There once was a tale of the Salty Volty, a saucy wee lass that's kept many a sailor warm at night. The Volty is of Suzuki origin, born in the year of 1999. It's true she's done a fair few kilometres, but that only means she's had some good times living on the streets of Wellington and Titahi Bay.

You owe it to yourself to come ride this fair maiden, she is well maintained and easy to handle. A perfect uni commuter or for Sundays around the bays, stopping off at the Chocolate Fish Cafe for a super charged golden latte. FYI This bike would be a fantastic cafe racer project for the right minded sailor.

The Salty Volty is aptly named due to her ruggard exterior; there is some surface rust and cosmetic damage caused by some wild nights and days. She has always run like a dream and is a reliable starter.

I see you have your togs on, have you ridden your beloved Salty thru many oceans as she looks a tad rusty? palkins (70 70 positive feedback) 12:47 pm, Mon 17 Apr
Fair comment, I wish I had thought of that when taking these photos. Rest assured the rust is all surface rust as she has lived outside for the last three years. She has passed her WOF without too much hassle too. 2:15 pm, Mon 17 Apr
Beaut shots, but I notice ALL of your photos are taken from the right hand side. does the left hand side cover exist or has it been taken by another Salty enthusiast who maybe required one? palkins (70 70 positive feedback) 5:43 pm, Mon 17 Apr
I will see if there are any left side pics and get them up this week. You are also welcome to come see it in the flesh. Thanks 7:20 pm, Mon 17 Apr
