I think I have a couple of redundant yellow springs in my garage if they’re any use to whoever buys it.

Anyone know/recognise this bike? It's a bit tatty and missing some bits but probably worth it for the forks and shock.

:sick: Those sarnies look like they are filled with dog sh1t. :lol:

I saw that wheel spindle a couple of months ago. £120 -£200 is about average for a Ti spindle. Not cheap by any means and if you going to do it then one may as well change the rear and swingarm spindles too. Not much point in only doing the front. Titan are asking too much there as that is on the high side for a front but then they are a buisness and out to rip people make money. I can't see them selling that many at that price. £100 -£150 would be more realistic. Actually if it was £100 ish I would have bought it when I had seen it. Instead I have polished up my wheel spindle and coated it in heat resistant lacquer so hopefully it does not rust whch is the main reason I purchase Ti, not becuase of the weight. That's just an added bonus.

The raw material can be bought for about £50 - £60 for the fatter longer rear and if bought in bulk even cheaper and then the time to machine it. So £180 is way too high. Ti as a raw material is not necessarily that expensive to buy but because it's Ti and classed as something special then the mark up for the end product is high. It's bit like charging more for a limited edition artworks because of the exclusivity.

Personally thought this was quite a reasonable price and looks clean.
In saying that there are probably some minor issues

That is a good price. I'm trying to work out what that thing is next to the rear brake resevoir. And it has been down the road. Scratches on clutch casing a small ding on the tank. I'm guessing the crash protectors where fitted afterwards. There may even be sme colour differance in the BLues. It's no the easiest colour to match that one and if you look at the mudgurd against the fairing. Still....for a late model VTR that is a good price.

The thing next to the brake resivior is the gravel from the driveway/path.
You are seeing right thought the bike
If you look at the top right hand corner you will see the gravel

So it is :thumbup: Unlike me to notice something lke that. Intresting how the camera has focused on that even though it's furthur away. It looks crystal clear and bang on focus.
