I actually know the guy that built this bike to sell and he used 2 bikes to make one. One bike was the most immaculate cbr 250rr that I have ever seen.

The bike had around 200 klms on the clock when I saw it, but it was un-complied import with a seized engine. He had bought another bike that was complied and used that frame and engine along with all the parts of the low klm bike as that could never be registered.

I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I saw it all those years ago. Every bracket, bolt, hose, clip, wire, brakes and even the discs were brand new like it just left honda showroom.

I don't remember what he did with the engine, but at the end of the day this bike was as close to new as you could get.

The pictures don't do this bike justice.

$8,000 too much, well try and duplicate how neat/new this bike is for under $8,000. End of the day it's what people are willing to pay.

Still, at the end of the day it is only a 250.

studricho, i didnt know that
i thought it was just some guy who put a "tiger" kit on his crappy old bike and was trying to sell it

if it is indeed as you say it is, then id much rather spend my 8k on that than a new ninja 250

That's fine as the pictures that the guy used are crap. Why would you use shit pictures and try and get top dollar.

I take so many pictures when I sell a bike and I still don't think that they are good enough.

His name isn't Con, is it Stud? ;)
Actually his name is Steve from Max Power Performance Motorcycles hence the fact that the bikes has a dyno sheet.

fair enough, but if you didnt know the guy, or anything about this bike... what would have been your first thought when you seen that ad?

Yes, if I didn't know the bike I would say "tell him that his dreaming"!
