The Bimota ‘font’ on the address label was a very nice touch…. Careful packaging and bonus goodies are the norm from 2bims… thanks mate Wink

It seems that you are feeling lucky for it and now you can unpack the stuff and show us what's inside.

Haha, yes...

I'm a little bit remiss as to whether or not i should share this joke...

A bloke was jailed,

He was put in a cell with an imposing, menacing cell mate.

The cell mate abruptly asked? Who do you want to be?

Mummy, or Daddy?

Of course

The new inmate was overjoyed that he had a choice!

He answered Daddy!

The cell mate answers...

Come over here and suck mummy's c###.

Sorry!

OH YES !!!



Nice early alloy tank and spotless , not sure weather to leave it silver or have thought of getting it sprayed red with the Bimota clear down to the burr alloy ?

The DB5R is nearing 100% now , taken a year to find a tank !!!!! Very Happy

Only one more bit to go , but struggling finding a replacement headlight TBH Crying or Very sad

Yeah, mostly superficial damage to the 5R , pegs, levers , engine casing , fairing etc.
Tank was a bargain , last alloy one I saw was about €1k ( I think) , nearly got one off BCP with the levers/pegs but that one was , shall we say, passed its best and not cheap. I had to take one for the team on the bits from BCP but could not stomach the price for a very secondhand tank.

Paid €400 for this one from a chap in Italy !!!!! only bit he had other than RHS fairing and I need the LHS !!!! Story of my life !!

Just the last few bits to go and then re-assemble !!! Very Happy

Gotta love an ally tank! I like the red with bare aluminium ‘Bimota’ idea.

I’m glad you held off and found a bargain.
