I thought £3500 seemed quite reasonable.

The T500 is tacked on at the end £5750.

My T500 has an agreed value of £8500 and I've had two buyers waving £8k bundles of cash at me 8-) the prices of what where everyday work bikes are going stupid now.
While genuine classic superbikes prices are falling? I tried to sell my Kat for £8k and apart from the usual scam artists I didn't get a sniff :?

The price of spare parts ( when you can even get them) is pretty high. It doesn’t take long to get to a spend of a couple of Grand.

Suzuki have discontinued loads of parts and prices of bikes will probably rise as you may need to buy a spare bike just to get the bits you need.

I just had to pay £150 for a used and slightly butchered centre stand for my X7 and £158 for a rear mudguard. I need a rear brake pedal, but that is also £150! It all adds up very quickly.

Of course, this assumes you want something shiny!

Agreed. I bought Krusty for € 500,- but am 8 times that deep already :roll:
It's faster to break than to repair.
