So, you own an "allegedly" brand new zero miles 1992 Fireblade, what do you do to advertise it.

Do you:

i) take lots of detailed photos showing the pristine nature of all of the components and how well it has been kept over the last 29 years with a well written ad describing what you have? or:

ii) Wheel the bike out into a muddy yard, take a few shit quality photos write a short "I know what I have" type of advert?

Obviously we'll look past the obvious signs of use like the key marks on the top yoke, the fact that the white writing on the ignition barrel seems to have worn away, the signs of wear on the under tray, those being the things obvious from the shit photos. I suspect a closer inspection will show even more signs of use as well.

But the riders seat and the pillion aren't the same colour. I'm sure Honda wouldn't let that little detail get passed them.

But his 'brand new fireblade requires a different mobile number to be called than his other ads? Hmmmm. Burner phone much?

Something smells fishy and I'm not talking about baldricks Apple Crumble

I also love the irony in him selling his 200,000 mile bmw 'due to lack of use' 

Mate I think that's one of the biggest cases of overuse you could have!

Not to get all technical and stuff, but Google "1992 Fireblade", and that does look like the standard colors. (I thought I remembered, but Google confirmed)

....first thing i noticed was the bt56 tyres, which must be around 20 years old now. :blink:

incidentally i daren't open the ebay links since all here at work use ebay and regardless of whether we're signed in or not it shows what's been looked at, with resultant merciless pisstaking...

Is there anything crying out for something like a vtr thou engine more than this ? IL4 would be too wide

Keep it true the the original 2-stroke ringa-ding-ding single.

A CR500 or KX500 should fix it.

You've got no ambition, have you?

And yes, those things that you could fit your head into, just on the inside of the fuel tank, they are the throttle bodies.

Yeah, I saw a few posts on that build. 
 

I was thinking more stealth. When everyone is laughing at the funny little car, you gun the hidden CR500 and take off like the roadrunner with his arse on fire.

It will obviously rev its tits off, but not with any flatslide carbs, more the standard CV ones it's clearly fitted with..
