Hi everyone, I'm looking to get a Thundercat, waiting for right one!

Post  rogs84 on Tue Feb 09 2010, 16:51

Hi everyone,

I'm on the look out for a decent second hand cat, having passed by DAS last May since then I've been pottering around on derbi senda still.

This bike is close to me in Devon but have now noticed the wheels are silver where as most other Thundercats seem to be graphite grey.
Its listed on ebay here:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160396324139&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:GB:1123

This is the reply I had after asking for further details:

The service book has 3 stamps, the last being at 4625 May 2005, in nov 2005 (which is the first of 4 MOT cert) the MOT states 10070 miles and the bike has had very little use each year up until last summer when it was used properly again and brings it to its current mileage. Everything works as it should and I can't fault this bike in anyway, I don't know of any major service having been carried out but the way the engine runs and how the bike handles I would say with confidence that the bike has been look after and seen the neccessary work when due. I took the bike in part ex against a VFR 800 that I had but I have two other bikes already (Aprilia Falco and BMW F650), so no need for another. This thundercat is one of the cleanest I have seen in a while. Hope that info helps.

Sorry for long 1st post everyone but any ideas and thoughts about this bike or waiting for another one. I'm hoping to have one for before the summer and before the prices start to rise again!

Thanks a lot

Don't worry about the silver wheels - they'll be polished ones - both my Ace and my Cat have the same.... personally I prefer them like that - but that's just me...... it looks a nice bike, and tbh, if it wasn't so far away from me, me and my mate (who is also looking for a Cat) would have been very interested in it (especially as she wanted a red one). Good luck if you go for it and Welcome to the site great

The bike looks very nice. I'm sure a price guide will tell you if it is good value but looks like a good deal.
Take a biker friend or consider asking a mechanic to go with if you are unsure what to look for. A test ride to ensure 2nd gear stays in throughout the range is worth doing I'd suggest.
Hope the deal is very good and true without being too good to be true if you know what I mean.

Cheers

Hi , Welcome ,I have an all Red model just like the one in your ebay - but mine does have the original black wheels - but that one looks good with the silver wheels too.
Below are a couple of cats I found on autotrade just to give an idea of what £2000 can buy you . Yours does look fairly priced - but obviously have it checked out .
John.
