I bought this from Roy Mcdonald a year or so ago and have not used it much. Now I have my Alpha I am unlikely to use it much in the future and could use the room in the garage.

Custom built from a frameset by Laid Back bikes it's a quality build based on a Simano XT 2 x 10 speed system. I've added Rotor Q rings and a frame bag in my ownership.

I do have a copy of the original build invoice which was over £3000 in late 2016.

Looking at the components I doubt this has done even 1000 miles - would make a great race bike, but also suitable on the road.

I'm based in Exmouth, Devon, but will be attending Hillingdon next weekend.

Happy to deasl with couriers or could potentially box it up and send with Parcel Force, but assembly would be required.

£925.

If my balance wasn't so crap I would be all over that, especially as I'm down in Devon next Saturday.

Nik, just looking at the other photos in the flickr album, I know less than SWA about motor bikes but what is that stealth/off road machine, it looks ace!

You piqued my interest Ian and I've just checked out the rest of the bicycle photo album. I want to spray my black Pedersen orange now and take my Amplifier MTB off the wall. A man of taste

Any idea of the size of frame / seat and X seam? If built for Roy then I guess it's not going to fit a taller and heavier rider - so I can stop thinking about it!

The off road motorcycle was originally a Honda Fireblade which is a road bike. I'm a big fan of Mad Max 2 and so built something in the style of the film. Was a fun project. Thinking of building a two wheel faired bike for a project when I retire in a few years. Do I just keep the fujin and build a carbon shell? Add a couple of retractable wheels for launch and bingo! How hard can it be, LOL!

It will fit in a Paul Davies D6 shell if you can find one.< id="BFI_" style="width: 1px; height: 1px; display: none;">
