With a heavy heart I am selling my DR 750 1988. I commute into central London, and am looking at the new laws coming in in April – and the trusty DR wont be allowed in central London for free anymore! £11.50 a day!! Time to buy a soulless Euro 3 bike, and no room in the garage to keep both.

I bought the DR as a non-runner, with a damaged clutch. Gave it a good going over, lots of new parts, rebuild carbs, new vacuum pump, Clutch plates, springs, pressure plate and full service. Also replaced the ignition barrel and did a fair amount of re-wiring with good quality Japanese connectors. Front forks were fully rebuilt with seals and bushes, as was the front caliper. New metzeller tyres, DID chain and wheel bearings front and rear. Motobatt battery and heated grips fitted along with some retro looking handguards and new mirrors. Top box will be removed and number plate mounted on a bracket.

Since then I have ridden the bike daily and its never missed a beat. Its kept in my garage at night and in an underground car park at work. Serviced every 2000miles.
I did a 5 day camping trip around wales in May with a mate on his BMW F800GSA and the bike kept up fine and had no issues at all over the 1400mile trip.

Any questions please ask – happy to do viewings and test rides etc. bike is situated in Bromley, BR1.

Looking for around £2500 but open to offers. Listing here first but will put on ebay/gumtree if no one is interested Smile
