My XT600Z 3AJ is for sale. Just £1800 with extras!

Hope you guys don't mind me posting this here! It's also in the Bikes for sale section.

Sonauto colours (Blue and Yellow), nearly new set of Bridgestone Trailwing tyres + a set of road tyres with good tread life included.
Only 40,000 kilometers (less than 25,000 miles!), fully serviced last week when the rear wheel was re-spoked at a huge cost!.

Included in the cost of the bike is a Arrow Paris-Dakar pipe, + standard pipe.

New brakes pads front and rear, new fuel taps (old ones were leaking!).
Taxed until the end of Jan, and MOT'd.

This bike is ultra reliable and has been used daily over the past 5 months for commuting only. It is in very very good condition!

In addition, I have a second tank for sale (I bought it only a few weeks ago, before I decided to buy a brand new bike). This, as far as I have been told by the guy I bought it from, is leak free, and can be snapped up at a bargain price if you are interested.

I also have a WEMOTO front enduro front light which I bought new, to use off-road, but never even took if out of the packet!. This again can be had for a bargain price if you want it.

I'm looking for a quick sale (I'm picking my new bike up in a week, and need money to pay for it!!), so have dropped the price today from £1795 for the bike, to just....

£1600.00 or near offer for the bike
£30 for the tank
£15 for the Enduro light.

Give me a call anytime if you want to discuss. I can email photos to you if required

I live in Billericay, Essex, England.

My mobile number is 07904 955282
Craig....

Maybe it's the wrong time of year to sell a bike (probably is, thinking about it), but this is a lovely bike if anyone is interested.

Make me an offer (a sensible one) and it's yours!!

I'll be advertising it again in the new year if there are no takers!.

You won't sell it that price my friend, not unless you're a dealer and even then I'd knock you down a couple of hundred quid.
ESPECIALLY at this time of year.

I`m interested in the tank.What`s the inside like, rust free ? Any large dents?If it`s free of these I`ll buy it from you. Paint work isn`t so important.

There is the usual amount of rust inside (just suface stuff, no flakes), and the right side of the tank has what looks to be like a dent repair (the guys I bought it from told me it was nothing serious). If you are interested contact me.

BTW, if it was rust and dent free, I'd be selling it for a lot more than £30!! £30's a bloody bargain!

Well, I've never sent stuff to Asia before, neither have I used surface mail, so I may not have gone to the cheapest carrier (does anyone know of a cheap/good surface carrier?).

Anyway, I've been quoted £79.99 via 'www.Parcel2go.com' If you are interested in my tank still, and are happy with this shipping cost the let me know.....or if anyone knows of a cheaper alternative to shipping via parcel2go the shout now!!.

Thanks for you interest,
Craig....

Yes,I`m still interested in the tank Craig but not at that shipping cost. Have you checked at the post office ? We can send quite large things via surface mail through the post office here. It`s a possibility.

Hi to the guy who just called me regarding my bike for sale (W00TTONJUK). Unfortunately your ISP is telling me that the email address you supplied is none existant, and I cannot contact you back on the phone number that came up on my mobile. If you want to get back in touch, with another email address then I can get those photos emailed over to you asap.

Cheers,
Craig....
