|For anyone who's interested - I sold this today for 175 to a commercial buyer, who will go on to make his meat on the sale.
Bemused and frustrated at the lack of interested i went for one of two available 2nd hand grease-shop Brighton sellers.
Bottom line is he paid 175 but knows AS I KNOW its worth one hell of a lot more - this shit was mint ( SEE DISCRIPT BELOW) . i presume he'll be selling it for 300+. my initial asking here was £333.
It hurt letting it go - my dad died 3 months ago and i sold it to him, it was given back to me upon his death.
For all the races and rides, the friends kept and lost, the 1990's - racing and hill riding, theres nothing i can say, you know the times and its not about the bikes, they're our icons, nothing more.
