Anything Airhead over ~6,000.00 had better be special, particularly a non-runner with potentially very serious engine damage. 43K AUD? Really???? :o I'd better jump back in the pond at this point.


Do a search on Krauser MKM1000. Very, very rare and very very desirable.

Sorry, I still had the black JPS one in my mind. I'd be frightened to park an MKM anywhere except inside a Brinks armoured van  :bmw_smiley:

My bog-standard dime-a-dozen R65 is chained to the wall through the frame with an Abloy PL362 and has a Pragmasis U lock through the front wheel, forks and brake lines at home. I use a heavy chain and 7.5T master link and a welded-shut Omega link to noose around one of the 6" box sections that holds the front of the office up at work  :cowsleep:

Have you seen anything else that takes your fancy yet?

Been looking into a Laverda 1000 and am following up on another MKM. Watch this space.
