Yep I sold it as new in show room condition. Thing is it was all about the rebuild for me, not the actual riding. I spent two years on that bloody bike. I sold it to a chancer who messed about with the carbs and oil pump and basically made a mess of it. One of the exhausts was ****ing oil out of the seals.

The reason I know is because the bloke who bought it off the muppet i sold it to rang me asking for all carb settings etc. I told him I had built the bike myself with new everything and it was running perfectly. He told me what he paid for it and then I realised the bloke I sold it too had given me the whole ******** spiel about being a collector.

I politely said goodbye, and under my breath said its your f_ing problem now mate not mine.
