I'm just over the border in Shropshire but Powys is a large county, can you narrow it down a bit like near a town.

There are a few of us Chris, as Phil says - what do you want doing and more importantly where exactly?

Thanks. Newtown exactly. there is a bike at a dealers I would like eyeing over... I am seriously considering buying it. Simply have not the time to go and view it personally neither does it make economic sense to do so as I think it is a perfect example. If anyone is handy and it would not be too much trouble please pm me.

If its the bike I think it is then..is there not another closer, they really are a commodity, I mean even a new one from my local dealer would only cost around £600 to 800 more? Nice enough bike though, my mate parko has one and loves it.

Dave Jones has a mint low mileage (sub 4k!) Gixxer/r750 in stock K5. however I have agreed to buy privately the same bike but in 20th anniversary trim a few more miles on clock but the one to have as far as resale values are concerned. This link is supposed to be the bike, but it ain`t cos it does not have the Yoshimura badged can on it.

If it is below expectations it will be offloaded straight away.

only spent half my bike fund :)

however I have been known to make mistakes.
