I’m no expert by any standard but it looked a little Frankenstein to meI have spoken to him and he doesn't regard it as a replica as much as it is an SF with lots of SFC bits ..... but also Suzuki wheels and front forks. Easier to put 'replica' in the advert than explain it all I suppose.
Very nice gentleman.
No offence meant you know better than me just looked like a mishmash of some parts to me which wouldn’t be my cup of tea. Regardless looks like Terry is very interested from the UKFor $9500 CAD that looks to be a very nice SF.
I sold my 70 SF for $8500 3 years ago ;o(
What do you consider to be Frankenstein considering SF's were designed to be modified for Cafe.
The SFC Factory version is nothing more then a modified SF and I would never want a SFC cam for daily Street and HWY cruising.
Buy it Jim you will not regret it ;o)
This is a good place to start (they've shipped ~10 of my bikes so far..) https://shippio.com/ ask for Giles (Ernsting) Giles at shippio dot com (I think he owns the company) based in Northampton but also have a depot nr Heathrow too (and worldwide contacts/affiliations)Can anyone recommend an import company to the UK or know roughly what it would cost. I am interested in this bike
I will send you a PM but he is a knowledgeable fellow with an SF0 as well (he bought it new so he's been into Laverdas for almost 50 years) and he had a 3C that burned up in a garage fire.I have contacted tfx international and am waiting for their reply, have also contacted the owner and am waiting his reply thanks for the contact Topendz
Jim, you said that you have spoken to the seller, what is your opinion of the bike/seller. Not an easy one to answer I know but I am trying to get info
Did you try Giles at Shippio? He is well connected in the global freight industry. Explain your dilemma to the seller and offer him CAD6500 (or similar). Getting it crated and to a convenient port will be the hard part...Having had a quote from a shipping company of nearly £2000 to transport the bike to the UK I can't go ahead with the purchase, I spoke to John(the seller) at length he is a nice bloke, I'm gutted that I can't proceed
