Selling my naked ST1100

Selling my naked ST1100

Postby Andy52ST » 19 Jul 2016, 23:12

After 8 years ownership I'm selling my naked Pan as I find it too heavy (and too fast!) now. I recently completed a cosmetic update, with home-made dummy tank, seat and tail, and a single Scorpion end can. MoT until May 2017, 69,601 miles. It's on eBay UK (search for ST1100 Cafe Racer) until 26 July.

Hi Andy. How well does it ride? Does suspension need any work would you say?
I love being right. If only it happened more often...

Hi Derek, the suspension is firm but not too hard, with the rear preload and damping set to minimum. I weigh only 65 kg so I'm not loading it much. I find it OK on normal roads but a bit hard on back roads. It copes with bumpy bends without getting agitated. If I was keeping it and willing to spend the money, I would look for softer springs, but I put comfort high on my list of priorities.

OK thanks Andy. Food for thought.

There has been more interest in my bike than I expected (thanks Derek), so here's a link to my bike website (a bit of a vanity project to be honest) where some of the work on it is described. I hope it does not undermine any good impressions!

If you were keeping the bike Andy, what might you look to do next?

I was going to smooth off the front edges of the valve covers and polish them, but didn't want to put off getting it back on the road.

Hi Everyone. Just to say I bought Andy's bike for local ride-outs and all is running well. Many thanks Andy.

Wow, a café-ed ST to impress chicks at local hang-outs...? ;)

Good to see she found a competent new owner though...
