I've been offered a 1998 Honda XL600V Transalp with 35,000 Km on the clock by a mate of a mate, It's been stored a few years in his Mum's garage and he reckons it will run after a carb clean and a new battery.
I've not seen it yet, but the photos look OK, I'm thinking of doing it up over the winter and maybe using it as a second bike or something comfy when I just want a potter about the green & pleasant.

Has anybody had one?

He only after a grand for it and it's got some nice big ally panniers with it and some crash bars. I think there's a tear in the seat and a crack in the front mudguard, but apart from that he reckons it's ok.

But the wife is going to kill me when she finds out and as she's never in a good mood it's going to be a bit frosty round here on Wednesday night when I trailer it home: any suggestions?

get it done min.....

Mibbe worth a punt........only tho if ye can get the price doon as IMO a grands a bitty rich for a non running nae MOTd 20 year auld bike.

 But wi a wee bit TLC and get her running n MOTd and its worth another £500 quid minimum straight off.....folk like these things and theres a wee bit o a renaissance goin on wi auld original "adventure" bikes partly driven by the Africa Twin success
