Hi all,to end the speculation I have have bought the bike,it was the one on ebay back in Feb.It was bought to tour on and a few things added,thorn rear rack and surly front along with new electrical system but the buyer has developed a health problem and had to sell it.It has a good home now as I intend to leave on a world tour next year.
Congratulations on your purchase, It is a beauty, may you have many happy miles together.
I'm glad that on this occasion it turned out to be an honest sale.
We were correct to pick up on the fact that the advert wasn't quite right, though it turned out to be for different reasons than we were nervous about.
Well done for you going to see it in person and making a deal out with ebay. I'd guess you got a good deal.
I wonder if, had the seller said that it was for resale through ill health, would he have got some bids on the auction.
Anyway, hope to hear of the adventures to come in the future.
