Hi,
i have had this hanging on my wall waiting to be built up for far too long, but to be honest i will probably never get round to it so i have decided to let someone else have the pleasure of building and riding it,

I'd be interested in the forks if you decide to sell seperatley.
Not just saying this (honest!) but imagine you would get more £ that way

you will almost always get more by split and sell. I buy complete bikes off ebay and sell the constituent parts and often make 25-40% profit. Helps fund the stuff I really want :-)

Your call fella, erm - do a search for previous sales on the bay & in forum classifieds. Wold Ranger (sp) is selling a similar bike at mo - should be easy to find. People suggested 350 for full bike (had some nice kit on it) or £500 in pieces. Make of that what you will.
£40-50 for the forks?

I bought some F3 forks from Al on this forum for £50 plus £8 postage. Nice forks.
