It must not be on eBay UK, at least I don't find a listing.
The only Bridgestone I see currently is this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1968-BRIDGESTONE-175-HURRICANE-SCRAMBLER-CLASSIC-PROJECT-/180735489950?pt=UK_Motorcycles&hash=item2a14acb79e
As of a few minutes ago it too is gone.

I see no 350 GTR on eBay UK, so you must have a private connections or be using another sales format which led you to the bike.

If you don't mind me asking, and the rest of the crowd knowing, what was the monetary damage incurred???
Market "comps" of recent sales are a handy guide for those searching for a 350 or thinking of buying one.

Regards,
Steve

He advertised it at £3900, after email negotiations I got it for £3400.

Only problem is it's over 300 miles away through the countries worst traffic and I'm not able to collect it for two weeks.

Great purchase - it's going to cost more than that to make mine look that good.
I know I mentioned in some other post (maybe late July?) the part number for a Kawa 650 condensor that is a perfect replacement condensor for the GTR.
Sorry for not finding thread myself, my wife is telling me to get off the internet and relax on the sofa to recover from the deer collision.

The Brough Superior was in the aution, it was expected to sell for £280,000, yes over a quarter of a million Pounds Sterling.

The Suzuki RE5M is mine. :)

Pick my GTR up this Saturday. :) :) :) :) :) :)

That's 440,811.34 USD!!!
That would take a VERY serious buyer/collector!
Gads.....and YIKES, too.

Super funky and gaudy muffler/tailpipes.
They are outlandish!!!
Period specific stuff.
