story guys.

well some of you have seen here already, but i'm afraid she's got to go. turns out my back doesn't like her one little bit and i've to start looking at machines with a more upright riding position.

needless to say this is breaking my heart as i love this little machine.

details:
1987
18k km
unbelieveable condition
starts first piston up everytime
runs like a dream

last service saw:
new chain
forks refilled and seals replaced
new battery
oil
oil filter
plugs
air filter

cons: (all since before i got her)
-cracks in the stems of the mirrors - no effect on support or setting
-some very minor scratches on each side of lower fairings - rediculously minor
-pillion seat is sunbleached

that's it.
after that, she's taxed 'till july '06, she has 2 good tyres, she does 100km in second with room to spare, isn't shy about going off the top of the clock (180km/h) [on the track of course :hypocrite: ], is rediculously confidence inspiring and *loves* the twisties.

for pics see the garage here as i can't seem to get a pic to stick to this post.

Have seen this bike in the flesh and have to say it really is in amazing condition for an '87 bike. Impressively rock solid on the twisties. Could be added to your existing insurance policy for pennies too. Would make a great w/e scratcher or maybe track bike for someone too.
Would snap it up myself but it is just too damn small for me.

Best of luck with the sale Seān.

chopper, i have nooo idea...

but i doubt it as i haven't even owned the bike for a year yet. the prevous owner was a tall slim guy with dark grey hair and a fairly tanned complexion though - you might have met him. the stickers on the bike make it fairly recognisable, i bumped into him when he spotted it as i was filling up in the esso in maynooth.
