    I got a complete but declared scrap 1989 F Regd GPX 250 and a
    complete 1989 F Regd GPX 600 on SORN with a complete spare 600cc
    engine from a road bike, spare 4 carb set, radiator and some other
    bits in the garage. these two bikes have been sored in my garage for
    the last four or five years.

    I used to use the GPX250 as a commuter bike up until five years ago
    when the rubber water pipes failed under the fuel tank. I changed all
    the pipes and then the carb float started sticking. I solved that and
    the battery needed changing so I changed that then the fork seals
    needed redoing so i did that and got another bike.

    I bought the GPX 600 with a view to scrapping the GPX250 and putting
    its lovely blue and white fairing and neat white hubs on the bigger
    bike. When I bought the GPX 600 it had just had the engine rebuilt by
    its previous owner and he assured me it was perfect! So taking him at
    his word I went and bought another definitely running engine for £150
    from someone in Wiltshire who was breaking a GPX600. I bought a spare
    set of 4 carbs, radiator and other bits at the same time.

    I never got round to swopping the 600cc engines. In fact I went on and
    rebuilt a Land Rover and now got a 88" swb with six spotlights,
    running boards, etc... but thats another story.

    So the bikes have sat in the garage, one declared scrap years ago and
    the other on SORN for the last four years.

    I got the Manauls for the GPX600 and a CD with a manual on it for the

    The tyres and fittings on the bikes all seem to all in very good
    condition. No cracking or tyre damage. The 250 seems a bit stiff from
    lack of use. These bikes need to go to someone who wants them, someone
    who wants to put the GPX600 back on the road.

    I'm open to sensible offers or a swop for both bikes and all the spare
    GPX bits I got like the spare 600cc engine. I'll have a root around in
    the garage and put together all the spare fairing, screens and bits
    I've collected over the years.

    Ideally I would be happy to swop them for a working quad bike to go
    across fields to my beehives - doesn't have to be road legal. Or
    anything to do with Sea Fishing, Beekeeping,
    Boating......................I'm open to suggestions. Thanks.
