Part of me wants to rescue it, but I suspect there'd be too much expense in getting it back on the road.

Looks alot better than mine did when I bought it.

Cheers,

I fancy it too but the reason I'll never go for it is that I have NO SKILLS when it comes to all things mechanical. The only thing I can do with any competance - is reach for a Visa card - bank manager permitting.

In this case it would take far too much money to get it professionally rebuilt I suspect

Yes - even though the seller reckons all the necessary bits are there I reckon there's enough wear and tear to put a few hundred onto the bill. It's already bid to over £500 with four days to go too.

Missed a beauty a couple of weeks ago - original condition 1990 in red/silver with 25k miles sold for £1300. That, I suspect, was a bargain.

Guess we have a different mindset over here in the states. That looks, to me, to be an easy project. If it were over here, it would already be sold.....

Ah beardo thats probably because you know what you are doing with bike restoration. Me? No clue so happy to stand aside, watch in admiration (and pay) those who do . . .

My skills lie elsewhere

I wasn't born with that knowledge. It accumulated over time. We all start out with an empty cup. ;)

I'm not so skilled, too.
I guess it was a common problem for the lawyers :mrgreen: .
However, she does'nt seem having so bad shape.
If she was closer, I would try...
