Hi all,

I don't post on here much, however I thought I would offer you first refusal on my bike before I chuck it on the dreaded ebay for a tyre kicker to come and nose around.

To give you some background information on the bike, I bought it as standard from someone who didn't have the time to take on a project.

It was a winter project that I have only just finished.

I have removed all the plastics, welded a rear seat loop on, fabricated a new seat and had it covered in diamond stitch faux leather (seat has enough space for two hence the rear foot pegs.

Euro sport exhausts were added with straight through pipes and custom fabricated baffles for necessary back pressure.

Aftermarket speedometer.

Refurbished carbs.

Deleted the bulky air box and replaced with pod filters.

Custom made wire tidy and battery box.

Stripped and powder coated wheels.

Full engine service.

Flipped handle bars and new brown grips.

Cbr600rr (1998) handle bar controls.

New levers.

Upgraded twin piston Suzuki gl500 Pistons

Aftermarket odometer - deleted cluster.

Aftermarket lights all round to suit new look.

New final drive flange.

Engine painted.

Tank painted in landrover colours.

Exhausts heat wrapped.

New wheel bearings.

Bad points:

Now I have only just finished the project so the bike is not mot'd or taxed.
However I have taken it up and down my road and seem great.

Rear light needs a new bulb.

Kill switch needs to be wired in (I will try and sort this before sale if I have time)

That's everything that I can think of.

My reason for sale is simple. I am buying a house and need the money!

Should you have any questions feel free to call me on the number below.

Grant - 07970350115

Now for pics. I will get more uploaded soon!

Nice looking bike, would help if you put in your location and a price indicator, that will stop the "I'll give you 500 quid and my old Honda 90" brigade and let genuine buyers get an idea of how far they are going to have to transport it so they can factor that into any offers.

And yes, more pictures will help loads. Good luck with the sale. cheers
