Hi,
There's a KB1 on eBay which I'm tempted by but I'm unsure if it's overpriced.
Any thoughts please.
Thanks.

As with most Bimota's its worth what you are willing to pay because you probably will not find another one to compare it to .
Seems to have had a bit of engine work , which may or may not be your bag. OK, clocks are missing so you got to take the mileage as whatever , but then on a 30 something bike that would probably never be correct anyway.
So down to condition and what you think is a fair price for it really.

Youre trying to use you head and let it rule over your heart......not the best way to consider....as you may rue the day you let it go....

We all may like to think we will profit from our hobbies...finding the bike of your dreams on ebay at a dealers? Well....it will be well priced with some research....It would be hard to find another at that price in Europe or the USA given the current Euro and $ exchange rate against the GBP....and then theres the hassle of shipping and registering and flying over to see it in the flesh...all extra cost...and then theres "Brexit"...will even 2nd hand items from Europe attract VAT and Import tax??...THey do if from outside the EU currently....

Looks pretty well all there with the key parts. Clocks missing so I would expect its an import at some point - easy enough to get a set if you want originality. Tank breather reservoir missing - again another easy fix. Otherwise go and see as the price is around the mark. have a look inside the fairing for any repairs etc, other than that make your own mind up. Very Happy Very Happy
