BMW F650GS for sale heavily modified in UK
10 Attachment(s)
BMW F650GS (04)Overland RTW Spec for sale 3000 (UK) pounds
UK registered. Will have new MOT.
I am a motorcycle mechanic & built this bike for my trip from UK to NZ. It took about 18 months, it then sat in my garage in NZ for 2 years I shipped it home to the UK & have now decided to go back to NZ & can't really justify shipping out it again.
Bike can be viewed in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, England, just north of London.
Will add photo's soon
Needs to be sold by end of Feb

Nice bike there...a shame it has to be sold end of Feb....if it would be end of March I would probably be all over this :/

Does it have ABS?

Seriously...if there's any chance that you are able to keep it till end of march, I will take it unless there are major problems with the bike...Plus you wouldnt need to renew the MOT, I would take it as-is :)

(Please come back to me in any case, I will try my best to arrange something if end of march isnt an option)

It wouldn't be a problem to pick the bike up at the end of march but it would have to be paid for before I took it off the market. I could store it at a local Yamaha dealer who could confirm to you that he has it, if you are currently out of the country.
If you are in the country any viewing is OK.

No ABS on this bike.

I have had some other enquiries but it's not sold until someone gives me the money.
