    wouldn't let my mate Graham take a 12K 110 out for a test drive without agreeing to buy it!

    Has some nice gear, but wouldn't be confident in dealing with them if something went wrong TBH.

    Was hoping someone had brought one or knew someone who had one off them.
    can put up with hassle more worried about the quality

    m8 of mine has one.

    The gearbox, transfer boxand prop shafts haven't needed any work doing on them.

    Welding on the chassis, new exhaust, new water pump, new radiator, hub seals, new fuel tank, new rear xmember, rebuilt the engine, respray and rebuilt the steering are a few problems that have cropped up over the past 2 years.

    dont,just dont. the guy is an idiot, most of his motors are over priced, in really poor nick, or in some way dodgy. my 90 came from him, sis paid 5k for it from him, i had to rebuild most of the braking system,replace the rear xmember (which wasnt just a little knackered, it literally disintegrated on the way home) and redo the electrics.
    And on the 8th day,god created bikes, and the devil went unto the dealer and bought one

    All I'll say about MRM is avoid, respraying some old shed with fancy metallic grey paint doesn't mean its worth 10k

    Buy with knowledge and eyes and he doesn't mind you poking about for hours on your own, in fact I pulled bits off for the best part of two hours. Matt is not a super expert and makes them shiny rather than anything else. However he does have good stock and generally not over priced. No trouble with test drives etc. Don't expect dealer service! But he will haggle for folding money. I've heard nothing good about yan the landy man. Liverage jolly pricy.

    The saying goes "you get what you pay for". Bought my 90 nearly six years ago and apart from regular maintenance and mods the only things that have gone is a wheel bearings and a clutch master cylinder. Oh and 2 weeks after the guarantee expired a cam chain tensioner went. Liveridge fixed the problem with not a quibble, in fact they couldn't apologise enough.

    When my m8 quired EP90 leaking out of a hub after the trip home MRM sent him a seal in the post.

    If ANY dealer said it was "sold as seen" rather than offering a guarantee the alarm bells would be deafening :-)

    Liveridge are doing the engine conversion (and some other bits n bobs) and all work is guaranteed for 12 months.

    Have a close look at his 'Seller's payment instructions' under the 'P&P and payments' tab. Especially note the emphatic lack of warranty, the non-returnability of any deposit and the odd statement about the presumed lack of integrity of any vehicle over 15 years old. This last bit is often at odds with the vehicle descriptions.

    His descriptive copy and his selling manner are both very enthusiastic.

    The main thing is not to give him any money until you've decided to buy the vehicle having inspected it.
