Free delivery to the UK that's ok. They`re not that heavy so if you took the night boat you could toss it over the rail mid crossing and claim off the ferry company for the loss.
Just don't show them the photos as they will never pay out if they see it ( do you think the bloke that built it is likely to get savaged by is guide dog if he does another project?)

Weirdly I think its an improvement on the original look of the GN, I still wouldn't buy it but to me it shows you can polish a turd :tup:

I think turd polishing just about sums up this contraption. There`s a lot of them about judging by the small ads.
This model was sold from 1982-1998 with almost no updates apart from graphics, and was at best a humble commuter bike.
Renowned for swing arms rotting so badly they would break in two, and engines failing due to low oil levels as they had a very small sump.
22 bhp allegedly, though 18 at the back wheel was more realistic. Is it really worth the price of two Bigs?
I`ll pass on this wasted effort thanks.
