Where is it?
First the text:
It's a 1990, has done about 33,000 miles and had 4 owners. MOT tested last week.
The modifications, starting at the front.
XR650R forks with internal preload spacers to stiffen the springs and reduce their ride height fitted.
XR650R yokes with an aluminium spacer on the steering stem.
Fat Triumph style grips.
Rubber lock stops to suit
Original BMW cross spoke wheel with adaptors to suit forks.
320mm supermoto disc and Honda calliper with adaptor to fit BMW wheel.
HEL braided brake line.
Koso DBR01 console.
Twin plugged heads.
LH rocker cover has an oil filler added to it.
The home made side stand is not auto retracting but has a Honda rubber tongue to do the job.
Stainless Y piece. A proper Y, not the cheaper bent T type.
R80g/s seat with GS subframe modified to suit.
Progressive rear shock
Triumph TT600 carbon end can.
Unknown rear mudguard.
Acerbis rear light.
The good bits are the mods. It starts and runs well, is reliable, and looks OK from a distance.
The bad bit is its general overall condition, there's extensive surface corrosion on the frame, swinging arm and engine. The down pipes aren't brilliant but they don't leak. The ideal would be stripping and refurbishing it but because of where I live that would be very inconvenient so it's time for it to go.
Price? I've not much of an idea about that yet so make me a sensible offer.
Where is it?
I'll be taking it to the south of England, down the M6, next week and don't mind reasonable detours for anyone who is relatively interested in buying it.
Currently? Slightly to the west of Skye. Next week, starting on Saturday, heading south down the M6 to the Newbury area with a side trip to Norfolk. Reasonable diversions for viewings are do-able, as long as both parties consider the detour as reasonable.
Is the second spark plug in the head disconnected?
I really like that...no idea what to offer but it'll probably be cheaper to get a gs1100.
Swap ya for a barely run in ER6F?
Yes the bottom plugs are disconnected. Two schools thought about whether twin plugging is worth it.
And go on, go on, go on, you know you want to. I'll even deliver it if the price is right. It does need a lot of work, easy work, but a lot.
