Back to biking after a sabbatical


New Member
Hi Folks,

Just returned to biking after a bit of a sabbatical.

Yesterday I bought a Jan 93 (on a K) FireBlade (Frame No SC28-21000019), almost 100% original (apart from white wheels) with 41,000 miles from new, all MOTs, service invoices, tool kit, stamped service book and owners manual.

It does have a damaged top cowl due to a low speed drop where the indicator punched a small hole through the air intake and the side panel has minor road-rash, but been told by Dream Machine it's easily repairable. I would prefer to track down either a NOS (hen's teeth!) or very good used OE parts - any leads much appreciated.

A couple of photos attached.
