    You could have three nice CB750/4's for that & clean fingernails.
    Sensing your not a fan. Had a 500/4 but no wish to own any more car engine bikes.

    I only have two pet hates in motorcycling, Ducatis & buckets, if you're into either I'm going to take the piss mercilessly.
    Although I know some rather nice chaps that are into one or the other.

    Thinking next a 125 Ducati powered bucket would be a cool ride.

    Several years back when a certain glasshouse manufacturer was on here I told him I knew where he could find a 125 MV for a bucket appropriate to his status...

    I can supply a MV350 at the moment. It's just as bad as a Ducati. Don't want to end up on the optimistic sellers thread though.

    Couple of years back a 900 cambelt engine powered speedway sidecar turned up at the "Day in the Dirt" Talking to the owner it was an older chair repowered for BEARS and twins meetings. Neither of which I knew existed in speedway...
    It went quite well too. He'd had no problems with it - but only running for a few minutes at a time, you wouldn't expect to.
    He was keen on selling it at the time as he wanted a more competitive "modern" outfit. Never seen it again.

    I had a four door coupe, a Volkswagen CC.
    Mind you that 128 fails the original the original definition of coupe - "cut", ie a cut or sloping rear roofline.

    If i was a Fiat 128 fan I'd be down on that at 15K.
    Certainly better to drive than other cars of that era.

    I did have a Fiat 500 ( self confessed Italian as opposed to cookie cutter Japanese fan)
