    I'm selling the big Gixxer.

    I originally bought it thinking I would convert it to electric, but it will require too much compromise. I need a custom frame and a ground up build. So this ICE was spared!

    I have done one race day at Wanneroo since I bought it and it is about 10 times more capable than this rider :) Previous owner dyno tuned it for >160 hp. Has a pair of Dunlop Q2s on it and despite my best efforts they are still in good shape.

    This bike is ready to race - crash knobs, sharks fin and case sliders are installed already. Asking $7000 happy to negotiate. Will send interstate at buyer's expense. Inspections most welcome, test rides are strongly discouraged ;)

    PM or email me at christophergrahamjones at google's email website.

    I try to edit posts and it just kind of stalls... anyway, I have decided to shave $500 off the asking price. Need funds sooner :)

    Price is now $6500 negotiable!

    FUCK!

    This bike has been stolen!

    Some clown took if toe a "quick ride around the block" and never fucking returned! He left a shitty white Mazda van (which is not a vehicle of interest according to police) but the bike went missing at about 7.40 pm tonight (Sunday).

    AAARRRGGGHH!!! I feel like suck a dickhead :( If any West Australians spot this bike in circulation, please report it.

    :(

    fuckin' lowlife :(

    Was it still in raceglass (as in no lights, etc)? 7.40pm was dark. Hope someone reports a bike riding around without lights on.

    You got its VIN/Chassic No?

    So sorry to hear of your loss, Chris. I hope you recover it.

    I got VIN, Engine number, pictures... even got his van in the driveway!

    If he was trying to steal it, he's done a pretty dumb job of it... At first I though the'd fallen off, but then I checked the van to see what's going on... Nothing. It's been emptied of everything.

    But yeah, he would have an accomplice I would imagine.

    Well the bike has been listed as stolen and the cops took a statement. I'm pretty sure they'll have the guy in for questioning pretty soon since he's left a papertrail a mile long. But my hopes for the bike still being in one piece aren't high.
