Around £70 postage plus 20 odd import tax to SA, needed tidying up but supplied FOC otherwise.
Drop by for a brew if you're in the neighbourhood anytime, M25 J18.

Ideally would like a set of Martin's pipes to let the motor free a little but understand he doesn't make them for the 3XV any more  :(
Saw the Dogfight set on eBay recently but didn't think a standard R would benefit from them as much? Hoping one day a set of Martin's might come up on the forum looking for a home  :o

Saw this bundle on Buyee, cheers Bulldogboy  (-P)
Hopefully the NLA brackets needed for the bodywork are all included  ::) Now need to order the other bracket associated periphery from Webbs/Fowlers if in stock.

 (-P) no worries, hope the right parts are included. Different way of searching on yahoo auctions to ebay, if you put in 3xv fairing or 3xv cowl in to yahoo auctions for example nothing comes up, you have to go to categories on the left, click automobiles, click motorcycles,click auto parts,click cowls and fenders, when all the cowls come up, put tzr 250 3xv in the search box and just 3xv cowls will come up, as i said its a bit quirkey!

Maybe if the brackets are that difficult to come by I should tap up my neighbour who apparently has his own CNC machine to knock up a few extras? (he has one of those four wheeled replica projects and is now looking at a 3D printer to produce templates for parts replication).

Aaah  ::) Do you have a picture or part number for it please? Have attached thread link to missing brackets diagram again. Not sure which one you mean, sorry . Hoping its something I may already have or if not, still available to order? I am now on my knees praying again.

Didn't realise when I originally got the bike that the missing brackets were going to be more of a headache than the missing bodywork  :-[
