Could be a bargain.

We have spare seats in the club.
Keys are not a real issue if you take the helmet lock off and take it a proper locksmith he can cut a key for it ...viola a key for the ignition . The fuel cap will probably just undo anyway... If it does then this can be used in stead of the helmet lock. ;)

went over today to give this a look (Bradford way)
on the down side quite tatty, rear brake needs attention, choke not connected/working, discs a bit worn (but not too bad)
plus side front brake seems ok/good pressure forks/seals seem ok suspension seems ok, chain ok (but no chainguard), told pop up works
all in all not a great deal to do to get roadworthy though a lot more required to get tidy/mint

Above is all assuming it actually runs and electrics are OK as no key so can't start/check anything

On the key front it is apparently a 1 key bike and the tank filler is unlocked, so as Fossie states not a big issue. This does however raise the question as it's a simple fix why hasn't previous owner done this to ensure a better sale price, something to hide ?
as with all used bikes (I suppose) caveat emptor

Even with all the above I'd buy that thing in a bloody heartbeat. It's complete ffs! 8-)
It's faster to break than to repair.

I've come across the key issue many times, people just don't think past the ignition key opens everything else.....instead the SAME KEY ..and of course getting a spare key cut nowadays will take you to Timpson et al who are not locksmiths .
