That's been on sale for a long time but I notice that the price has gone down - originally it was at £2500.  The paint looks poor, so it was probably repainted by an amateur as it shouldn't have black on the tank - or else badly faded original.  It should be a beautiful metallic red (like Rover Nightfire Red ) with a black frame. It's a difficult time consuming colour to paint as you do a first top coat in silver, then base coat in the Red and finish with a few coats of lacquer. Too far away to be any interest to me.

I'd say the bottom of the tank was painted black by hand to cover the rust! Last tax disc 01. Looks complete tho, not far from me but I have too many projects already and my runners all need attention!

Another Jubilee for sale.  Advert states private seller but it doesn't read that way.

No hope at that price in my book! Pretty sure it was on eBay not long ago. Quite why you need a full fairing at 45mph I don’t know! ;)

What a horrible thing to do to an innocent little motorbike . Only a dealer or a liar could call that beautiful !.

Despite all it's faults the standard Jubilee in original trim was a sporty good looker - so throw away the fairing, the topbox and the panniers  and ask half the amount.   I vaguely remember there was some discussion many years ago on NOC about manufacture of panniers for the lightweights- maybe this had some connection.
