Anyone live south west of Sydney?

  1. G'day

    Anyone here live south west of Sydney? I am looking at buying a bike but can't get enough time off work to go and have a look at it, I am in the Army currently on course in Singleton.

    I was hoping someone from here could have a look at it or recommend a bike shop in and around cambelltown area? Case of piss wouldn't be out of the question.

    Looking for someone with a couple of years experience with bikes, the help would be much appreciated.

  4. Haha, didn't think I would end up back in Singo mate. :(

    Here is the bike I am looking at, Click Here

    The owner lives in Bradbury, bought this bike off his mate who bought from Sumoto.

    Anyone got any recommendations for workshops in the SW/Metro area?

  5. I live south west of Sydney :rofl:
    Two things I noticed;
    • It's a grey import (Keep away)
    • Price- It's only worth at best $2000
    IMO I wouldn't waste my time.

    EDIT: $2000 is it's red book value

  12. :LOL:

    It isn't worth 9k though, if that wasn't obvious. However its very likely they may have paid that much if they went through a dealer.

    Good luck checking it out, they are fantastic bikes.
