I really like that burnt oronge colour, looks very clean too, great stuff, not sure about the wheels, but then again I'm a big fan of black wheels, everyones taste is different, on the other hand if they were chrome like the RR decals then that would be exceptional! sunny

I quite like those wheels and always liked that colour scheme . I wouldnt chrome them unless you really like cleaning and polishing though! I speak from experience ! Nice bike

hi firefly, as ive said all in all, its a nice machine, as for the back end....well, just ignore me....its a long story, but...in a nutshell i dont like to see fireblades with the original rear mudguard chopped off. Its simply that ...MOST do seem to like the back end 'altered'...i personally do not

thats it.

enjoy your machine

That looks like a decent example, still as clean as the day you bought it ?

What is the mileage on the clock ?
