    I'm sure you could still buy these new in the early 90's and you could have got 3 for that price.
    They were only ever a cheap commuter.

    I was so close to buying an almost new one as my first bike. There was one within my tight apprentice budget but I really wanted a XT250 that another apprentice was thinking of selling, so I waited till pay day and got every bit of cash i could in my hand and put it in front of the other apprentice, I thought fuck it mum will feed me till next pay day, if he said no I was going past the TS on the way home that was a bit cheaper to pick it up

    the rest is history and my Yamaha fetish began :D

    the look on the other apprentice fathers face when he found out how much he’d sold it to me for was daggers

    "But I spent $28 000 on it so that's what it's worth".

    Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that......cue people selling $65k custom Harley's.

    This is also advertised on Book Face, here's the spiel,

    "Selling Adventurer R 790. Immaculate bike, has many extras on it. 2400 klms always garaged, never rode in the rain or dropped. Some of the features, cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring system, Akropovic muffler, straight out Decat elliminator exhaust, Magura hydraulic clutch, Excell rims and anodised inner hubs. KTM power parts, anti vibration handlebar mounts, and the list goes on and on. The price is 28,000 ono"

    He claims it has a hydraulic clutch, can anybody comment on that?
    Is there a conversion kit?

    "Magura hydraulic clutch"

    Marina, Morris or Leyland? Austin-Morris was a division of Leyland at the time (1971-80ish). Imagine how sciniltillating the performance of the 1500cc diesel would have been....
