Beverley is about 4 miles from me !

Praying it's not somebody I know who is supposedly buying this ! It's been doing the rounds for ages..a few of us on here have seen it in the 'flesh'  & not a pretty sight.

Why?


It just didn't look like it was worth it Kev.. You would really need to see it in the flesh to appreciate it. Things like the chrome tank panels look awful even though they have  rechromed. Just a personal opinion though but a lot of money for what it is and has been touted around auctions etc in the UK for well  over a year. For an example look at the bodgy plate screwed/rivetted to the clutch cover?  My fear is a guy I know in Beverley is restoring a CB72 and just sold a 5-Speed CB450 and looking for his next Honda project.!

There's a bum for every seat Ash. I hope it is sold as I'm sick of it coming up on every eBay bomber parts search. The thing is dog rough for clean running bike money. That will cost way past 10k by the time it's finished to a good standard. Only says the sale is ended due to not having it anymore. With a bit of luck someone stole it in the dark, then seeing what they had the following morning set fire to it. ;D

I think it probably sold as early this morning it said "Deposit taken from a man in Beverley"...luckily, it's not my mate in Beverley who is in the frame for one as he just contacted me.
