    G'day to all,
    just a quick 1 , feeling the water to sell my ride and wondering what would be a good price to sell my '96 CBR 250rr Honda import, MC22, in above average condition.
    New rubber front & rear, as well as chain set, front disc pads, wheel bearings, oil, filters just done.
    original fairings replaced with after markets.
    20,000 k's on the clock. Rides & handles like it's new.
    Cheers Lap 67.

    Haven't made a decision as to sell or keep. This bike gives me so much joy, allows me to forget my physical problems, for a short time.
    Yes the money would help with medical expenses but going for a ride on a fast , fun bike is a good mental pick me up.
    Tough call for me, will keep y'all posted. As for the price....'96 mc22 (Honda MPE) getting hard to come by, not sure of sale price as yet.
    Cheers.

    If in doubt, hold onto it. The time will come to move it on at some point though.

    I think your right. I would more than likely kick my self later if I sold. It can only increase in value.
    Thanks mate for the butt kick.

    So many of these bikes have been destroyed by "track day" and "racing" pffft, that good road versions will become scarce. To say nothing of lunatics, like me, that use them for project bikes. :)

    Behind every useful invention was a Lunatic (For better word).
    "Lunatic" a thinker / doer who works outside the "Square ''.

    Please do not ever let it go to anyone that mentions the words "Streetfighter" or "Cafe Racer" or "Brown seat"....

    Made up my mind, not going to sell, couldn't bare the thought of some one taking it away and flogging it round a track, or some Lunatic putting knobys on it and tearing thru the bush, or worse still a Postie buying it , painting it RED , hanging paniers of the sides full of mail and filling my mail box with HA HA junk.
    I NEED A BEX AND A LAY DOWN.

    haha keep it. I saw a post on reddit where a lady was going to sell her clean original VFR400 to fund another new bike and everyone in the comments told her not too and sure enough she kept it. There were even people offering or asking if she wants to let it go to dm them haha. She didn't really know or care much whether it was a collectors or not, its just that its an older bike and she wants a newer more reliable bike.
