he was asking HK$ 35000 for the bike - which is the goin rate here kind of... but this one got 100,000 on the clock so maybe a bit high side - but they are rare here. since there was a bit spate of bike thefts a few years back....
yes we have HISS here.
we discussed HK$ 25,000 - an I liked the guy an I in no rush - so I said try get more then come back to me.. ( cos I have to get this past the missus who is about to give birth to twins nex month
much easier if its a 'bargain' )
he come back to me a few days later and said he had trouble starting it
( for my hornet from cold no gas an then add choke when it fires- same for blade ??? cos I will go an do a cold start on it tomorrow or day after to see if/ how much it rattles about? )
he's dropped price to HK$ 15,000 - which is jaw dropping good price - but.......
looks like he rides in the rain which is fine cos I plan to do that too,, and a bit dirty around the headstock -lower clamp area - this could explain the speedo - but not sure on the starting issue?
BTW the bike sounded awesome an pulled really nicely compared to my hornet 599
has a short exhaust on an is pretty loud - but sounds healthy!
so mixed feelings on this one.. ( i will have to sell my very reliable Hornet 599 to 'refund' this purchase.
