Yeah, thanks. I'm fairly impulsive, so if something grabs me, I'll snaffle it straight away. I'd actually taken some cash with me as deposit, so I was prepared, but I firmly believe that some of the bolt head condition and wheel spacers are indicative of the type of life it's had. Still wondering if I should try for £2500, and consider it a 'project bike'. Like all of them, it needs lower fork rejuvenation and a heap of bolts. The other question of course is: 'How many of these damn things are around, and how often do these opportunities arise?' I think I need the wisdom of @IanDoohan .That’s a shame, it looks promising in the photos. Lots of original bits and nice colour scheme as well.
On another note, my CBR500R sold this morning (eBay). Should I see that as divine intervention?
