Hi all,

I've decided to sell on my baby (see above) so I can use the funds to restoration my 1986 K100RT (ex-police).

As regulars will be aware, I've given this one a lot of love with a list of new parts longer than both arms that have gone in to her, but I'm not sure what to ask, so I'd welcome some feedback/offers if possible.

Cheers, Alex.

P.S. Pictures to follow.

Thanks for the good wishes. Any thoughts as to what I should ask/reasonably expect for the RS?

Hello one and all,

Please let anyone you know/everyone you know, I'm selling off my baby to fund the restoration of the RT which, thanks to Ben Shuttleworth, will be getting a radio box and single seat sometime next week!

The link on eBay can be found by clicking here: eBay

The link for bikesales can be found by clicking here: bikesales , then dropping SSE-AD-311331 in to the keyword box.

...and my personal walk around can be found on YouTube, over here:

Cheers, Alex.

Cheers OG.

The RS wasn't a frame up, but the police bike is (hopefully) going to be better than factory :-)

Nice bit of news.

Just a few hours after posting the bike on eBay and bikesales, I received a phone call from a prospective buyer offering cash.

Fingers crossed, it will all go swimmingly tomorrow evening.

Hi all,

Just to let you know it's only got about 4 hours left, so if you know anyone that's looking for a clean RS now's their chance.

Cheers, Alex.

I'd agree, and hopefully the new owner will as well.

Keep checking the other threads for updates about the ex-Police restoration. I should have some exciting new to share next week, all going as planned of course.

When I saw this thread title of "runs like a top" it made me think of a salesman at a bike shop where I worked.

He was trying to sell a bike to a customer and told the customer "it goes like a train" and as soon as the customer was out of earshot he turned to me and said in an evil sort of voice "you ever tried to ride a steam loco". It was all I could do not to laugh as the bike was a bit of a heap and the customer would have been very unsatisfied if he had bought it.

He now sells used grey import gold wings and calles himself "Honest John".

Thankfully I've never gone under the moniker "Honest Alex" and have no plans to either!

Great news. The new buyer, a certain discerning gentleman from South Australia named Ross, has just driven away with the old girl.

Both he and I decided to celebrate with a few pints of Guinness and a couple of tins of Kilkenny's.

Top bloke and paid in cash!
