Re: Quick question!

Glad you found not to much wrong with it but before you change the rear rotor try and fit some sinted pads it worked on mine ... they will kill you rear rotor a bit faster but it will give you more time to find one.
As for the rear cush drive it can be fixed by covering the pins that fit in between the rubber with a push bike inner tube i can not remember what size fits snug but i did do a post on it.

Good luck Paul.

Re: Quick question!

No way! Dude we were bidding on the same bike, I now own it! I'm sorry you didn't get it. I was also looking at that one in Devon after though, looks nice and much better for the price!

If we weren't bidding on that bike one of us would have had it at 700!

The dent is actually un-noticable and that crack also looks far bigger in the photo.

Any Bike, or any vehicle for that matter, is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. There have been a couple of 500's on EBay recently, one close to me went for 395, I had a look at it before the auction end, someone got a bargain there, it was a very tidy bike.
At the other "extreme" there is this, same year as mine.

i know this is an old thread but this bike is still for sale and for more than twice the price i paid for my bike which is ten years younger

posting whilst drunk should be banned lol<br />
