Getting rid of it after all your work????
Just to say why I'm selling.Two reasons mate. Firstly I have just bought a Jaguar XJR 4.2 Supercharged and it will inevitably need some money spent to go through all the issues and nothing is cheap about these cars, parts or specialist labour. I need to start a slush fund or it will bankrupt me! The other reason is that although I love this bike and bought it as a keeper it's maybe one bike too far for me and makes it hard to keep all of them running and ridden. I have a 2007 KTM Superduke which is a better bike, with better suspension, better handling, lighter and much more fun TBO. Better on track and better to go out on rideouts with guys on super modern machinery. I also have a 1975 Kawasaki 750 H2c triple so if I want a retro blast or nostalgia trip I use that. The TLR doesn't really fit with the kind of riding I now do or the kind of reads that are available to me. It loves smooth, fast A roads and big wide roundabouts - somewhere to let it loose. It's better at high speeds and not for short blasts. And it's sooooo heavy! I just don't choose it to go to the shops, or pop down to the local bike meet. I built it for me, not to sell, so there is far more invested in parts and finish here than the typical TLR for sale. This was my own personal labour of love! I know it's at the high end of what people will pay but I think it's worth it.

I wish you luck in selling it. I watched how much you did to this bike. I hope you enjoy the "new" car. I am somewhat familiar with Jags. My brother in law is an Englishman and moved here to the States years ago. He has a British car repair shop in CA. I have seen some of the things he has had to fix. All I will say is, "No thank you." :)

WOW, I would LOVE that sitting in my garage!
Unfortunately I'm a few thousand miles and a couple of oceans away.
It would probably cost me another $5k to get it here!
Hope it goes to a good home 👍
