    We have the 'Found on eBay' thread for classics, but so often we find bike online that are simply a really good buy. And others may be interested in.

    So post them up here!

    I knew of a great one, but it's already sold. Lurch knows the details ;)

    So here's another one, a canberra girl i know who has since upgraded to an FZ-1

    It's a damn good buy for either a first bike, or a second "around town" bike, and it's in good nick too

    A very underrated bike of the 90's. Supposedly the 600 was crap, but the 900 was quite the comfy ball tearer.

    I love TRXs but that one looks trashy.

    Valid point
    It's in Spray-can Matte-Black ffs. bahaha.

    But as a starting point, it's had a light rebuild, and has plenty of potential... :D

    This bike is being sold by the same bloke in Adelaide I bought the BMW R1200C from. It is the second time it has been up and he isn't getting any interest so you may be able to snap it up for the $5,000 starting price. He has been very helpful in getting my bike, sending heaps of photos and updating me regularly.

    RE: TRX - I actually don't mind how they tackled the pillion seat. Exhaust not to my taste though.

    For $3500, you can get a good nic original TRX that would be a better start.

    That R1 looks good except for that headlight. That would be the first thing I would be changing if I was to get something like that

    The engine work makes it well worth I think, plus it's basically a blank slate.
