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

That could be correct, service bills from workshops often run into the £500s.. What is an hours labour these days???? £70-80??? then when you look at parts and fluids etc sounds about right if its a full service and the cost of a MOT....

Streetfighte word goes into my head, gets processed in 0.something seconds and out comes somebody crashed their bike and is too cheap to try and fix it properly...maybe thats just me, I have seen ones built from the ground up by people who wanted a streetfighter from the beginning, but they're rare and have had like 10k spent on them and sell for 1k...

...when they go wrong, how fun will it be to find out where the part came from...erm...perhaps bike #15 on the list that was used to make this :whistle: :shock:

that stubby can doesn't say careful owner.

Who knows if it's actually a 1999 anyhow. (it's only going to be a left over unsold RVF if it is) but i've seen NC24's over here that were last made in 1987 on an L plate.. thats a 93 year! How they manage that I don't know.

Although my MOT'er told me the strangest he saw was a 'streetfighter' that when put into the MOT computer came up as a 4 wheeled landrover or something daft.
