Default Have I done the right thing?

I have NEVER bought anything that costs a lot of money without seeing it in the flesh before, but I saw this on Ebay & thought "OOh that looks different & I like that"
I put a bid on it & guess what?............................... Yes it's now mine.



W reg 2000
10800 miles
Race can
Double Bubble Screen
"Paint" (It looks like its been built out of 2 different bikes, but I like it)
12 months MOT
All for ?1400 Which I thought was a bargain

Got to pick it up from Swansea one day this week if my Insurance cheque comes through.
I cant wait to get back on a bike again, just hope I can cope with a ride that far, if not, I'll have to camp at thae side of the road till the pain subsides

Even got fairing stickers made up. Can't complain about the price for the mileage and condition. All it needs now are purple wheels.

I hope it is a bargain because I have turned down a bike that i know is OK, but a bit far away from me (Cheers Andy)
