Well it looks like the sad day is approaching - I don't think I can really justify keeping the TL now that I've splashed out on a KTM Superduke.
I think the bike will fetch about £1,400 in fairly standard trim (good condition '97, R reg, with about 35,000 miles on it), if I'm lucky. That means removing and selling separately the main fancy bits - Yoshi full system, Sprint steering damper and Maxton rear shock. I expect to get a few hundred for these. It would be nice to sell the bike as a whole and keep it in circulation but I reckon if I broke it, it would potentially be worth a fair bit more.
When I get more time over the next couple of days I'll compile a list of parts with approx values. I'm keen to see what sort of interest there is.....I have to say I don't want to be shipping stuff abroad so it would be UK only (certainly all the bigger stuff anyway). This isn't a 'for sale' thread but it might start the vultures circling!?:O

Hmm... It would be a shame to hear you sell your precious. I'm with Si there, keep it if it doesn't cost you anything to have it standing. Summer is coming and the urge will hopefully come back.

If not, I would definately have a go at a set of Braking disks if you'll sell a set. :vulture

Hello Tim

I'd be interested in the Yoshi full system if you decide to parting.
Please can you put me in the queue.

Cheers :)

Hmm, no closer to making a decision yet :banghead

Octo - I don't have Braking discs - just standard.

Birdface - you are 3rd in the queue for the exhaust system at the moment
PS: Can you post a picture of yourself - I'm curious!:laugh

Hi Tim, I just look normal - honest! Got nickname many years ago after an evening of substance abuse in Amsterdam. One of my mates thought I was developing bird-like facial features. Cheers :)

First dibs on the engine to you Ben.
Having said that, the bike has been sat in the garage next to its new stablemate for a week now and the wife hasn't said anything. Perhaps If I push it to the back and pile some of the junk on it....it might just get forgotten about :devious

If so, I apologise for getting all you vultures off your pirches :laugh
