hi. Just a thought im in suffolk would you be prepared to sell the spare standard exhaust or the venom separately? assuming it will fit a 93 RD07

I was selling a RD07 Remus exhaust - it did not fit a RD07a without getting different fittings, I would assume the same is true of the venom.

Mine and many others Venoms fit the RD07a fine

Aztec was wanting to fit your spare silencer it to a RD07, you have a RD07a silencer which will fit RD07a's but probably not RD07's, hence my original post

Nice looking bike. Surprised you priced it so cheap. Thought the year and mileage would warrent an extra couple hundred on £3K. Wont hang around for long.........

If I hadn't already agreed to buy another, i'd have snapped your arm off at this price!!
Btw, weren't 'Y' registrations issued between March and Sept 2001?
Just being pedantic (as usual). :D

you might want to take some better photos after a good wash and polish , the pics you have taken are obviously mid ride some place and are not the best detail and apart from the paintwork she looks a little dirty , with a wash and brush up and some detailed pics of areas such as wheels crank cases bash plate etc , you may get more bites on the cherry so to speak.

best of luck with the sale mate:thumbup:

"wow that is very fairly priced.. if anyone tries to haggle more off just chase them off the yard..."


Your right if it's a minter, would you pay £3k for a rough one though ???

I feel it is necessary to fairly represent the bike following remarks on this forum regarding its condition.

For the avoidance of doubt, it may help to explain that there is some surface corrosion to both engine casings and in a small way to wheels. There is also some light rusting to some exposed areas of the frame. Lastly a small dent to the tank has not cracked its paint. (Please see attached close-up photography.)

All the above corrosion is commensurate with the age of the bike, and an indication that the bike has, over the years, seen some use. (This is a forum for adventure bikes and biking, is it not?)

The blemishes are typical of Japanese bikes that have had ten years use in the UK and Europe. The defects are entirely cosmetic and in no way affect the bike (which has a new MOT and, I might add, goes like a rocket).

I hope buyers on the lookout for a nice, used, Africa Twin, with very low mileage (rather more significant to would-be long distance tourists than the odd rust spot), will remain interested enough to contact me.

That cleaned up nice. What did you use to polish the bash plate and clean up your wheels?

Thankyou, Autosol with very fine wire wool then Autosol with cloth followed by Belgom alu which leaves a nice protective coating....Although to be honest as i said to Joe when i went to look at it, the pictures made it look far worse than it actually was...
