Cheap RAPTOR 1000 for sale!

Post by slix2110 » Mon Sep 28, 2020 3:03 pm

Hi folks, Does anyone on here want my 2001 Rap 1000 I have owned and used and enjoyed almost daily since 2012? Before I ebay it. A couple of years ago I lost my garage so the old girl has been out in all weathers since then. Good points: Engine still strong and pulls like a train. Hagon rear shock done about 1000 miles, V-Force stainless end cans and link pipes (removeable baffles), LED spotlamps to help the twin Dominator units I put on. Adjustable levers, tyres are fine. New reg/rec, recent battery
Not so good points: Somewhat scruffy, some corrosion, back brake disc too rusty for MOT (Brand new disc comes with bike but not fitted as I can't get the bolts out of the old one) Rear caliper rebuilt with stainless pistons but back brake drags so could need master cylinder, --its only the back brake which is likely to fail on MOT. Seat needs recovering, some oil leaking from clutch cover.
I have been out of work sick for a year so it hasn't been used much recently but now I have a job working for the ONS to do with covid testing and survey stuff for which I need a car urgently (no work=no money!) Also, in my increasing years I need something easier to ride in the spring!
I can't manage to upload the pics I took today (can't reduce them down small enough) but if you email me I will happily send pics to you.
Its an ideal winter/lockdown project which still runs and rides fine. First £850 or very close gets it. Mileage about 55k. MOT only ran out about 4 weeks ago so may be covered by government extension. Bike is just sitting doing nothing so needs to go asap. Took it for 50 mile ride Thursday & got caught in downpour so now looks even dirtier!

Bargain, You won't have any trouble shifting that. I had 25+ Messages in the first 48 hours when i listed my half done one

I'd list it for more though, you will get people trying to chip you down.

Good luck with the sale.
