    The extra bits are probably worth £600 to £800 depending on how much they are cleaned up, so £1500 for the lot would be a decent deal. It’s still going to take a couple of grand to get it up to a nice shiny bike even if the engine is OK.

    I would think if its a matching numbers bike with all the stuff you have with it ??

    Stick it some where safe get it running and rolling I would think in the ball park £1500 to £2K

    Those forks are worth £350 or thereabouts on their own!
    Oh Great and Wise Deity, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    Courage to change the things I can! And the wisdom to know the difference!

    Give those leading links a good scrub, spray them gloss black and on their own they’re probably going to fetch about £400 on eBay so it depends on how lazy he is
    That's a given but he has a similar attitude to selling as I do; price to sell with the minimum of hassle and just get rid, move on.............


    Anyway, thanks all for your thoughts, I'm gonna put this up in the For Sale section for £1800 for a few days and then off to eBay if that doesn't generate any interest

    I doubt it will make a FS advert, someone will PM you and it'll make a nice winter project now the nights are drawing in

    Well the bike is back with me now in Berkshire. By time I got back from that there London it was too dark to start unloading, so that's a job for tomorrow when I can sort through what we have, what we want and what we're not going to need







    I have to say that Andres's mate (Nelson) is an absolute gent and so easy to deal with. He even helped me part with some extra cash for other bits & bobs he had lying around

    My plan is to Desert Sled it alloy guards, no lights or indicators, high level exhaust, knobblies etc
