Sell the car - this is it.

Right - here it is. The bike that took years off my life to put together. Selling because it really could do with a better home as I'm saving to get married and emigrate.

The bike has cost a fortune to build and get close to as perfect as possible. Comes with components you'll rarely see and cost a mortgage in themselves. I could split this but it would make me cry so would rather it pootle away in one piece. This one's expensive btw.

Just an update: Getting quite a few mails about splitting. Not going to split this I'm afraid as I don't want a load of redundant parts sitting here as that's not the idea :(
