I never thought this would happen but my Fut is up for sale, along with all the spares and accessories I have collected over the years. Advert is here.
It's been a combination of things from the practical - starting my own business and still having a job means I have no time, and my health issue last year means I have to put time aside for exercise - mountain biking as it happens.
It's not been helped by the predicament of one of my very good friends who nearly died coming off his Ducati in July and is still facing a long, long road to recovery. Having ridden on the road for 25 years and visiting him in hospital it makes me think about things a bit more than I would.
In any case the Futura has sat in the garage all year and with money being tight I couldn't even afford to put it on the road, and it needs to be used.
There is an outside chance I might put it back on the road next year if it doesn't sell, as I'm not in a hurry yet, but it's unlikely.
Anyway, thanks to you all for your help, advice, meet ups, and friendship over the years.
The website will stay live but I don't have much time to add to it right now. If anyone wants to get in touch and I can discuss arranging access.
The bike is advertised here.
No sarky comments about how much I'm asking from the tyre kickers among you.
