    Huh?

    History: 0 bids
    I'd guess not. If you already had a Z400 that you wanted to tidy up, it
    /might/ be worth buying it for the parts, but otherwise...

    Does he really think that third photo (of a couple of boxes of bits) is
    going to encourage anyone to bid?

    Ace was seen penning the following ode to ... whatever:
    Mebbe Petrolcan is really worried about the availability of spares?
    If that. My guess would be a lot lower, actually...

    Ace typed:

    "belived to be jenuine"
    and has the benefit of,
    "re cromeing"

    The thing is, I'd actually be tempted if it were a more reasonable
    price (like about 300 quid) because I'm looking for another project
    and he's done the expensive stuff. But I expect he's set the reserve
    close to 750.

    For about 300-350 I'd have a punt, take it home, rootle around and see
    if it could be built up, and if not, flog the various bits and bobs
    individually- the exhausts have got to be worth a ton a side to
    someone, for example, and we all know what decent mudguards fetch.

    But he thinks that because he's spent a grand, it's worth a grand....
