The previous owner advised that this T120R was fully restored by Meridan Motorcycles where he purchased it on 6th June 2017 with a recorded 1166 miles. The bike was kept as part of his private collection and never ridden. The mileage now sits at 1174 so only 8 miles covered since completion.
When purchased by ourselves we had the bike fully recommissioned and the fuel tank fully restored to concours standard as there was slight blistering around the filler neck. At this time we also had the tank stripped and sealed internally.
