too bad, I have some prehistoric remains of a rat/survival 1981 cmt400 in the garage that could be yours if you fancy a continental trip.

Thanks for the offers, I will explain what I want to do. I am after a air cooled single or twin ala sr 500, xs 650, etc for around a grand. I want to build a cafe/bobber cross over like www.meanmachines.com.au bike but having moved to a bigger house with a massive mortgage can't afford a bonnie or w650 kwak. So thanks for the offer but would struggle with an in line four. Cheers anyway
