Default 1 has to go...but which one?

It's a tough choice, 92 blade or sp1. What is it going to be? Needs must so keeping both is not an option

Currently neither is being used, but I'll commute and go on occasional blasts

What's the condition like on both?
Surely there's something else you can sell.

Both in pretty good condition, unfortunately as you know weather or not you use them, they are costing money and with 3 kids I'm not getting a chance to go out on them much... Damage limitation is needed

For future value / resale, it's gotta be the SP1.

If the blade isn't in collectable condition - uncut rear mudguard, original indicators, no crash damage and no polishing/anodising/bling then it's not really worth hanging onto. There are millions of shit blades still around but not so many SP1s.

The blade would probably be a lot nicer to live with for commuting, day to day work.
For Sunday blasts with the odd bit commuting I'd much rather have the SP though, just because of the rarity and HRC special sauce

Blade is still pretty much original, still has the mudguard, still has original Indos, hasn't been crashed. I find it more usable day to day but I do really love the focused drive of the sp.... It's a sad day having to make this decision

Sell the SP1. There's idiots everywhere willing to pay big money for them.
The 'blade is a much better bike for keeping and riding.
