I’d love to see it! But very pricey for a 250 that needs some tidying up and recommissioning, even with that provenance. Can never understand why someone wouldn’t spend a day or so making the best of something before advertising. But I guess then it wouldn’t look like a ‘barn find’!!

£7.5 K for a 250?  :o madness.

Well overpriced.
I love the picture of it hidden under a cover, that must surely convince a buyer to part with his money!

A lot of people pay over the odds for "barn finds" and they say that is only original once and are happy to part with the money, ie. Honda cb750K0 went for £160K  :o

Personally I wouldn't.
