For Sale By: Private Seller
This has been my "Sunday Cruiser" for the last 20 years. It was stored unused in a crate in a military warehouse near home and sold at public auction when the warehouse was closed in the early 90's..I'm the only one who's ever rode it and I've rarely been offroad and generally rode it conservatively (no stunts and nothing crazy, in other words). It runs well, looks good, and is a pleasure to ride. It doesn't need anything and almost all parts are easy to get at good prices. It is street legal and I have the registration for it. I'm selling it because I've decided to spend my leisure time riding ATVs instead.

The factory service manual, factory users manual, most of the tool kit, tool kit pouch, 2 new oil filters, and 3 new exhaust clamps are included in the sale as well.

The muffler has been repaired at the front where it joins the exhaust pipe (originally, the metal was thin at that one area and a hole developed) and the whole muffler was repainted.
 
Most rubber parts have been replaced including both tires (they have about 15,000 KMs (10,000 miles) usage on them), the front shock boots, the timing belt, the carb intake manifold,and the rubber on the shifter and the kick-start. The dash plate is new and the original is included in the sale as well. The battery was recently replaced as was the front brake lever, and the decompression lever.

Please Note: The decompression lever is new and made of plastic and doesn't really actuate the decompressor well because it just bends. I received the bike without a decompressionr lever and used it like that for 20 years without needing to decompress the engine to start it. I replaced it only to complete the bike for sale and would likely remove it if I continued to ride it because it interferes with the clutch lever operation. If you ever need to kick start it, the lever on top of the engine can easily be moved if necessary.

The "mileage" on the odometer is actually kilometers because this was made for the Canadian military. 18208 kilometers is about 10925 miles.  Both miles and kilometers are displayed on the speedometer

 Almost all replacement parts were purchased online from Force Motorcycles of England at reasonable prices

The bike can be picked up in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. If you wish to ship it I can assist in having it crated for shipping but unfortunately it is at your risk and/or the shipper's.

Thanks for looking and I welcome any questions
