V1000 in Original Specification For Sale


Dear All;

I've been asked to place the following 'For Sale' advert here on the HOC Forum.  Contact details are given after the photographs.  Please contact the seller direct for further information.


For Sale, 1982 V1000 - Red, Nickel, Black:

"In 1982 I placed a deposit with Hailwood & Gould six months before the V1000 was were released, to secure one of the first.  Time passed and I hadn’t heard anything.  I attended the motorcycle show later that year and went to the Hesketh stand.  This bike was on show, exactly the spec I had pre-ordered.  After hearing of my disappointment, the Hesketh marketing folk agreed to let me have the show bike.
The bike hasn’t been use in many a year, but it has only covered 1,800 miles and is original (factory) specification.  It needs a new battery and a good clean, but when I put it away it was thoroughly sprayed with WD40, so restoring it back to pristine condition should be no problem.
(Please Note, No MOT)."

Derek Smith, Droitwich.


This bike is situated near Droitwich in Worcestershire, UK.
