    Hi All

    I have for sale a fully restored 1965 Tiger 100.

    This is my father in laws bike and I am selling it for him as he is now in his mid seventies and wont be riding it again so its time for someone else to enjoy it. I am not a bike person so please forgive my ignorance about the details

    It had a full restoration in 1993 including engine rebuild and was sold to my father in law in 1995. I dont have any paperwork or pictures of the rebuild and no history other than a few MOT's and old V5's.

    When the guy did the rebuild he reset the mileage so it is showing just over 300 miles, which is all it has done since then.

    It hasn't been used for quite some time but has been stored inside so has kept very well. We sent it away to be recommissioned a few weeks ago and now it is running well and looks great (as you can see in the pictures)

    I have the invoice and breakdown of the work I have had done including having the carbs ultrasonically cleaned, new, battery, Distributor oil seal, and voluntary MOT. It is tax exempt and now MOT exempt, we just had the voluntary MOT done for peace of mind as much as anything.

    I have seen these for a wide variety of prices and will be advertising it in the new year but if anyone on here is interested I would let it go for £5000 just to keep it simple and minimise the hassle for me and my father in law.

    If anyone is interested please let me know through the forum and I will be happy to discuss it with you.

    thanks for looking

    Certainly Goldie style although they do look a bit short to me.
    But that may be some sort of optical illusion - or I'm hallucinating!!:confused:
    Goldie 'cans' ended up on all sorts of bikes back in the sixties ... they looked good and sounded good.:cool:

    Its a lovely machine. He must be heart broken to have to part with it. But in that condition it will go to a great home.
    Regards

    Thanks Joe

    He does love it but knows he won’t ride it. He would love someone on the family to ride it but I wouldn’t be safe on a bike. Not enough wheels for me. If it doesn’t sell I might just keep it to look at, it’s a very pretty thing.
    It goes on eBay tomorrow so let’s hope someone buys it who is going to enjoy it

    It won't be there for long. Make sure you meet them somewhere or at a local store or something. Those machine are sought after by the wrong sorts these days. And don't give it away you know what's its worth. Never met your Father In Law. But tell him I really feel for him. It comes to us all when we have to part with a piece of our treasure.
    Regards
    Joe.
