    It's not to replace it Dave I'm just not useing it and it's a shame with looking after my dad just don't have time to do distance and that's all I used the capo for I've room to mothball it but it's never going to go up massive in value and thought if someone was looking for a well sorted one I'd let it go if not I'll stick it in a bubble till I have more time .

    The treatment on my shoulder is ongoing and is a lot better thanks to Pippa I now have a pt instructor twice a week that is doing he's best to make val a widow it's not pain free and may never be but I can now ride a bike if it's warm

    What a beauty of a bike. Take it to a bike show and all the manufacturers with concept bikes would just pack up and go home.

    That's a shame Geoff, she is a stunner. With all the mods I still have to do to mine - (black wheels, Paint job, panniers, sump etc) - Somebody will snap it up no doubt. As you say she needs to be ridden not stored!
    I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy
