A big traily with its documents go from £700 up to a couple of grand,depending on condition
No documents are cheaper but would be a pain to ship out unless you strip it 1st
I got lucky with the Tenere and bagged it for £500 but it's mechanically tired.
Will use it for the rest of the year then rebuild it once winter sets in

Not as cheap as I had hoped, Italy is still the place to go apparently, but the riding looks better in Andy18s neck of the woods.

I use a quad bike trailer swivel on my bike trailer, so it stays upright when I lean!

Mind you, that trailer doesn’t look too heavy!

Is the trailer thin enough to filter with? that'll really scare car drivers.

the trailer has a swivel hitch,so bike can be leant on the floor if i wanted and the trailer will still stay up :-) tiny bit of flex on the towbar but i think thats inevitable.

I’m tempted by a late 70’s cb400n as a ULEZ beating commuter. It needs to be ‘79 to be expert by the time the ULEZ kicks in next year. Any thoughts?

This one is too late and too spendy but admittedly a honey: https://m.carandclas...uk/car/C1030531

Uh oh . I’ve been bullied it’s buying another bike by the new missus ! Another ke175d !
It’s a project but all the important and expensive bits are there . Best bit is that it’s a local bike and still has its original dealer plate albeit cracked.
It’s much more original that the one have had for 23 years ( used a lot on the trails) so will have a go at a better resto on this one.
I have another whole spares bike as well as loads of accumulated spares .
Quite excited about it but I don’t let her know that of course

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

Tempted to sell the ZZR1100 and get something 600 and naked.

Obviously worst time of the year to sell, it's cosmetically challenged and is a bit lumpy at idle. Carbs def overdue a proper fettling.

It goes like a stabbed rat and has a few decent bits on it mind.

It's probably close to bottom of the market for a running MOT'd example in my eyes but it's hard to gauge a price.

£1500 I imagine would probably buy a nicer one, if I got north of a grand I'd probably be over the moon. Less than a grand I'd probably just keep it.

I got involved tangentially as its to do with mental health issues and particularly suicide but I realise some are opposed to this sort of charitable endeavour. 

Round here they’ll be a load of old bikes breaking down randomly, here's one which is broken down in anticipation.
