I know the ad says 1998, but it's 1999. Nice bike with good kit, although at 130mm the forks are a little much.

Interestingly this sold by auction for £253 However within 24 hours it's been re-listed as a buy it now for £349.99 by the same seller ???

I did ask him if it only reached the £253 why it suddenly was now at £350 bar a penny and his reply was

Hi buddy, yeah it ended on that price but the winning bidder lived in long beach, usa. And there is no way im posting a bike overseas.. Seems to be more and more time wasters on ebay these days. As for the buy it now price.. £350 is what i see to be a fair second hand price for it as it has so many new parts that almost add up to this alone.
Many thanks simon



I think he may own it for some time

£253 is top money in my mind, coupled with the fact that it's been ridden on 130mm forks and that spells not worth £350. One day people will learn that they can't add up the price of the parts they've bought and assume the bike with be worth that amount more than standard.

Im a bit confused over the fork description :?
Quote:
Upgraded 130mm marzocchi z3 forks with z1 damper rods.. New oil etc.. Set up to a slow mellow feel.. Unlike the old forks that felt like a pogo stick.


Damper rods? does he mean the rebound cartridges :? and if so how you got 100mm Z1's to fit in a 130mm ill never know :shock:


slow mellow feel

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: What a doosh
