DSCF2902.jpg 22052012014.jpg 22052012012.jpg

Breaks my heart but house move forces sale of my May 1995 Africa Twin, I have owned her since August 2011 and only done @1700 miles on her so she is a complete luxury and needs to go to someone who has the space and time for her!

She is faultless and I would'nt hesitate to ride her to Lands end or Italy and back ( I say that as I had a trip round devon and Cornwall and one to Italy planned for this year which we had to cancel as my brother fell of his dirt bike! )

She has the Facet Fuel pump replacement, K & N air filter, Oxford heated grips, 12V aux socket for Sat Nav etc, Datatag, has 2 keys, New tyres 2011, New OEM rear shock in 2008 + complete suspension service ( new oil , seals etc ) in November 2011 and a rolling road Dynotune at the same time, complete rear wheel bearing set April 2012, OEM front sprocket August 2011, New Scotoiler and iridium plugs August 2011, Oil filter and oil change August 2011 and a new Vario touring screen in Sept 2011 ( I still have the oem screen ) & Givi tank bag.

I have a heap of old invoices and MOT certs.

I fitted new pannier racks and Alpos aluminium panniers ( 32 & 36 Ltr ) in March 2012.

I am reluctant to sell her but need to realistically as I am moving house and both Trustys Twin and my DR650SE have to go!.

The bike is a tasmanian green M plate Africa twin. It has done 52K miles and is fitted with the following main extras
White Sw Motech engine bars
Centre stand
Heated grips.(Oxford)
New Scottoiler
GA Wells comfort seat conversion.
Honda workshop manual + lots of old MOTs and receipts

The bike is in good condition, rims, panels, engines etc good, tripmeter fully operational, a few stone chips on paintwork, the engine covers show a bit of surface corrosion- ask for extra pictures
The bike is mot'd until May 2013.

I have had her since August 2011 and only done 1700 miles on her, the previous owner was an XRV member ( DOD ) only did about 900 miles on it, The previous owner ( again XRV member ) to that had the bike for 3 years doing ~12000 miles on it .
It has had the following work done on it over the last few years, bills available for much of it.
Front brake calipers stripped and rebuilt with new pistons, seals and pads. Rear pads replaced at same time
