Hi

I just bought back my original SP1 which I purchased in 2000 and sold in 2003
It had done 7000 miles when I sold it and it now has 11300 miles.

It needs some work as it has been sitting around for a while so will be a bit of a project
I am based in the UK.

Welcome back!

Met a guy a few months ago who sold his SP1 ten years ago, bought it back recently with a mere +1,500km on the clocks, custom paint job and plenty goodies, the bike lived in the living room mostly..
He is now in the process of returning the bike to 100% OEM (incl painting it back red), hence me getting a good deal on the Gilles rearsets

Old enough to know better, young enough not to care.

Beautiful!
I love the Castrol livery, Cal Crutchlow has been running it all season this year. So cool to see it back racing.
