For Sale: UK : Surrey : 4 x Honda XL600 LM Paris Dakar - my personal collection!

Hi everyone,

I thought i would offer this to HUBB first as its where the true adventures start - hopefully these bikes are for some one or some group of riders.

Up for grabs is my personal collection of 4 Honda XL600 LM, big Paris Dakar trail bikes.

All four are in exceptional condition and have been well maintained, serviced and looked after by myself. Valves always maintained and serviced with only the best oil and plugs.

Cosmetically all bikes are in fanatastic condition considering they are 25+ years old.

I love these bikes so much i intended the collection to be a long term investment, and in vain that four friends/ brothers would go across africa. However i got bigger fish to fry with a new house to decorate.

They are all of the best condition and low mileage, as i have seen few are far between over the last 5 years collecting them. Simple to work on and amazing durability.

I know the value of these bikes and they are becoming really rare collectables, engines and frames are bulletproof and they can run forever. Would love to see them ALL go to a good home, or be put to use ie: a trip across africa.

3 are single headlight models and one is the twin headlight model. Mileage is below and are all in KMs.


Please only phone me on 075321 69088 after 8pm Mon - Fri , as i will only have my phone on me once i finished my shift.

Price: I would like to get £5000 for all 4 bikes, or £1250 each this is once in a lifetime opportunity and you will never see 4 of these again together in such good condition. I am open to offers but in no rush or not deperate.

Why buy 1 x BMW GS worth 6k when you can buy 4 of these legendary beauties.

worst case scenario i will advertise on flea- bay

Do you have any spares for these bikes, specifically a spare twin headlight set-up?

yes, spares galore, but not included in sale.

1 x 90% rolling chassis, +2 engines (in pieces needing put together), brand new clutch, baskets, gearboxes...etc...

was not planning to sell spares with bikes as I am currently finishing my other half of the collection of XL600R's - the red ones, as many parts are interchangeable.

the twin headlight set up can be replicated easily from a xlr 250 baja, you can buy the headlight surround from Honda.

seen it done before.
