eBay 'specials' and other junk finds

A place to bang on about subjects close to your heart that affect us all as 400cc riders. general banter is rife, however rudeness and abuse seem to be the norm, If a bit wet round the ears best go play elsewhere. Auto pruning of items 31 days and older

Very rare indeed!

I'm sure it's a completely honest mistake...

I'm now thinking my castrol one is from the factory and the previous owner stuck Dream Machine stickers under the lacquer :whistle:
I took an IQ test and the results were negative.

Yours is VERY RARE and sounds MINT, Muttonchops!

It's very tempting to ask Gaz about this factory Castrol scheme. I'm sure he's a veritable fountain of knowledge for K models.

Yet another one to add to the list of stupid over priced BS bikes!!!

Ebay should have a wanker star system in place, say 1-10 stars the more stars a buyer has the bigger the wanker they are!!!!

dream machine used to etch reference numbers on the inside of every panel.
this ref code was used by DM if a customer wanted touch up paint.. or a re-do a few years later. they used to keep records up to 5yrs..
My NC29 has these ref codes on my panels. its how i found out :0)

That's pretty handy to know, thank you.

Well mine is the original one so his can't be.

I am going to watch this one though that's for sure.
I saw it so I took it!
