Bought this off EBAY as a basket case two weeks ago..

Special thanks go to Richard66 who did all the paint for me in record time, and to HillBilliez refurbishers for doing all the shot blasting of the frame and stuff !

No Pete, sorry mate def not for sale !
Within an hour of it being finished I was offered 700 quid for it, then this afternoon the same guy came back waving 850 under my nose and I still turned it down !
They are just SO hard to find nowadays ( esp. ones in reasonable nick ) that once people get hold of one they tend to keep it.
Mind you, if any more come up I will be sure to let folk know...Even a rough one is worth buying as they are really easy rebuild to do.
BUT ! Like I said elsewhere, I bought this one as a total basket case and it still cost me 245 quid plus a 230(ish) mile round trip to get it, so be prepaired to spend a little mate ...

Funny you should say that Minkey ! The colour is actually Blackbird candy Glory Red !! ( Well it was supposed to be, but it was not quite right, thats why it ended up on the dirt bike and not on someones panels!
