Hhmmm...opinions folks...other than the high price..........Yup...Odd colour scheme.....scant words from the owner...been posted up on several Bimota facebook pages...but the words don't marry up with the pictures?

See what you can spot that's not right....and theres another Bimota in the background...SB3/4?

Apologies if its anyones on here...or if its genuine..but something looks fishy...surely you present a bike for sale at its best for 10K....Other than the paint theres 5 or 6 things that don't seem right.....so lets play spot the "not so right"..

Vort...youre out of this game.....but can be a referee...

wheels standard gsxr1100wr .probably fallen over as repaint and carbon frame protectors .fasteners missing . carbon indicators , very 90,s
no pic of exhaust side. unprofessional ad showing project bikes in background.
viewing definitely recommended on this one . plus a 3- 4k drop in price.

I'd say 3-4K is all the money in it...let alone a price drop of that....Seller has now pulled the dodgy photos of incomplete pieces from his ebay ad following me messaging him re issues.......and deleted his posts from the Bimota Motorcycles Facebook page.....I do hope he's genuine.....but Bimotas are unique and for the money ask...he should really try better....if someone pays top dollar for a Bimota "pup"...they only end up on here asking for help and be-rating Bimotas...so I'm trying to save myself future pain of assisting any potential new owner.........

Oh your just being picky !!!!!
Poor Arthur Daily got to make a living somehow.
Good job I still had his original ebay post open. Here is the pic of the RHS with the foot peg mysteriously not attached and the brake lever facing south.

Marchesini wheels ....
new screen.
I'd say its a garage somewhere and they slapped an mot on it themselves.

Don't know ... its a poor ad at best, go somewhere and take so decent pictures
