that's just down the road from me - good mind to go and see if they'll remove a rocker box if I ask them to

NO warranty & sold as seen tells me they KNOW it has a problem & I wonder if they are auctioning it to get around consumer Rights Law which makes them liable for any faults discovered subsequent to sale (although may be hard if they say it was fine when they sold it given the lack of symptoms). At 16k miles the flat tappets will surely be well past toast - mine killed first set at 13k miles & second set at 23k miles - so not even worth buying cheap except for the spare bits. Used old Grisos remain a minefield with people trying to shift dodgy provenance stuff.

Rocker cover would tell you it still has flat tappets and maybe you could get a hint of metal loss below if the tops don't line up, but hard to prove anything wrong until you pull the cam box & get the tappets out - I doubt they'll be up for that level of inspection in the showroom Sad

If you buy it, ride it home, pull the cam box and discover disappeared tappet ends....they could presumably deny it left the shop like that & you must have over-revved it up the cat&fiddle ! If you buy it unaware and ride it a few 100 miles a year you may not feel the pain for ages......Its sitting at 2800 gbp with 21 bids and couple hrs to go.
