Honda VT250 Magna
« on: September 28, 2021, 05:13:57 PM »
BARN FIND - well sort of.









Here's a 20 year old Honda VT250 Magna with ONLY 5325km on the clock. This mighty little Honda was covered in dust, under a tarp in a garage in East Kew and dug out earlier this year. I got this cheap, done a bit of work for RWC, it's ready for registration, and it will sell cheap - only $3000 with RWC and rego.

With only 5325km, mechanically this Honda is almost brand new, however being a 20 year bike it does have some minor blemishes, but it does clean-up nicely and shines in the sunshine - check out the pics. Some basic specs are:
* 250cc - LAMS approved
* Electric start
* Alloy wheels
* Front disc brake

I won't list all of the specs, they are available on the web, but here's just a link to one site: https://japan.webike.net/HONDA/V-TWIN+MAGNA+VT250C/197/m-spec/

The buyer can take the bike as it is, ride away with the unregistered vehicle permit and RWC (valid to 7 October 2021), or I can register the bike for three months. If longer rego is required, buyer to pay the difference.

The bike is located in St Helena, around 25 km NE of the Melbourne CBD, 10 minutes from the east end of the M80. Inspections are welcomed during daylight hours (I'm working from home, so most times are okay).
Cheers,  Williamson (AKA Michael)

Afterlife - up there for the climate, down there for the company.

If I'd known that I was gunna live this long, I woulda looked after myself better.

Looks good now, but not when I bought it.  I was delivering some stuff I sold on FB Market Place, and chatting with the buyer (as we do) and he threw the tarp back to reveal the Mini-me - under a cm of dust, minus side covers, flat tyres, carby in a box and a few other "issues" to be resolved. 

A bit of tidying up & reassembling, a lotta spit & polish, off for an RWC, and it passed 1st visit (well only 5000km, it shoulda).

Ads posted everywhere.  First ad on FB Market Place, I checked to see what others were available, just one other at $2500 with 58K, no reg or RWC, so I upped mine to $3000.  Been swamped with calls already, might've been a bit light on the $$.

Que sera, sera .....

Yep, probably coulda asked for more.  I've just taken a $500 deposit, only on FB Market Place for three hours.
