Description Yamaha FS1E Original condition unrestored

So here it is the bike I said I'd never sell, however lack of space and a new project leaves me with little choice.

This 1974 Yamaha FS1E is in original unrestored condition with only 9185 miles from new, I purchased this bike from a good friend in 2009, he bought the bike from a Yamaha dealer in 2004 where it was used as a center piece in their window display for a considerable number of years, both my friend and I have kept the bike in centrally heated garages during our ownership.

When I took ownership, I replaced the battery, added fresh fuel a fuel filter and she started second kick, I road it for a mile or so just to check all was as working it should and then retired it to storage, I have not started the bike since and needless to say the battery now requires replacing.

If I were to keep the bike I would subject it to a little light cosmetic restoration only, personally I think it would be a crime to restore it completely as its in charming original condition, however it could benefit from the following.

The rear mudgaurd requires replacement as it is too corroded to salvage, the tyres are perished and the wheel rims could do with re chroming and re spoking, the R/H engine cover would benefit from painting and so could the pedal brackets, kick start lever and air filter housing, incidentally both pedals are original and have not been subjected to any damage. The seat is also original but has a small section where the stitching has separated please see photos, the paint work is also original and has not been subject to any damage. The exhaust and silencer are also original and dent/rust free. The bike is not MOT'd and is currently on a  SORN

As you can see a very light restoration or indeed ride as is.

Please note payment by Cash, bank transfer, or cheque, all funds cleared before collection.
I have this FS1E advertised elsewhere and reserve the right to withdraw at any time,

Please note there is no returns option with this item.

I welcome viewings please email me to arrange.

I can deliver within a 100 mile radius of Southampton for a fee to be agreed.
