WR 450 in Upington...can anyone help?
« on: September 13, 2017, 04:04:52 pm »
Hi guys. I've been looking for a WR450 and came across one that seems really good, but it's in Upington...and I am not! Just thought I'd see if there are any enormously kind WD's in that area who would be willing to take a look at it for me and let me know if it's a good buy? Would love to see it in person, will drive up from cape town if I have to, but it would be a great help if there's someone closer who knows bikes.
Thanks, Caron

There's this guy that once paid a holding deposit and drove all the way to Pofadder to buy a bike only to find it was a scam. :(

Hmmm thanks, hadn't even thought of that! Maybe I should rather just be patient and wait til I can see a bike locally  :thumleft:

Do you want a specific year or price?

I don't have a specific year model in mind, would be good if it was 2008 or newer I guess. Would also be great if it was street legal, but not a deal breaker if not, can convert it I believe. Something not raced to death. Mid R30's

I'm in Upington tomorrow

Time is just tight, as Amageza starts tomorrow night.  I can do stuff between 11:00 and 12:00
