The worlds gone mad.
It became an urgent sale when the wife found the credit card statement.
He allegedly misunderstood, "do whatever the fark you want"
I'm sure you could still buy these new in the early 90's and you could have got 3 for that price.
They were only ever a cheap commuter.
I was so close to buying an almost new one as my first bike. There was one within my tight apprentice budget but I really wanted a XT250 that another apprentice was thinking of selling, so I waited till pay day and got every bit of cash i could in my hand and put it in front of the other apprentice, I thought fuck it mum will feed me till next pay day, if he said no I was going past the TS on the way home that was a bit cheaper to pick it up
the rest is history and my Yamaha fetish began
the look on the other apprentice fathers face when he found out how much he’d sold it to me for was daggers
Yeah they were pretty cheap, I bought an new one as first bike in the '80s as a teenager.
I could say so much, but wont.
But he's kidding himself.
Wai you all so unkind, lah?
"But I spent $28 000 on it so that's what it's worth".
Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that......cue people selling $65k custom Harley's.
Ah, I thought he had fitted new expensive forks and wheels, fuel tank etc.
This is also advertised on Book Face, here's the spiel,
"Selling Adventurer R 790. Immaculate bike, has many extras on it. 2400 klms always garaged, never rode in the rain or dropped. Some of the features, cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring system, Akropovic muffler, straight out Decat elliminator exhaust, Magura hydraulic clutch, Excell rims and anodised inner hubs. KTM power parts, anti vibration handlebar mounts, and the list goes on and on. The price is 28,000 ono"
He claims it has a hydraulic clutch, can anybody comment on that?
Is there a conversion kit?
"Magura hydraulic clutch"
That is an aftermarket juice clutch.
Yes it has, an immaculate leyland mariner is still a leyland mariner...
They were a Morris weren't they?
So not even roadworthy?
Marina, Morris or Leyland? Austin-Morris was a division of Leyland at the time (1971-80ish). Imagine how sciniltillating the performance of the 1500cc diesel would have been....
But what if it was the six?
Great; until you got to a corner or even worse had to stop. Same as the 6cylinder Cortina's & Centura(?) Went like stink in a straight line then thnigs got interesting hitting the picks or turning the wheel
Yeah but geez you knew you were alive and that you wanted to live a little longer.
