I have had this bike for under 5 years.

I bought it of a film production company that made DANNY DECKCHAIR.

The bike was featured in the movie and ridden by Ryce Ifans and Miranda Otto.

The bike was bought privately by Tim Parry [Vehicle wrangler on set] who most in Sydney would know as a legend in the Motorcycling community,{The bike shop on Pennant Hills road still bears his name}

 

He sourced the bike as it was a good looking and reliable one.

It is now for sale to the highest bidder above $7500.

I have seen similar bikes being sold for thousands more a few years ago.

Black with white pinstripe Pirelli rear and metz front tyres.it has the original kauser panniers and a rack on the rear.

It runs Koni's and staintune pipes also 900 bars that will need a re-chrome.It isn't perfect but with a little effort can be returned to showroom condition.

Pics are ready for those that are serious ..FLAN

Hi FLAN,
I'm serious , so please send the photos, 7and a half is top money, but if it is original, then myself or someone in our BM group (called the airheads) here in Brissy, may be interested.... i'll let others know. /5 models are wanted but they must be complete cause of the price of parts etc.

many thanks
Graham

It's a no shit sale squeeech.
This bike is ready for rego and complete/rideable/reliable
And yeah $7500+ is Right for this bike ??!!
All it needs is a paint touch-up on some frame sections and guards,but it is very minor..
Light/very mild rust on the chrome bits like wheel spokes and there is a frosting on the aluminium casings.
These things need polishing from sitting
It has movie history and is a road ready job.It fires up/runs well !!
It has a pair of kausers as well as some R65 BMW panniers that may suit.
I have pic's loaded on my PC but have forgotten how to post them on chatboards via photoshop etc..
I can send them via email,i have 5 pic's ready to send from all angles..
PM me with a e-mail addy and i will send pic's to you.

Note;
I am not flexable on price..
It is worth the price asked!!
I "may" trade though..

FLAN, I will ask around this week-end , (before i waste ya time sending photo's), we have seven /5 models in our group, but there always seems like someone wants another. I see you are firm on the price, so that rules me out personally, but we have about 60 "airheads" in our group, if i get a buyer (at that price) I will contact you.

thanks
Graham.
