Solidly built, but not too heavy or too high a saddle height, the C11 was a perfect commuter machine and appealed to the aspiring young rider working his way up to 'the big stuff'. In today's market, one might dare to suggest that a machine such as this could often appeal to some older enthusiasts looking to downsize from taller and heavier mounts. RFM 121 was acquired by the late owner around 2005, and has not been used during the present ownership. Stored outside since that time, albeit beneath a tarpaulin, it will require restoration and is sold strictly as viewed. Documentation accompanying the C11 comprises a current V5C, and an old MoT.
