I have only recently brought this as a basis for a trail Transalp, but then I brought an Africa Twin last week, so I am going to modify my existing on-the-road 98 TA instead-already started.
This TA is fairly complete, the engine is loose in the frame, it wheels around, has V5 and key
Motor-according to the previous owner the motor was running before he started to strip it out the frame to prepare the frame for powder coating, which did not get done as he had relationship problems- which stopped the whole project for him. Surface corrosion on covers, looks worse than it is as it has been coated with ACF. Spare set of covers included, complete with ancillaries-starter, carbs, water pump.
Frame and rear fork-surface corrosion, but sound, VIN plate on frame and correct. Have a set of crash bars for it. Petrol tank OK small dent does not show in photos.
Plastics-Front nose and side fairing good no cracks, offside rear missing, nearside rear cracked, rear upper mudguard cracked, inner mudguard parts OK, airbox, battery box and tubes to carbs OK, instruments, instrument panel, head & tail lights OK.
Electrics-most/all? there-CDI, coils, loom, relays, fuse box, rectifier, fronts correct in fairings, handlebar levers and switches OK. Has heated grips fitted.
Wheels-Front gold rim some surface corrosion good road tyre, rear OK, silver alloy rim tyre worn but well legal.
Brakes-sticky, not jammed on hard, as I can wheel the bike around callipers and master cylinders look OK
Forks- look straight, stanchions not corroded, some light surface corrosion on the sliders
Seat-good, no rips sponge and base sound..
Radiators- look OK, some surface corrosion, have most/all? of the water pipework.
Exhaust pipes- OK, no lower heat shiels, rear silencer connection modified for aftermarket silencer (micron).
Some fastners (nuts and bolts) missing.
Ideal to make a special TA, as I was going to do or return to standard
The engine and frame numbers correspond with the V5 and are not tampered with and clearly readable.
I have some more pictures; message me with a broadband email address for a selection or the areas of interest.
I want £450 for the lot.
