Yeah a mate just sent me this. Absolutely awesome. Heading for a big price tag... and rightly so. So far out of my league it hurts.

The description seems to written by 2 people, starts of all matter of fact, but then becomes quite personal. Slightly choked by the end of it

I saw this at £400, what was the starting bid, it's £1800 now, as said above, it's so far out of my reach its actually upsetting, but what a piece of history!

I'd probably sell my 1987 vauxhall nova to fund it, but it's going to go for way more than my car is worth!

It reads like it was written by his Dad, Jim.

I'm out of the bidding too unfortunately.

I doubt if this one will be on e-bay anytime soon. Another iconic bike from 'Dirt'.
