    Prices on 2strokes are on the up so depending on what you pay you should get your cash back recommissioning bikes can be expensive but as its a Suzuki motor parts should be OK to get it depends on how hands on you are

    Either way don't let one go, on an other 2T forum got to tell you the UK is going to dry up with those bikes I believe sooner not later according to the buying frenzy that's going on most just don't see it .

    Update......Traveled over to the big island Friday eve so up early sat morning to go veiw the Chesterfield ? What a disappointment that was ? I'd say the images he sent were taken 15 years ago ? A complete shitter that was supposedly mint so we promptly said it's not for me pal..proceeds to Rs250 number 2 this bike turned out to exactly how the guy said....3800 miles from new,panels all in good condition with minor marks,new tyres and chain n sprocket,new battery not fitted all it needs is recommissioning and a nose cone Decal to to been painted as it received a heavy scratch been transported....managed to chipmhim a 100 off asking price to

    need a tool kit and original manuals as he carnt find em but I do M.o.t papers work to back up miles ect ect
