Due to life changing circumstances I am having to abandon various car and motorcycle projects.
I am offering them first to forum / club members as the builds have been well documented with pictures.
ALL are to be termed “projects” to be completed. Most parts have been bought new where required or refurbished. ALL will require some smaller parts to complete.
It would be great to see at least some of them completed before it’s too late. All are unique in their own way and once completed would not be seen as someone else’s makeover.
This is a deeply regrettable situation as these projects have been my ongoing passion for the past 4-5 years. Bikes in general for almost 60 !
Of interest [ or not ! ] here is
my Kawasaki KZ750 [twin ] Flat Tracker, but as that is almost complete, I’d prefer to sell it as a complete package. Please see my build thread for details / pix.
All will be open to sensible offers – failing that they’ll go on E-Bay [ UK ]. There’s a 9 months + time frame for this – so I won’t be giving the stuff away.
I’ll still be around the forum for the foreseeable and thank you all for making my time here a pleasure.4th March 2016 at 4:52 pm #13110philpassinghamParticipant
Shame you got to sell,hope it’s not too serious,take care sir5th March 2016 at 3:19 pm #13114
thanx for the kind words.
The short answer is – it could be !!!
I have to wait for the 6 month assessment [ June ] to see if the decline of kidney function has been halted ….. I’ll start worrying [ or not ] then !5th March 2016 at 4:40 pm #13113lonesomeParticipant

That is indeed sad news Beachcomber. I wish I was in a position to buy your project as you have done some great things.
I wish you all the best with your health buddy. Make sure you keep in touch11th March 2016 at 8:46 am #13115
yes it’s been a pleasure to be around here, and YES, I am seriously gutted that I cannot complete the project.
However, I will still be on the forum bugging you all as I don’t need kidneys to use a keyboard !!!20th April 2016 at 7:16 am #13116
I have sold my TR1 Cafe Racer project and quite a few odds ‘n sods.
I decided it’s best to sell one project at a time, as it took me a whole day to find the bits for the TR1 before the buyer came to collect!
So, the plan is to do just that – gather all the Flat Tracker parts up together then both buyer and seller knows what’s there !
I’ll be doing that over the next 2 weeks or so and again will give forum members first dibs before E-Bay / whatever.
On the health front – diagnosis confirmed as stage 3 CKD [ chronic kidney disease ] – however, the good [?] news is that there are 5 stages before things get desperate [ dialysis, etc. ]and for the past 3 months I’ve stabilised at stage 3 ]
Biggie assessment in June / July to see how we’re going.20th April 2016 at 7:59 am #13117MikeonabikeParticipant
Wishing you all the best with your health.
