    Due to an unforseen circumstance I'm currently left with very little alternative other than this below thread.

    So i'm looking at the prospect of selling her current bike.

    It's a 2004 Yamaha YZF-R1 in Lava red, the best and most desireable colour scheme.
    It has 7500 miles on it and is honestly honestly IMMACULATE, in each and every sense of the word.
    You could pass this thing off as almost brand new. Is has been fully serviced about 6 weeks back when purchased and was stripped completely by me for cleaning/sorting when i collected.
    It was also given an MOT at the time along with new tyres. These have now been used on track, so are a bit bobbled, but they've done literally 100 miles or so in today.

    The pics really do not do it justice, but they're a decent repesentation of course. Every single part of the bike was stripped, cleaned, greased, lubed, polished and checked, from removing the tank, to taking wheels out and removing discs so i could clean the back of the discs.

    WU04 GYJ is the reg.

    I can't put into words how gutted I am to have to have this discussion with you, this was supposed to be the bike that lives in the conservatory until the end of time.

    The price is 4500 to you lot and i'm honestly not shifting from that. I paid 4800 for it and have put many hours of cleaning and polishing into it, along with adding a GI-ProX gear indicator at a cost of 120.

    Full album below.

    Steve, sorry to hear about circumstances, not sure what they are but if your selling that then it's got me concerned... I think I'll have to buy it just to keep it in the family, as it were.

    I'm very seriously interested. But you know I'm a demon haggler

    So let's talk tonight?

    I'll swap it for a green fish and I'm being generous.

    Can't believe you've done this, this quickly, I think you should have waited a few weeks.
