Dear god.

The ONLY thing on that advert that gave a crumb of hope were the words 'One Off' ...... If I thought there were more of these out there I wouldn't sleep at night!


He has anohter 400-4 for sale. Low miles...37,000 is 'low miles' apparantly. But.....and this was the best bit...

"James may from top gear actually owns one of these and these bikes have won fromula 3 and formula 2 races and even won the Isle of Man races . These bikes were only made for 1 year as is the 1978"

which makes his red one worth 6K.

Oh..and it's an 'ex film' bike....from a film I have never heard of, and when I google it...all I get is multiple ads from this same guy selling this bike and an Indian Bullet used in the film....

Think I will pass....... or puke.

That's an eBay scam. I know of the girl that owns the bike.... I'm not sure if she is in on the scam as well though..I enquired about the ex film 400/4 just to be nosey and got a right load of abuse hurled at me.... Which I promptly hurled back at them 😁😁😁😁😁

It take all sorts to make a world I guess. Look at Tracey Emins half made bed or Damien Hirsts pickled sheep, in what way are they works of art? 

Talking of pickling, I think you'd need to be pickled to buy that, but perhaps someone might?
Now where did I put that 10mm socket?

. I think it's a scary picture Phil, not only does he look a Nob but would you buy a bike off of that man.... I certainly wouldn't.

His wife has probably been on his case to get rid of it, the conversation must have gone something like - "yes love, it's up for sale with lots of nice photos on eBay"......
