Due to my on going health issues it's with a heavy heart that I have finally come to a decision regarding the plight of WinalotPrime and it's that he must find a new human to protect, Doh !!
I've only advertised the bike on here at the moment to "test the water" just in case any of you cats are on the look out for an 850 MK2 for a friend, colleague or family member, I'll ask the boy to put it in MCN in a week or so if no interest or takers.
Y2K bike on an X plate
26,000 miles covered (90% Dry miles since 2013 !) , only had 18k on it when I brought it !
2 owner bike
Metallic silver (Fastest of the Mk2's apparently, don't let people tell you it's the yellow ones !)
Has a full service history
Valve clearances done at 20k
All books, Yamaha tool pack, spare keys available
2 into 1 S/S exhaust down pipes with S/S slip on can
Givi mono rack fitted (colour matched frame to bike) & Givi top box if required
Suzuki Vstrom hand guards
New Gel battery fitted Pre Lock-down
Plus numerous small mods too many to list (I'll enlighten potential purchasers)
I'm biased but safe to say it's in "Well above average condition" especially for a 20 year old bike.
WinalotPrime was a featured bike in Classic Motor Cycle Mechanics a few years back (I still have a signed copy by Bertie Symmonds & Mark Watson somewhere) it was titled "The Pampered parallel" and basically documented how I came to be in possession of the bike and the ground up refirb I carried out back in 2012/13.
It's currently on SORN and has been since hanging up my helmet & gear in Oct 2018, and has been dry stored in my garage.
I will put 12 months MOT on it at time of sale, will sail through as I have spent the Spring going through the brakes, checking chain, tyres, doing an oil change and getting it cleaned and polished up ready for the road again, it'll just need a tank of fuel and away you go
Was looking for £1600 solely down to it's condition and history of the bike.
If you need any more specific details please "PM" me and I will give you my phone numbers.
Stay Safe Carpe Dudes
PS : I'll add some photos shortly : Tadah !! Photos added from this morning
Also here's a link to Carpe Members Gallery, photos of the bike with a lot of "Before & After" shots of the refirb 2012 / 2013.
