Cagiva Elefant 750 (UK) plus bits

Alas I am selling my second Cagiva Elefant, along with a fair amount of spares
N Reg, about 20,000km on the clock (will check this later). Brand new suspension front and rear, new rectifier. If you don't know the elefant they are like a lighter Africa Twin, great frame and Ducati 750 motor

The bad bits - bit tatty looking, some damage to the front plastics, dent on one sump guard, but other is fine. Non-original indicators, missing LE graphics but these can be picked up fairly easily

The good bits - the spares list includes: Road tyres (rear and 19" front) and off-road (TKC80 rear and 21" front, michelin attack(?) front on a 19" rim), spare front wheel and 21" rim (not built yet), two front mudguards, clutch plates, one OEM exhaust, sump guard, Campbell straight through stainless steel race cans (pipes need a little modification to fit right) spare rear plastics, 2 original spec boge rear shocks, hagon progressive fork springs (not fitted), performance jets for running with an open airbox, brake pads, part worn sprockets, oil filters etc.

Bike has no tax or test but should sail through.

£1250 o.n.o PM me for more details

will try and get some taken over the next few days, need to get the bike out of the shed and there are a few others blocking it in, mostly without wheels so will take some shifting...

Did you want the problems fixing and the bike fully serviced/mot'd and taxed etc or did you want it as is?

There are also some Hepco and Becker gobi enduro panniers and frame - but the pannier rack has snapped in a few places. Don't worry though - these were fitted to a different Elefant so this one hasn't had the pounding that broke the frames

Hey Henry,

Selling the Elefant? Surely not!

What are you going to replace it with?

Matt

ummm, errrr, ummm

Am still feeling pretty torn about selling the Elefant, but I need some cash. Am trying to see if rebuilding my FZR and selling that and maybe the Triumph (1968 TR25W if anyone's interested) will cover me.....

I can't think of a bike to replace the Elefant unless I could get hold of the E900 (another Elefant....), but that would render selling it useless. What I REALLY want to do with it is service the engine then blast round the world on it, but time and money constraints mean that unless my lotto numbers come up that wont happen!

I could always just go with the crowd and get a dull old XT!! lol

COUGH! SPLUTTER! Dull!...heathen!

If I remember correctly this isn't the bike you took to the stans as that was nicked? If it was it'd be worth holding on to but if not then, well you could look at this as an opportunity to upgrade to something reliable.

"Cough, Splutter"???? do owners sound like their bikes? Only joking....

You are right indeed in that it isn't the stans bike, and it may be a sign, I would probably take a jap bike for another overland trip but I want the elefant for road riding mainly, great bikes and getting rarer

In terms of reliability may I suggest that although the HUBB sees fit to have a large 'Yamaha Tech', 'BMW Tech' and even 'Honda Tech' pages there is no Cagiva or even Ducati section - surely this is a sign that they have unrivalled reliability!

I sold my 900 nelliephant about five years back and really regret selling it just a brilliant bike after trying a few other things triumph tiger(terrible),gran canyon(very good but ugly) now ended up with my trusty ktm 950 still on the ugly side but you grow to love them) which is as close as i could get to the elephant as a usable all round bike. The nellie was still in many ways one of my favourite big traillies - sell at your peril you will live to regret it. good luck !

That says it all really - am sure it would cost me a lot more to get a KTM than I could get for the fant, and I'd end up disaapointed. Will sell it if I run out of dog-food....

Not the same bike exactly. It still has the red and white, only one of the front mudguards has the LE logo and the large lucky explorer graphic on each side is missing. It has the same colour panels so getting into Lucky Explorer livery would be a case of getting some stickers. I can't get the raven racing exhaust sticker or the smc bikes one but have some spare Ducati Moscow and continental if you want them....

This bike has acerbis brush guards in white that look better than the oem ones, and actually offer some protection

Alas no crash bars on this one either.... you can have the panniers and frame (frame bust) as on the site but I don't rate them for overlanding
