I am sure it's a very nice bike and wouldn't begrudge anyone a sale.
Is this Desert Express a special version of these bikes,ex Dakar ?
Or is it just a sticker ?
Good luck with the sale whoever's it is.

It`s been on Ebay for a few weeks now. It`s a standard 1989 750 SK with a non UK paint scheme.
It`s had a paint job, that`s all. Some of the paint is downright diabolical ie the blue exhaust and rear caliper. What were they thinking?
The rear brake line and fuel hose are routed completely wrong, and if they cant get basics like that right, you have to ask what else is wrong with it.
Overpriced by about £5000. You can get a new DL650 or NC750 for the same money.

Not ex Dakar.....just EX pensive :tup:

Paint looks good on tanks and other bodywork but my guess is that it had been done by somebody who has no idea about the bikes or they would not have made all the effort to get the original style paint right and then mess it up with the weird blue bits and grey mudguards.
