    '04 Futura for sale. Gloss Black. Moving. Must Sell Quick. Lots of Mods. *SOLD*

    *SOLD*




    I am the original (and only) owner that purchased this wonderful bike new in '04. I am moving back to CA, and only have room for 1 bike, so the Futura, which hasn't seen much action lately, must go. NEED THIS BIKE SOLD BEFROE THE END OF MARCH.
    I've dropped a ton of money on upgrades on this baby.
    Clean title, but currently not registered.
    Brand new Yuasa battery and Iridium plugs. Runs great!

    Video of starting and reving engine: https://youtu.be/A2TJhuRVCPY

    Pease note, bike is in Columbus, OH (NOT Atlanta)

    House and Trailer kept... NOT outside.

    It's all in the details...

    Approx. 23,000 miles
    Custom Gloss Black w/ tasteful Aprilia graphics (see pics). The Hard bags are matching, in good shape, with all internal hardware.
    Smoked turn signals and tail lights (10%).
    Stock seat perf-leather covered by Sargent (see pics), foam unmolested... so still super comfy, just looks MUCH better!
    6k HID headlights
    Carbon Fiber rear hugger/chain guard.
    Carbon Fiber front fender, with gloss black fender included.
    Carbon Fiber tank pad.
    Carbon Fiber license plate frame.
    Hel-Bars, powder-coated gloss black.
    Triple clamp powder coated gloss black.
    Billet reservoir covers brake/clutch.
    Rizoma billet rear brake reservoir.
    Billet fork adjusters.
    Motovation weighted bar ends, with Pro Grips 714 (my favorite, super-comfy).
    RhinoMoto front fork sliders. One is missing in the pic (oops), but I do have it.
    Passenger pegs mounts powder-coated silver (no more non-matching bronze or whatever the oem was).
    Billet Lion-head swing-arm pivot covers.
    Titanium fasteners in various places... Brake calipers, Heli-Bars, fork lowers, etc...
    12v cigarette adapter in dash for power.
    Bridgestone BT-016 tires. Fronts in great shape, rear is starting to flatten out.
    Bef "semi-full" exhaust, CERAMIC COATED(!)... sounds awesome, better than my Tuono w/ Leo's.
    Eagle Screens (Australia) "Sport" smoked windscreen (couple inches shorter than stock for better wind flow).
    Factory Pro Evo shift star kit... Shifts soooo smooth it's crazy... like butter. Smoother than my Tuono with the same kit.
    Mille intake boot.
    Evo clutch slave
    CRG levers (not Asian copies)... shorty for the brake side, long for the clutch side.
    Stainless Steel brake/clutch lines. Speigler iirc.
    Radial masters for both brake and clutch with integrated reservoirs (from the Duc 999/749). Dead easy to bleed with a 6mm wrench, no mess.
    Set up for GP shift, but can return to standard shift no problem.
    Lightened flywheel (weight removed).
    15/43 gearing
    Mille fork lowers (fully adjustable) powder-coated black, and tubes DLC coated (like Öhlins' TiN, only better) w/ Öhlins internals and 4-pad calipers. Used the tops of the mille forks for the red color instead of silver.
    Wilbers top-of-the-line shock with High & Low speed compression, remote preload, etc.
    DID gold chain.
    Mosul oil, stock filter.

    Oh and of course, the brown connector was replaced with a bus connector a long time ago. Also, the plastic fuel quick-disconnect was replaced with an all-metal one years ago as well, some time before an actual recall happened. Both done over 10 years ago...

    As one can see, no expense was spared, as I never intended on selling, ever.
    Only blemishes ares on the left side dark plastic under the clutch reservoir (from fluid spills), and a couple more scratches in the front fairing and tank.
    Runs absolutely great.
    Miscellaneous spare parts, including hard bag parts, and some body fairings included.

    This bike must sell... it can't go with me!
    An absolutely beautiful bike that turns heads and gets comments everywhere, no joke!

    $3250 MUST SELL

    No, I will not part anything out... no time.

    Just added pics of the (included) gloss black front fender and matching Panniers:

    That's a beautiful bike Tim. Hands down it has to be the best sorted one I've ever seen.

    I've got a buddy locally that's on his second Futura. He loves the thing, and tours on it over his newer Kaw Concours or his Honda Blackbird.

    Best of luck with the sale, and the move.

    Thanks, John! I appreciate it. I do love this bike, and hate to see it go, but that's what life throws at us...

    Hey Ron, how's it going?!? I sent the seat in to Sergeant. It took a rather large box, lol...

    Hi, I've got an English mate who has just moved to Texas, he's not on the forum yet, but is dead keen on your bike after I told him about it, Mike's his name and I'd like to get you two in touch.
    That O.K with you?
    Cheers,
    Klav,
