Well. Might keep it, I had high hopes too. I don't know. I feel sort of sick about selling it to be honest. I need the money but for some reason I have this strange sense of loyalty to the bike. Especially because it's the only other year models of the TT that can be road legal. I don't know. I'd like it if someone like you, or the others bought it. I don't want it to be scrapped. I kept the major parts, frame, triples and the motor. Everything else was trashed.
It'll cost me so much to get it back to normal. They resell for alot but getting the cash now to get it there is beyond me. I could finish my 125 and sell it, take the return and what little profit I make and put that into the TT, get it where I want it and sell it. But the problem is, I'm having a lot of trouble finding funding to get my 125 going. Nobody is hiring me, my wife's business is slow right now and bills are stacking up.
I had a guy offer me 275 for the triples and the motor. Almost took it until he told me he was gonna part it out. That made me feel sick, I don't want this motor parted out. Ah, hell!
Tell ya what! If nobody offers me what I want for the motor, I won't sell the thing. It isn't meant to be and I'll keep the big pig and it'll be the only 500cc I do. But, know this. If I get this 125 done and sold and still have this TT, it's gonna get on the road and it's gonna be one of the sickest street trackers you've ever seen.
