Default Looking for my old bike ...

Hullo all, I'm wondering if anyone knows the whereabouts of my old Dragstar ..



I sold it about 3 years ago, to a bloke from Cannock way I think. If anyone knows the current owner, I'd be interested to know if they ever wanted to sell it. I'd like it back for sentimental reasons as much as the fact I regret selling it

Yes there's a Norton Dominator and a Triumph Thunderbird I think should be returned to me for the combined cost of 400 I sold them at. Doesn't even have to be my old bikes.

You never know who might see this and know the owner, the owner was thinking about selling anyway, and bishbashbosh everyone's happy...

I sold it to buy a VN800 Drifter, one of the most soulless bikes ever, which makes it so much worse

Ended up buying my Triumph Speedmaster back after 18 months. And would have my last XS650 back if I could.

Evening folks, still looking for this if anyone knows the whereabouts or the owner. According to DVLA it's sorned somewhere so probably sat in someone's garage.

I know I could buy another and paint it to match, but that's not the point - this has sentimental value now.

Thanks Blue, I looked at that but I don't know if they'd give me that info just because I wanted to buy it back. Have you used it yourself?

Ewokandtuck solicitors will be only too happy to take the case on for you.....
