Hi everyone

Post by Parky265 »

Hello from Yorkshire. I’m a serial bike restorer and collector with a range of bikes from. Peugeot moped to a Pan European via 2 strokes and an old Ducati. I just bought a 2000 VTR with 23k in fairly decent condition for just £700. The noise it makes sold it. Wow.
I’m sure I’ll have loads of questions once I start riding it when the skies clear and the roads dry out a bit.

I almost live on eBay and never seen one in good condition for that sort of money.

Must truly be a case of right place at right time!!
