This could be the best opportunity to own the pinnacle of vintage motorcycling. Very nice condition and runs great. Gearbox, clutch and chassis work great. Bike has upgraded Amal concentric carbs and I do not have the OEM carbs. Has been in storage last 5 years as injury keep me from riding the bike any longer. I used to ride the bike on a regular basis before it went into storage, it is solid and fun to ride. Before listing bike, GP Motorcycles just cleaned the carbs and made sure it ran properly. If you are planning on seriously riding it, a more thorough check over would be needed. I have video of bike starting, running and being used just after cleaning carbs. I purchased this bike about 14 years ago and was told bike was restored in England in the 80’s.
