My XT600Z 3AJ is for sale. Just £1800 with extras!
Hope you guys don't mind me posting this here! It's also in the Bikes for sale section.
Sonauto colours (Blue and Yellow), nearly new set of Bridgestone Trailwing tyres + a set of road tyres with good tread life included.
Only 40,000 kilometers (less than 25,000 miles!), fully serviced last week when the rear wheel was re-spoked at a huge cost!.
Included in the cost of the bike is a Arrow Paris-Dakar pipe, + standard pipe.
New brakes pads front and rear, new fuel taps (old ones were leaking!).
Taxed until the end of Jan, and MOT'd.
This bike is ultra reliable and has been used daily over the past 5 months for commuting only. It is in very very good condition!
In addition, I have a second tank for sale (I bought it only a few weeks ago, before I decided to buy a brand new bike). This, as far as I have been told by the guy I bought it from, is leak free, and can be snapped up at a bargain price if you are interested.
I also have a WEMOTO front enduro front light which I bought new, to use off-road, but never even took if out of the packet!. This again can be had for a bargain price if you want it.
I'm looking for a quick sale (I'm picking my new bike up in a week, and need money to pay for it!!), so have dropped the price today from £1795 for the bike, to just....
£1600.00 or near offer for the bike
£30 for the tank
£15 for the Enduro light.
Give me a call anytime if you want to discuss. I can email photos to you if required
I live in Billericay, Essex, England.
My mobile number is 07904 955282

definitly its a wrong time of the year for selling a bike byt anyway I have for sale XT600Z too
Its a 1983 model year 34L. really good maintained...I bought it from a friend and started to prepare for a desert trip...
its about 46000kms on the clock, I got some extras for it (baggage rack, and some bags, and tank bag, orginal and a lot louder sport exhaust, new chain and sprockets, new oil and fillters ect...
There is the usual amount of rust inside (just suface stuff, no flakes), and the right side of the tank has what looks to be like a dent repair (the guys I bought it from told me it was nothing serious). If you are interested contact me.
BTW, if it was rust and dent free, I'd be selling it for a lot more than £30!! £30's a bloody bargain!
Well, I've never sent stuff to Asia before, neither have I used surface mail, so I may not have gone to the cheapest carrier (does anyone know of a cheap/good surface carrier?).
Anyway, I've been quoted £79.99 via 'www.Parcel2go.com' If you are interested in my tank still, and are happy with this shipping cost the let me know.....or if anyone knows of a cheaper alternative to shipping via parcel2go the shout now!!.
Yes,I`m still interested in the tank Craig but not at that shipping cost. Have you checked at the post office ? We can send quite large things via surface mail through the post office here. It`s a possibility.
Hi to the guy who just called me regarding my bike for sale (W00TTONJUK). Unfortunately your ISP is telling me that the email address you supplied is none existant, and I cannot contact you back on the phone number that came up on my mobile. If you want to get back in touch, with another email address then I can get those photos emailed over to you asap.
Hi racinghero !
The guy was me, Not sure about the message you got but I recieved the photos and have spoke to you since. Very nice bike, bit much for me.
I ended up with a 1vj 86 model.
not perfect but pretty good for 1000 euros and a tank of fuel........
Good luck with the sale if not sold yet.
