Smile New Wheels straight from Ebay

Picked this up couple of weeks back, haven't never bought anything from Ebay picked it up for next or nothing..

Having got it, it's in mint condition, all papers and drives straight...

Thanks to Ted's trucking for lifting and bringing it back in, would highly recommend

Lovely bus!
Hard to beat a good Blackbird for a ride.

Get onto jaws motorcycles website and start shopping.

Ive one since 2012 and would find it hard to part with.
Just gave it a decent once over this winter with valve clearances, new Hel oil cooler lines (they corrode eventualy), new rad (112,000kms) fork kit and a few other bits.

Well wear with it man.
Hard to beat that engine.

Yeah I'm going to get someone to give it the once over and do whatever needs doing...

Going to change the cans, not a fan of the stainless steel

The standard cans are heavy but are designed to take the vibrations out of the bike.
They look great too imo.

Let us know if you are selling the ones on it?

Have bought 3 bikes off eBay, never had a problem, though I flew in to collect them in person each time as part of the adventure!

Think the next time I go down that road I'll get it collected, pain in the tits trying to get to a 6am Ryanair flight in all your bike gear!

+1 for Ted's Trucking, They brought over a 690 Enduro for me over Christmas. Top notch service all together.
