Post  jayster on Sun Apr 14 2013, 19:21

hi, those of you who have followed the project thread on the forum will be familiar with this bike already, the thread can be found here: http://www.yamaha-thundercats.org/t5014-project-thundercat

if your too lazy to read all of that then ill list a few key details below...

A few details of the bike...

2002 (02) yzf600r

15,000 miles

will have fresh mot for new owner

freshly painted at dream machine to a manufacturers standard in my own design and colour choices (crystal white with blue pearl, pearl red and phantom black), only seen 20 road miles (as yet) for a shakedown run.

powder coated frame and swing arm in satin black

powdercoared rear sets and rear hangers, including brake pedal and gear selector

scorpion carbon can with ss link and ss headers all cleaned with new gaskets

braided break lines

stubby leavers

new sintered hh brake pads all round

full brake rebuild with new seals

wavy rear disc

new swing arm bearings/seals/spindle (over £120 alone in parts)

new chain and sprockets

new wheel bearing and dust seals

HID and led lighting throughout

rear seat converter unit

double bubble dark smoke screen

new yamaha R1 tool kit under seat

led carbon mirrors

clear rear led light with indicators built in

engine and gearbox are perfect with many new seals and parts with casings painted gloss black

the bike has NO issues just ready for summer fun!

this is just the tip of the iceberg, as you will realise if you read through the project thread...

the paintwork is nothing short of immaculate just out of the showroom!

i have all the receipts and invoices for the above plus much more.....

im terrified to add up all the invoices but it will easily exceed the asking price and thats not including what i paid for the bike.

ive advertised it locally for a possibly optimistic £2350, my bottom line is £2000 firm. ill give it a little while on here and gumtree before i move it to ebay Shocked

any questions just ask

Sorry to here you're selling it m8, I think you should keep her and enjoy for at least 1 year.
You should definitely get your asking price easily. specially if they've followed your thread.
Even if you asked 3k I'd buy it but unfortunately I haven't that sort of cash.
that's my pennies worth, p.s good luck with the sale and I hope theirs a fight for it, Let the bidding wars begin

thanks for that mate, appreciate the comments, after all the work ive done on it and all the time ive spent on it i just dont feel like i could enjoy riding it and give it the use it deserves, im one of those people who enjoys building things with lego rather than playing with the things ive built if that makes sense?!

i do have some crazy ideas for my next thundercat already though! Smile

I think it should be hermetically sealed placed in a local Yamaha dealer (they pay you loads) just to show how fantastic a 10+ old bike can be.

But that way no one's enjoying it. Crying or Very sad
Anyway good luck, if only I had the reddies.

I'm not easily impressed by aftermarket paint jobs, but that is absolutely stunning. A very clever and well-thought out design applied very well. Whoever has bought this is one lucky fella/fellarina.

ok well sorry to keep everyone in suspense, the new owner is a new member, not sure if hes introduced himself or if he will but he was very excited about getting the bike and seemed like he would take good car of it... it left my possession today on one of the work vans and was delivered to surrey some time this afternoon.

im told the new owner was pleased to take delivery, i hope that's accurate!

im gutted its gone, rode it to work this morning and seriously loved every second of it... plus with the amount of emails ive had since the suns come out from old adds and people wanting to buy it is unreal!

all the best to the new owner! have fun and take care with it!
