It appears pretty mint with one owner for all that time and only a couple of scratches on it. Took it for a blat around the port hills and a wee stretch of its legs on the motorway and goes very well.

Hope to see you all out there on the local rides now!
I too have a Freewind. Be careful to watch out for the neutral light sensor bolts backing out (neutral light goes out). I had to find one bolt that dropped into the sump and my other was 1/2 way out. Best to locktite or better wire them in.
