Hi and welcome. All the best with your purchase.

I too cast an eye on the the Thundercat when it was launched. At the time I had an ageing Yammy 650 turbo and figured the 'Cat was the best upgrade to the 'new' generation bikes, so much so I had a silver and yellow 'Cat pic as wallpaper on my work computer in '96/'97. A new bike then just wasn't on the 'domestic' radar, wife hated them.

When I decided that I wanted to get a bike in the UK, there was only one choice in my selection criteria. Was just a simple case of which one, lost a bid on a great looking Black and Gun bike on fleabay, but the highest bidder vanished, so it was mine after all Wink That bike is still going strong, no longer mine but is still on the site, it's done around 100 000 miles - great bikes.

I hope you realise your dream soon, I'm am almost certain you won't be disappointed.

Hi there prime and welcome to the site. Mr Nutt is right I'm an Oldhamer myself, where abouts in Oldham are you? I know the cat you are talking about, it belonged to a mate of mine, well at least it did until some scrote pinched it and wrote it off.

Good luck with your purchase mate and maybe we can meet up some time for a rideout.

Welcome Aboard Prime!

Excellent choice of bike, a big step up from the 125's, but a great one! The cat was also my first bike, you'll love every second of it!

Dont forget to post pics when you have time.

Erm.......what dud that button do.

I too noticed you were green and convinced myself that you had been given a kudos point for your post.

So I gave a - kudos vote to see if it would change it expecting to be able to easily undo it.

I appear to have tarnished your reputation billy..,, sorry :(
