Most bikes were new, but some were two or three years old.
Never had a Yamaha....don't know why.....
Now thinking about a new Bonneville T120.
Never had any real issues... NGK suppressor cap like the CB650 I have now which was a huge upgrade on the metal clad version on the bike when I bought it... still remember the reg after all these years NNF 150W...If you could spray enough WD40 on the spark plug cap to get it going in the wet!

Bought it new from a place in Salford and rode it to a "Star Rider" course then followed my old man in his Maxi back to Stockport.. the worst journey he has ever made he said... an out of control teenager behind him...
Worth good money now
