    Mixed emotions

    Well I've gone & done it now .
    I sold my SR500 project
    It all started about a year ago when I was talking to a work colleague about bikes & showing pics of them
    Then out of the blue about 6 months later he asks if I have anything for sale .
    When I thought about it I haven't touched the project for 5 or 6 years
    Anyway over a few beers we decided on a price & today it was collected & has a new home & owner
    I suppose it will get on the road again a bit sooner & there will be another SR500 addict

    I still have my SR500,SRX6,XT500 & TRX850 + a 76 750 Tiger
    & I have found as of late there is enough work in just keeping them ride-able & running
    & there is a little bit more room in the shed
    Cheers Dave

    Good call Dave,I've also got a few mates with plenty of bikes in the garage in different states of repair/refurb and if there honest most of them will never see tarmac again. Over here we just don't get a good enough run of weather to get out as much as we would like to.I'm happy to have my SR as my only bike,unfortunately I spend more time looking and tinkering with it than riding.

    Anyway I can't beleive you've not mentioned The Ashes,you boys have gave us a right spanking.Looks like its gonna end 4-0 and quite frankly we've been lucky to get 0 !!

    Me I won't ever do business over a few beers or what ever , unless I'm the buyer ! I have got so much killer stuff at pennies on the dollar by taking advantage of someones thirst for beer ! However I know that having too many bikes is like and I need to thin my herd as well , and no my SR is NOT for sale !

    The Poms got spanked alright !
    As far as SR500s go , I have owned 5 of them over the years
    & sold 4 of them (I kept this one in particular as it turns 40 next month)
    So Out of 4 sales 2 of the guys are still friends (a good result I think)
    The last bike I had actually put it back together , minus the engine & everything was working
    The engine needed a freshen up & a new carbie , but It would have gone too
    needed paint too , but I still got a couple of grand for it which should get the XT500 a bit closer
    Cheers Dave
