I'm not a fan of the price for an old RF600, but I think that as a bit of fun, I like it. It's a £700 bike though.

If he'd shoehorned (shouldn't there be plenty of room actually) the CBR mill in the RF and kept the rest of the bike stock looking - then I could see the point.

Not Ebay, but a facebook classified. I'm looking for a mini cooper S, then this little gem popped up. Seller wants £400 for the hearing aid beige, were shit when they were new in 1994, wheels...

I've seen that before. He's definitely persistent. The price hasn't even dropped.

Oh god, this mong is about 8 miles from me,  I will set up a corden so they dont get out into the surrounding villages.... 

You might want to take a dictionary / phrase book, as English doesn't appear to be their strong point :blink:

In saying that, 'renult' (Renault?) and 'dimmer' (Dimma?) would cross French off the possibilities as well ;)

I can't see a NOs bottle, but the owner is clearly on gas :blink:

Get stock wheels for £100, take of those monstrosities and flog 'em to 'WheelWhores' for £400+?

The easy option is to knock the price down for crimes against taste...

Lovely.


I'm clearly getting old...bikes of that era just look right. The  proportions are bob on.

Modern bikes either look like something from Michael Bay's imagination or are a jumble of lines, exposed pipes and have no "flow".

Now this I don't get, but see a lot, I'm not great at shpellin but when it's written on the item that you are posting for sale and you still get it wrong?

I often see Lucky Strike liveried bikes advertised as "Lucky Stripe", the seller should be beaten to death with his own severed arm.

I've always loved the Yam fox eye bikes.

That looks nice n clean, period correct aftermarket Micron,  those god-awful tank and bag thingies everybody had before Kriega but otherwise unmolested.

That'd be a nice thing to have.

Never going to be worth a fortune but doesn't cost one either.

 

Oh it's just doon in Dunoon. Might have a nosey at that.

Streetfighter cliche parts?

  1. Single swinger? Check.
  2. 916 'style'  underseat exhausts? Check.
  3. Polished frame? Check.

Knob! :lol:

Points deducted for no knuckledusters on the footpegs, not a single bullet in sight and for having normal brake levers. The lack of sharpened points on the bar ends and fork tops is disappointing, though the blue bar ends claw back a modicum of Back Street Hero points.

 A poor effort, 4/10. See me after school.

I know the chap that built this, in fact I remember it when it was a lovely Black RRN Fireblade, alas with gold plated rearsets!

Once it was 'streetfightered, and built to a decent standard, he crashed it a couple of times and rebuilt it again because my friend was a bit of a liability on the roads! - I told him it was up for sale again and I asked him if he would buy it back abnd he said 'No way, its tried to kill me twice already!'

EDITED TO ADD: The original clocks had about 30k on em back in about '99 when it was first built
