Price Check on an RC Bike (Again, lol)
 
Hey,

Was looking for an RC Bike set up and have come across another one.

Was hoping I could tell you the spec of it, etc, and what it comes with and what it doesn't as well as other info I know and you let me know what you think to it as well as what you think about the price.

OK, here goes:

NUOVA FAOR SF501 Chassis
Mint Condition - Raced/used only once and never crashed - Ran for 15 mins
Fully built and painted (See image below)
Comes with front cable disc brake unit
Two brand new Futaba S3003 servos
Fitted with a brand new Novak SS5800 brushless motor system
Comes complete with original box with instructions and the box for the Novak system including instructions.
Had the fairing modded so it can lean further (The mod that most people carry out right away)

For this the seller would like 200 and 8.50 postage.

On top of this the following are required to use:
7.2 volt battery
Charger
Transmitter (2 or 3 channel - If two then Y-Cable needed)

So - What do you guys think of this spec? And how ideal would it be for a beginner? How does the price sound?

Many Thanks

Dan

200 pounds!! What is that, $250-300 USD or something??? My understanding is that you can't even get the Novak b/l for that over there. If the price isn't a mistake, I'd jump all over that one!

link to pic didn't come thru.

Yes, please buy it before I email the guy to buy it myself!

Insane.

Hey,

At the current exchange rate that would be $369.78 and $15.72 for postage.

That price is def. correct - No mistake. Though as it is listed other places the guy will not sell it for that if he gets offered more by anybody else.

Does this pic work, btw? Just a smaller version of it:

Buy it, buy it, buy it!! Paypal the guy the money right this minute, before it's gone. Tell him, here's the money now put it in the mail. That is definitely a good deal, if the spec he lists is accurate.

You will have to ask RastaManBob, or log into smartgroups and see if it's listed there.

Hi,

hi98gs - Sorry but the link to the seller would be of no use. I have just paid for the bike and it should be posted to me by tomorrow - Woohoo!! :cool:

Thanks

Dan
