    It's secondhand, they're all unknown. Chances are the motor is fine, they just crashed it. Then again, the TL1000R in ACT busted the clutch slave cylinder out of the engine - possibly the chain smashed it up about the casing.

    I was looking at one for $650, but didn’t hear back. My budget is small, especially given the second bike is a yz250 (combine them into a 250 2-stroke road bike). Though I was thinking about a hyosung Gtr250 instead: upside-down forks, twin front brakes, but ugly frame...

    The seller and I have spoken a few times, its been sitting for years and needs a heap of work, not worth parting at that price

    lol... looks like it will sit for a few more years then... some people have unrealistic ideas on what the bucket of bolts they have is worth... I am beginning to think I may be better off parting out my Across rather than spending any more effort on it... just not sure at present but it doesnt owe me a lot as it is... I might just undercoat the repairs, assemble it and sell it as is too

    Honda Spada - crashed and not running.

    Don't know if this one has popped up yet.
    Had a look at it, but they decided they wouldn't budge off $250, despite listing as negotiable and agreeing to a lesser price earlier. I figured that even if not a runner, it would be good for parts and at a pinch, scrap metal for what was left over.
    Parts missing, can't be seen running (sitting for 5 years).

    Well the little woman in my life promised me some action in the old bedroom if my bike sells online.

    So here I am sending out an S.O.S to all the brothers out there who totally get the power a woman has over a bloke in that department. Even more so when it's been awhile since the old bowling balls have been taken out for a good polishing! You get what I am saying?

    Since I reckon I am a cluey kinda bloke, I figuere if advertisers can blatantly use S*x in order to sell thier products, then surely the same formula will work for me bike, right?

    Only difference with this advert is I will be the one getting me some and boy am I more excited than a kid at a Maccas Birthday party!

    I just know there has gotta be a bloke out there who would enjoy riding this baby as much as I enjoy a good old lap round the block with the little woman.

    So if ya feeling for me or your just sitting there having a good old yack at my predicament then at least do me a favour will ya and share me ad.


    Here's a few details about her for your curiosity:

    *Unlike the Missus the bike is guarenteed to turn heads when it goes past.

    *Naked frame on her......... Can't remember what the year was I last saw the wife in the same state... at least with the lights on.

    *Genuine Silver motor and has had a bit of work done on her.......new battery, new forks, electricals, full service done............Got the wife is booked in for a complete overhaul next year!

    *12 months rego...........Unfortunately the guarentee ran out on the Missus 12 mths ago.

    *Low k's ............. Wife had clocked up quite a bit of mileage before I met her.

    Genuine enquiries only. No couriers. Won't last long.. can't say same for the wife, cow will probably outlive me.

    If you are interested shoot me a message... In the meatime I will be searching for me best pair of Y-fronts in anticipation of a sale.
