    7k? Yeah nah
    It's not "Concourse" if it doesn't have the original fucking muffler, is it? Plus all the other coating/painting bullshit means it's just a bike. Don't use words you don't understand. Fucking sob-story peddling, con-artist, lying sack of pond-dwelling trademe "trader".

    WTF is partial brake fluid replacement? I ran out and didn't bother getting more? I pissed in it because it's the right colour?

    What did it clean the "neutral sensor" with? A fucking hammer?

    Well I'm chuffed I pulled the pin on the Bimota & bought a classic BMW car instead, as a severance present to myself from the business.

    I really enjoyed that rant.

    Chances are he got it for zip. Amazingly low kms if valid though.

    Thumbs down Hmm this emoji is by accident and I can't work out how to delete it.

    But obviously, from what bikes you day are cool on this thread; well that's got to be a shining endorsement. I'll be knocking on Roger's door tomorrow demanding to buy his BB1.

    they get water in them and corrode. easy enough to replace.

    Superficially that bike looks pretty good. He does say in the blurb it comes wiht the stock piple (which you would want).

    Given its from the UK you would want to give it the fright of its life over next winter in terms of stripdown and inspection. If you want to ride it you would at least need to rebuild the calipers/master cylinders and replace the brake lines (20 years old rubber ones? Yeah nah). I'd want to look at the steering head bearings and strip and grease the rear linkage. plus a set of tyres.

    I've seen them going for between 4 and 6 depending on condition - I reckon $5.5 to $6k would buy this but you'd have to spend some money. The really hard to get bits (fairing, tank) are all present and correct though.

    My favourite paintscheme on these is the first one (white/blue/orange) or that "urban tiger" one - there was one on tardme recently in that scheme.

    I love these by the way. A mate bought one brand spankers in 1994 and I had just finished Uni, didnt have a bike and he rolls round home on it and says - take it for a thrash. Fuck yeah I did.

    It's a fox eye and it's yellow and purple. It's the second facelift of the first Fireblade. It's hideous.

    Speaking of Hideous - the brand new GSXR1000 body and graphics - WTF, hello 1997. Still the hardcore fans will love it, and by all accounts it's a ripper of a bike.

    Edited to reference the blue ones.

    I think the black R model with red graphics looks fantastic...except for the blue anodized forks.
