I reckon he wants £12k for it. Hard to put a value on something like this?


Bit hard to see though what You would do with your £12K investment....

You couldn't really ride it as it would destroy the value with every mile you put on it. Also hard to see it doing much as a show bike given it's 'relative' poor condition, so it's really just a conversation piece, as you say a Coffee Table.

A mate had a KH like this one, same colour etc, when I had a 250LC, my memory of the KH was that it was slow and poor handling.

The model listed is a B4 which was pretty much the Last Triple before they were dropped by KHI, and other than paint was the same face lifted S1 from 76. The LC was a brand new model and 5 years newer which in Bike development terms is a lifetime so the KH could never hope to compete with it.

I had one on an R plate for about 18 months and learned to ride on it while saving for something with more performance.
I enjoyed riding it but my lasting memory is I always wanted it to go faster!

It is physically large for a 'measly' 250 but that makes it a comfortable bike to ride and in my opinion it is the best looking 250 ever.
The engine noise is very distinctive - you can hear them approaching from miles away
Mine was very reliable (No issues at all) and I used Bel Ray Si7 oil which burns more or less smoke free.
Use the revs to get to what power there is but not really a motorway animal.
Brakes were not brilliant but ok for a 70's bike.

You should get a really good one for a fraction of the asking price here.

I recall that the dealers couldn't shift them even at £700 or less, so who would thought-its a lovely piece no doubt


Yeah bit like the XS750 which I mention as recently one was up for nearly 7k.
