    2001 748R (in parts) #847

    So I pulled this apart a few years ago in anticipation of tidying her up but life got in the way.
    She's been stored undercover and wrapped up so most parts are in the same condition as when I took her off the road.
    She has all the usual 'R' fruit: Ohlins, Brembos, 5 spoke Marchesinis, single seat etc but the engine is rather a special one.
    Originally built by Wayne Patterson in Bunbury it has 996 barrels and heads, extensive head work, cams, rods, pistons, tweaked crank and a whole bunch of other stuff.
    Honestly can't remember the specs.
    Oh, also has 48mm(?) Termi full system.
    I don't have pics as it's currently all wrapped up in the shed, if you're honestly interested, come round for a look.
    Looking at getting ~$6K for it to throw at my Landcruiser or will consider swaps for a bike to the same figure (cash my way always an option).
    No, I won't part it out and no bullshit lowballs thanks

    Still rego'ed? or will it need to go over the pits?
    Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"

    No rego mate unfortunately but it has the original crankcase and engine number and is a 748...

    I think you should drop the price if TurboR1 buys it purely so we can poke fun at him for having TWO italian air compressors in his garage.
    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

    Engine is complete, but the rest is "deconstructed".
    I tore it down to the frame to get it all powdercoated and then life got in the way.
    A classic case of an unfinished project.

    Yeah, me too mate but the fact is that I just don't have the time nor inclination to put her back together.
    I'd rather she goes to someone else and gets put back on the road than to sit in my shed for another <insert number of years here>.

    ^^^ To any potential buyer, you will be owning one of the true PSB legends....

    Sad to see you having part with her Jim.
    Sventek, being a predominantly lazy fuck can you please purchase some for me, bring me the stuff, create something I want after you think of it for me then clean my house, wash my car, dog, bike breathe for me.
