OhNo Due to a change in circumstances my bike is for sale

Post  greencat on Sun Mar 20 2011, 22:26

Hi All,

I'm afraid it's come to this, but it's time to sell the bike Crying or Very sad Many of you will know this was the route I took after I gave up the Thundercat. It's been a fantastic 4 years and, despite my fondness for the 'cat, I have never regretted making the change. The mileage reflects all the rideouts arranged on this site! A pic and further details appear below. If you, or anyone else you know, want to see more look here.

Bottom line - £3795 ono. I shall be advertising it more widely in a couple of weeks, but I thought I'd give you all prior notice.

Cheers, Chris

Ahh, Terry, an Austin 7 - I knew I could rely on you Very Happy
I'll take a comment like that from you, but these other whipper-snappers! The cheek!

Don't write me off yet old
50 is the new 30, so what's the under-seat storage on the Thundercat for - your comforter! rofl

I intend on keeping you guessing pokefun New bike arrives the Wee Mac weekend (I'm SO excited :bounce: )
I'll see a fair few of you at Bishops Castle, but will probably blurt it out before then.

Chris

PS a BMW (tsk!)

I think you should go for a 2001 Fireblade, a black and silver one with 30k on the clock to be more precise..

Actually, I happen to have one going

I don't know what it is. But the Box Brownie picture clearly (or, rather, fuzzily) shows a single-sided swingarm. Looking at the mirrors, rear light, wheel design and exhausts, I'm saying 848.

If you put a challenge out there, someone's gonna take it! Hope I didn't ruin the reveal!
