When I've been keeping tabs on bikes for sale you can go for months without any coming up for sale.
Only 63 998r on DVLA records in 2002.
End of 2011 56 on DVLA records, 31 of which were sorned.
A lot of garage queens/ornaments out there.
This particular 998r is a particularly well travelled example http://www.visordown.com/road-tests/...1098/4104.html
There have been a few for sale recently, e-bay, dealers etc.
Most looked minty mint and the sellers wanted top ££££, one with a bit of a chequered history.
If I see any for sale over the next few weeks, I'll post up the details and what I know about it.
