Welcome to the site :2up

Want a ride, best thing to do is post up.

A few here ride most days, and can often be diverted by a reason for a long route home :biggrin2

Stupidly bought a Bandit 400 that closely resembles a bin with the intent of making a café/fighter type frankenbike. I was told it was in good nick and ran like a dream but the guy couldn't even get it started when I got there so I ended up walking away with it for only a few hundred quid.

It's a heap of junk just now - for a start, it has carbs and a cylinder head from a GSXR400 mounted to a GSF400V engine. Then there's the exceptionally high quality pod filters that it is trying to draw air through and the fact that it doesn't really have a wiring loom, or rear sub frame, or brake light, or working suspension, or a seat. :log

Nothing a little TLC can't sort out. :cool
