cheap parts bike - KLR 650B Tengai - London

I bought a 1989 KLR650 B (Tengai) as a parts bike a few months ago, but it turns out that I haven't needed to cannibalise anything.. in fact, it's now running (it wasn't when I got it), but I need to get rid of it, cos it's taking up space, and I have no-where to keep it properly.

The bike is marked as "broken or parts" with the DVLA, but I think it could be re-registered in the UK, and almost certainly abroad. It would be a very cheap bike to set up for a trip.

It's been sitting for about a few months now, but when StretcherMonkey was having issues with his carb in Locombia (oops.. Colombia), this is the bike we put his carb into (we couldn't get his carb sorted, but the bike's own carb worked a treat, and the engine sounds sweet).

The CDI unit alone from this bike would cost you £260, so if someone physically hands me £300, the bike is theirs on the spot.

What else? new wheels, good rubber, all equipment seems to work. The fairings are off it at the minute, but I have it all to hand. The fairing bolts are a bit hit-and-miss (mostly old-fashioned galvanised gutter bolts!).

I can email photos (once I've taken some, that is).

The parts from this are mostly compatible with other KLRs, if anyone is interested in breaking it. If in doubt, please ask!

It'd be a perfect farm bike.. that was the plan once i got it running, but time hasn't allowed me to transport it to the ranch.

And I had to go and buy a bleedin' carb from Canada! If you can hang onto it until August, it's a deal! I want two of everything. I can arrange for you to have the money as soon as I receive some oojamaclik from the UK, (card reader for internet purchases/transfers). I understand, though, if the neighbours are getting uppity about the eyesore!

Hi!

I can't really leave it where it is cos it would "disappear" while I'm away (and yeah, the neighbours are currently unimpressed), but if u can get someone to come pick it up for you, you're on..

How did you get on with the "flappy" Kourimitsu?

"Going Away" are we?

Feds caught up with you at last then!

Going to PM you about this as soon as I've thought it through - no business-sense in bumping your post continually...

Cool.. no prob.

Not "going away" in the sense of spending time at "Her Majesty's Leisure", if that's what you're implying, you ungrateful lump.
