Welcome from nz & thanks for posting good clear pic. Good solid bikes those 400's.
Headlight looks interesting. What tricks are going on in there. Curious.

Thanks for the welcome, I've been lurking for a while now.
The Headlight is a Hella unit with a H4 bulb, preparing to go 12 volt.
I still have the original Sealed Beam, still working.
Regards
Andy

Evening Andy, from near Salisbury.

Price isn't unreasonable. However, the Brits on this forum probably already have an Enduro/Trail bike (or, in my case, four!).

A classified ad (ie with a fixed, low fee) on fleabay might be your best bet.

12v conversion.... shudder.

If you want to modify it, do it for yourself to enjoy, not for the next owner.

I can pretty much guarantee that 80% of prospective buyers will see "12v conversion" and move on to the next bike.

This market values original machines and shuns stuff that has been messed about with.  Your 12v conversion will not add value to the buyer or ticket price to you,  and will make it far harder to move on.
After all, what is the point of a brighter headlight when your bike will likely never be intended as a daily rider and in all probability will only be used for short rides on sunny days.

All the buyer will see is a potential headache and expense to put it back to its original state.

My honest advice is to not mess with it.

Hi Andy. the price is good, you can also try FB marketplace before Ebay. Surprised it has not sold as yet, a restored unit will fetch in the region of £6k, I would not sell mine for less if I ever sold it that is.
