1600 TP

Post by wilgartw » Tue May 14, 2019 11:15 am

hello,

i have had a 1600 TP in my shed for about 10 years now. It was taken out a van fully running etc. it is almost complete, cooling fan, generator, petrol pump, coil, bottom half of dizzy, exhaust. missing dizzy cap and carb.

what is the best way of selling this? how much should i be looking for? the missus wants it out.

Any idea if it's been rebuilt previously and mileage? If it was mine I'd make sure it turns freely and stick it on eBay.

Hi Will nice to see your still knocking around. I did the same recently and got £400 for my spare on eBay last year. Your looking between £300 and £600.

hi keiran,

yes, i am still around and still have guinevere, much in the same state as you last saw her i think.

have you still got the 15 window?

bad news on the engine, had a proper look at it over the weekend it's not rotating, so not sure what to do with it. :roll:

Morning Will. Tim Sykes is interested.

I don't think he's on here anymore.

Would you mind contacting him via Facebook?

Thanks

Miles.
