I am interested in selling my C1.

My C1 125 has been sitting unused for about 24 months.
The main reason I stopped using it was that the engine had started cutting out after about 10 minutes running. I am 95% sure this in because the valve clearances need adjusted (it’s got about 8000 miles on it, and they have never been adjusted). However, I live in Glasgow and organising a service is not easy – there is no one that nearby who “knows” C1s, and am “time poor” at the moment.
Some more info about the bike (in the spirit of full disclosure).
It’s an ex Strathclyde Police Bike on a 52 plate.
The speedo stopped working a few years ago – but I am pretty sure the mileage is about 8k.
I bought it about 10 years ago.
There is only one previous recorded owner – Strathclyde Police
Under my ownership it has been largely used for a 4 mile commuting run from my house to/from Glasgow city centre.
It’s in white with tan seats.
It has the Boot / Pizza Delivery box (also in white).
It has been dropped a few times (it’s a vandal magnet) so the bodywork is a bit tatty on the right hand side.
For example, the right tit is there, but it’s bashed.
It doesn’t have a great service history.
Bolt on Billy serviced it about 6 years ago.
I gave it a mini service about 3 years ago.
But remember it doesn’t do many miles a year.
Other than the cutting out it was running fine.
It has a Bolt on Billy Stand Mod fitted.
However, the cable to the centre stand snapped a few years ago.
I never got round to fixing this – I just hopped off the bike and used my foot to raise or lower it.
It’s a three prong stand.
I have also added high level LED brake lights
The front fork tubes are cracked at the top – but are patched with jubilee clips.
The front fork bottoms show the signs of fluid leakage.
The headlight sub-frame is quite corroded.
The MOT has run out.
It needs a 8k service – and probably the valves adjusted.
I have a good collection of spare parts (e.g. front wheel bearings) and spare panels.
