Could be a cheap XBR....

Very low start and no reserve - I wonder what it will reach? Lots of work to do but looks like the basis of a decent bike.

Interesting project.
As you say Ian it will be interesting to see how much it goes for.
Could be anything from £100- £1000 IMHO.

Not seen one for sale with so many mods before - watching with interest, thanks for posting.

Sad to see one in this condition.
It brings home how old these things are now.

Now £51 and seems to have acquired a reserve - not surprisingly. Could still be a cheap buy however.

Yes, I could see that becoming a reasonable bike with a bit of money and time.
