NOS XS650 front calipers on Ebay £100 each 'Buy It Now'
« on: October 07, 2014, 08:43:22 PM »
NOS XS650 front calipers £100 each.
Nothing to do with me but I just happened across the listing. He's offering left and right for £100 each on a 'Buy It Now'.
I know that's quite a lot of dough but it looks like a good deal to me.

I made him an offer and I have bought them.
NOS brake callipers for £100, costs that to restore old ones..

The project X parts collection is coming on a treat, just brake pipes now then start refurbing the forks.
