    Your spares are possibly [1] cheap depending on a number of factors
    including; red wine to blood ratio, how many in the "Secret Stash" and
    if it is raining.

    [1] TOG's spare price guide was an alternative to a "really good cup of
    tea" when Douglas Adams was looking for a motive force behind the Heart
    of Gold spaceship.

    Oh shit, you said side panel. Those numbers are for fuel tanks.


    1976-77 C model - 4 solid ones with the capacity decal superimposed over
    one of them

    1977-78 D model - 3 solid ones and the capacity decal forms the 2nd
    speedblock from the rear, so you could say 4 also.

    Though the sidepanel decals for both models look the same they are
    different.

    1978 onwards E+F models only had the capacity decals on the sidepanels.

    My spares are *never* impossibly cheap.[/QUOTE]

    Doesn't that depend on whether they're incoming or outgoing?

    Because this is the third such bloody silly query in a fortnight, two of
    which came from you.

    Think - do you really believe that there's a Secret Treasure Trove of
    spare parts, all at impossibly cheap prices, that people know of?

    If there was, don't you think they'd tell us?

    Oh, no, they wouldn't would they....

    Because.....

    The Knowledge of the Sacred Stash is passed down from storesman to
    storesman, through the Holy Order of the Brown Coat, isn't it?[/QUOTE]

    Aaaah, the infamous knorredge. So that explains those scruffy
    characters one sees pootling around London on Honda Cubs with a
    clipboard attached: they're doing a circuit of known sightings of
    Honda's finest for study and enlightenmemt.

    Don't think we haven't spotted your trick to show off even *more*
    knowledge!

    BORG came up with the following;:
    I would guess that TOG didn't mean ebay _was_ the end of the world, just
    that a very easy, very quick search would give you a good idea of what
    people are paying for stuff in the real world. He showed you a reasonable
    way to get a possible valuation.

    If you cba to research for yourself, why should anyone else do it for you?
    The actual value of a SOC90 might be a lot more to some than others and it's
    up to you to decide whether it's worth your time, money and effort to do it
    up. and to what level to do it up to.

    ebay lets you see what's selling and what's not selling, the possible
    variations of what's available in the marketplace already and whether yours
    is worth it, to you, or not. I know of few other sites that would give you
    as much information for so little effort.

    Yes!
    Because if you want to pass the new computerised MOT then you can only do it
    with 'genuine' parts
    for a machine which is no longer legal.(1)
    A brand new genuine machine is not capable of passing the MOT(2) so any
    deviation will be punished.

    C90 rat - three half bikes hammered into one.
    (1) The C90 was eliminated from the UK/Europe range because of changes to
    the emissions regulations which it cannot meet.
    (2) Due to changes in the rules.

    Rubbish, there are plenty of pattern parts that will pass an MOT, they
    might not last as long as genuine but they'll do the job.

  14. Point of Order, btw.

    Why would an 'Onda storeman be concerned with or even gaf about Yamaha
    decals anyway?

    It was, I'm sure, the funniest thing that's ever been posted on this
    group, and the fact that you don't think so only makes it more so.

    Completely Brilliant!
    Thanks mate - I haven't laughed so much in ages.
    And my Granny was born very near to Wales, so the lack of sense of humour
    can't be genetic
