, prepared and re-sprayed to enhance the finish.

4/ Frame and bodywork de-greased, cleaned and polished throughout, new rear indicators fitted to match o/e fronts, new Renthal bar pad fitted.

5/ New front & rear sprockets + heavy-duty chain fitted.

In overall top condition apart from 26 yr age related marks to original paintwork, with a scuff to r/h side of tank, with a faint dent, + a few chips here and there on frame, also original paint. Wheels/ spokes/ hubs in excellent condition. Advertised with MOT until13/06/2013, taxed until 31/10/2012. Engine sounds fine, pulls like a train, bike rides really well. Also please note :- Mileage listed above is in kilometres, which equates to 25,148 miles. Which is about 975 miles a year from new ! Engine smokes a little on initial start-up, but soon clears as it warms.

Tyres will need replacing reasonably soon, if i was keeping her i would have fitted more road oriented tyres, but new owner can decide, depending on what its to be used for?

Viewings/inspection welcome, ramp available, test ride only with full cash in my hand, any questions, feel free to phone Neil on 07702 782754 Heathrow area.

Ive tried to best describe what i think is a very collectable 26 year old classic, in very great original condition, so please view to avoid embarrasing haggling after auction ends.

£100 deposit by Pay-pal at end of auction, balance by cash please, collection within 3 days. Receipt provided.

Many Thanks for looking, and Good Luck.
