Description ARMSTRONG MT500 Harley Davidson, Ex MOD with History !! Amazing project.

Hi here for sale is my Armstrong MT500 1986 Ex MOD (British Army Royal Artillery 32 BTY Germany), for restoration, spares or repair.I don't really want to part ways with this machine as it is a rare find and I have managed to trace its history from being built in Bolton England to service in Germany with the Royal Artillery but loss of space forces sale. Being Ex service myself it holds a special interest for me and it has taken me a long time to find one as complete and untouched as 09KE08 (military reg), the machine isn't running at the moment but I'm sure a few hours fettling will see her up and running as there's mountains of compression and kicks over freely, well as freely as a left hand kick 500cc single engine should !. 

It is exactly as it left the Army on 14/02/1992 and even still sports its military registration - 09KE08 on is mudguard, I have had this bike for a while now with the intention of restoring it over the winter months however loss of space means that someone else gets the opportunity to own this rare piece of military history. 
The machine has only covered 6480 genuine miles which is nothing for a bike of this history and gives you an idea of the potential in it, I have spent months and months tracing this machines history and have managed to liaise with the Ministry of Defence & Royal Logistics Corps museum in Camberley to obtain information such as MOD 'Merlin' report and letters direct from the MOD to myself to ascertain its history/authenticity and have all paperwork to pass on to the lucky new owner.
Also there's a Genuine MOD 'Technical Manual' that was issued to the MT Sections/Operators with servicing information and such like, the original sales brochure from Armstrong (Bolton) and a Rotax engine specific repair manual. 
There is a huge following for these machines and loads of like-minded people on places like 'MT Riders Club' ect who are a font of knowledge when it comes to these MT's.

I have not yet registered the machine so doesn't come with the V5c document (it has no owners other than MOD) however, it does come with ALL the paperwork required to obtain one and is a relatively straight forward process from what I understand.
I have acquired some spares such as set of OE rear indicators and manuals, I had every intention of owning this machine forever but I just do not have the space any longer and am gutted !. That said I spent a long time trying to find one of these that had traceable history and that had no owners (other than MOD) and spent  time researching its history as stated so I know its worth.... I will not be letting this go for peanuts or looking to swap for anything else.
This is a genuine sale with genuine reasons that sees it here on eBay so please, only genuine bids.

Please ask any questions and study the pictures carefully BEFORE bidding as I will not tolerate tyre kickers, dreamers or Walter Mitty types !
Anyone with less than 10 feedback please contact me first or I will cancel your bids, also contact to be made within 24hrs to arrange payment/collection at end of auction.

Cash on collection please, payment within 48hrs & collection asap as space is a issue.
