Sorry to hear Ted that you have to part ways with the bike.
Pity you are not in Aus, I would have grabbed it!
The problem is not the problem, the problem is your attitude towards the problem.

WOW Ted, I hope things work out down the road for you.

In the mean time somebody's going to get a lot of nice parts, and a nice project to finish off.

Good luck.

Thanks guys, hoping it won’t take to long to sell and will probably be more gutted to see her go than selling my other one last year after all the time I’ve spent on getting it all sorted but at the end of the day it’s only a lump of metal and family come first.
I’ve still got the versys so I can still do my fund raising for the armed forces bikers charity when I get chance.
Anyway :beer cheers.

Sorry to hear this Ted, hoping all goes well for you!

Actually tempted to get your lot of stuff, but to ship it I am sure would be hell!

Wow Ted sorry to hear about your bad luck, the tanks and turbos must be worth 2k at current markets. Somebody will get a real bargain there.
Hope everything works out for you quickly and you are soon back in the saddle.

Huge amount of parts Ted and bargain for a job lot. I guess you wanted a straight deal. These parts have dried up on ebay, which I watch and don't see them come up any more. And when they do they're eye watering prices. You're buyer has been very lucky. I was tempted but would have probably ended up hoarding them. We're an ageing population of enthusiasts and have to balance having just enough parts to see us through. The bubble on classics will end at some point but lets hope its a while longer just yet. I have ECUs, CDIs, turbos, cranks, heads just in case, to keep me going. Its just the insurance to keep the dream alive and not for getting payback, because one day they'll just get chucked in the bin for sure when we all off this mortal coil.

And for now...the 750 turbo was the last but probably the most iconic bike of the air cool era. Huge performance, still keeps up with modern superbikes in a straight line, handles like a trolley basket at Tesco's, smokes, stinks, ticks as it cools, eats fuel, needs enthusiasts care, colour scheme unbelievable, rare, consumes huge amount of time, makes you drink beer trying to figure out how to keep it running, often presents itself with a list of niggles to sort after every ride , stands out more than any other bike in the garage...what else would you want?

Ted so sorry to hear of your difficulties. We met at JapFest a few years back and the 750 turbo.com members put up a good show. Hope things work out and you can get back to owning a turbo at some juncture .

Best wishes
Mang
