There was another G8 came up for auction in Sydney last week. We were hoping that Ralf would be able to snag it to remotor his bike but the price rapidly went silly.

Anyway, a couple of days ago I got a call from the new owner, a shop in Sydney, looking for a brake lever. After a bit of a chat I asked if it was a flat or roller bike. He didn't know so I got him to take some pics and it's a Flattie so I filled him in on that.

Just out of interest I asked him how much he paid for it? $9,750!!!!! affraid I thought I'd heard wrong but no! OK, so it's not a stat write off so it can be re-registered but even so. In the current market for that money you could get a low mileage roller bike with a FSH that hasn't been crashed! Insane!

If he's happy with such treatment, he should at least learn the merit of Astroglide.

Yep Pete
That's why I bailed out at $4000.
Way to much interest in that bike.

I was half thinking of pushing myself to get to Broardford .....................
Going all that way to the desert for me is on the agenda post 2020 in the V12 twin turbo Wraith on Lake Gairdner.
