Honda xl600v Transalpine | United Kingdom | Gumtree

1996 model, 20,000 miles, top box, metal belly pan, engine bars, tank skin, new chain, has been rebuilt, on a Q-plate £1,000

Non-standard all white paint job? If you look closely you can see red paint underneath the white.

I'm not sure it's really a 1996 model as it has a black engine, single front disc, rear drum brake and an "old style" (pre-1994) front cowling? So my guess is it was made around 1990/1991 (hence 20,000 miles seems extremely low for that year).

(DVLA website says this vehicle was first registered/imported in 1998 )

The black engine with the chrome oil feed pipe gives it away as a pre-update model, so 1988/9 model. Too much wrong with that machine to get me to want to go anywhere near it:(

1991 Honda Transalp | eBay

1991 model, 54,000 miles, homemade hard luggage, tall screen, engine bars, heated grips. Non standard all-black paint job, hard to tell condition as pics aren't great.

I seem to remember this was on ebay before, but can't find the link. My estimate is it's worth about £900
