Can Am 250 FOR SALE

Post by BikingBodger » Sun Jul 17, 2016 1:41 pm

I am selling my 1980 Can Am 250, as "spares or repair"

Last year I fitted new tyres and NJB rear shocks, as well as re-building the front forks with new seals. Also new rev counter and speedometer cable fitted.

All was well until the day of her MoT test when she wouldn't start; the kick-start and gear change shafts are concentric, and every time I try to kick-start the bike second gear engages and the bike won't start.

After 9 months I have realised that I will not fix the bike. If you know how to sort the problem, or are prepared to have a go at fixing it, everything else is sorted and you'll have a good Can Am.

I'd like ÂŁ600 for her, but am open to offers near this. If you're interested, please contact me on 07780 628881.

Have a chat with Minter. He rebuilt my Can Am engine two years ago and it was a work of art.

The guy behind the Canned Ham website is a Canadian national who has lived in the UK for many years (and still does). He is an expert on Can Ams. It might be worth seek his advice. Contact via: canamchris@gmail.com

Thanks for the advice, but I have lost heart, and the bike is now sold.
