Heads up on a bluey

Nothing to do with me, but seems a proper bargain, with a brand new carb and shorty header pipe as spares!

Not surprised, about 800 squids worth of spares!

You got it?

No not that one.
I've been looking at TTR's for ages on ebay and elsewhere. Not many about really. There was that Raid on ebay which i fancied but it's been on there for ages at £3250, but it's recently gone. I would imagine they've just not relisted it due to the plague more than anything.
Decided to look at XR250R's as an alternate, spotted one so i 'bought' it via 'buy it now'. Trouble is the chap has still not responded after a week and many emails and phone calls, so i imagine he sold it elsewhere and is giving me the silent treatment.
Of course during that time 2 TTR's appeared on ebay including the one above. By the time i realised what was happening with the XR they both had deposits on them.
A bit despondent i searched again at 0500 the other morning and low and behold there was a TTR that had only been listed for a few hours. Looks like a nice bike, looks to be in good order, pictures are good and it has a loads of spares but no photo's of them only a few itemised in a list. £1500 and it's 220 miles away. So i bought that one and am picking it up on Tuesday. Got the van booked, looking forward to it.

So i may be in the market for a 350 kit after re-reading the whole thread last night and this morning and catching up on the updates over the last year or so.

Yes i'll get some Phot's once i pick it all up. It could be quite a good haul. I believe the chap is retired and maybe retiring from dirt biking. I think there's a spare frame, swing-arm and all sorts of bits and pieces acquired over a number of years.

It's even got a shaved down seat which will be perfect for me as i'm not that tall. It'll help me get used to it at least and then i can add some padding for longer trips in the future. My 2019 CB500X is 830mm so i don't anticipate too many issue especially starting off with a shaved down seat.

It's a Bluey which i hadn't intended as i was looking for a raid but it looks good and i'm quite happy with the decision. No stickers on the tank or plastics but i'm more of a 'functionality over form' type of chap so not too concerned about that.

I didn't know that although i suppose it should be obvious given that you've got so much in there. I wanted to see how i go before messing too much with the geometry.
