So looking for something to have a pootle about on. Preferable a biggish twin and running. Don't mind if it needs tinkering with, I fully expect it since my budget is basically non existent due to needing to do work to our house. Preferably in the east anglian area- norfolk/ suffolk. Anyone know of anything for sale at pocket money budget?

You can have my ER5 . On SORN , may need a back tyre . Lovely bike , reliable . I've had a lot of fun on this bike but I can't justify running two vehicles at the moment . Sold Sold Sold Sold .

There are companies that will transport the bike for you.

I must admit £500 for that bike really is a bargain in it's own right if it's only needing a potential rear tyre. @fastbob, good Sir, I salute you! :cheers:
Ride safe everyone, hope to see you all out there!

Well I'm now out due to roof needing more repair than we thought and budget going to sorting that. Many thanks to Bob for the offer on the bike. I'm off to sit the wrong way round on a chair and make motor noises as that's as close as I'm likely to get to a bike for the forseeable. Well until @Stu finishes repairing that f650 he's promised me for free.
