Ha ha ha. A late model fettled and sorted one ' for reasonable money ' don't really go in the same sentence. You may get one for a Barrow full of Krugerrands or uncut diamonds. Or you could get a tuber for reasonable money that NEEDS to be fettled and sorted. These are your choices when it comes to tuber ownership.

If you get an early original ,you`ll want a comfy seat , then the bubbled paint sorting, then the new set of tyres, ali swing arm, bearings , engine mount, oil pump drive gear and whilst the motors apart etc etc etc. Nice when done though. Wait with £6k and see what comes along.

That nuclear blue / white X1 lightning strike. Offer him 5k and see what happens. It won't need too much doing to it. A spondon front mount, Lucky hands oil pump drive gear and later gaskets and you'll have a good 'un............ hopefully.

Sorry Wob, I just seen this... I'm pretty sure Ymale is referring to a tuber on Facebook UKBEG where a member posted it for sale...a few times. It had orange flames everywhere possible and was not to everyone's taste (noticeable by the amount of cheeky comments posted) the seller was quite vocal to the sarcasm and criticism. It made for fun reading. Its sold sorry, so you've missed out.
