Ted will you still have a 750 turbo at the end of this sale, or are you out of the game?

Nope that will be me finished with the turbos, I would still like to be around the site but as for riding the bike anymore is getting harder to do as I have some health issues that mean these bikes are just heavy to handle.
I sold my best bike a couple months ago and I don’t think I’ll ever ride a turbo again.
I’ve got a versys 650 now which is so much better for me to ride but I might even have to change that too, I’m struggling to get my leg over. Lol

Might end up with something low and slow.

You might be right there, my son has said tonight that he might buy it off me as an investment as long as I do it up for him so he can sell it in a couple years and put the money towards the deposit for his first house.
So she might be staying for abit longer.

Think I’ll wait until tomorrow to see if he’s still thinking the same way and he’s not pissed. Lol

Rewind.

My boys having the bike but I get to finish it off and then he can sell it in the future to help with a deposit for a mortgage as he doesn’t have a bike license.

Don’t know how he’s going to afford it thought yet as he doesn’t get his degree until next year, and then he’s going to be earning so much that he probably won’t need the bike. Lol. Oh well that’s his problem.

So for now she’s staying with me.

ted ,you know youll never see the money from that until its sold dont you?
youll end up doing all the work ,selling it then giving him the balance between the agreed price and whatever you sell it for :bananasex
And you will agree to let him have it at kids rates ,which we all know is way better than even mates rates.
as an aside ,i put at zx9r front end and hayabusa rear wheel in an extended swingarm on one of mine and it sits so much lower its feels surprisingly small to swing your legs over.ill admit its never been ridden yet but it may be an option worth considering to keep it usable for you. :thumbup

At the moment my boy just want me to build it up and get it running and then possibly taking it back to standard, he does even have a bike license and like I say once he graduates next year he will be earning stupid money and probably wont bother with it.
And your right it does sit really low now so I might get it fixed for him then tell him to piss off as I want to keep it. Lol
