    If any of you lovely chaps or chapesses out there are trading in (or selling) your 765 RS in the next month or two, please let me know.

    I am looking for one for a race project and want to avoid paying retail for one if I can avoid it, so looking to buy privately and will pay more than you are offered as a part-ex.

    Long shot, I know. But if you don't ask.....

    Hi Mate, my 765RS is long gone now but the thread caught my interest, what is the race project, what class would you ride in? Just being nosy really!

    I've been Drag racing in ET Bike for the last 3 years and in 11.10 Straightliners class before that.
    I won the 11.10 class in 2016 on the Exploder (was 8th in ET Bike, but only did 3 of 4 rounds) and have been 4th in ET Bike for the last 2 seasons. 2017 on the Exploder and last year a mix of Exploder and D955i - both suffering gearbox issues.
    After a long chat with Clive Wood, the only decent gearbox Triumph have made is in the 675/765/800 engines, so a decision has been made to look for a 765RS for this year.
    The budget will be really tight though for this year, my long suffering, but incredibly supportive wife has agreed I can dip into the garden landscaping/house rebuild fund to support this year's racing.

    There was a damaged repairable on eBay. It went to £6400 but for some reason is now relisted.

    I've no connection to it.

    Do you have a link or item number as I can't find it - I suppose it could have been removed if the previous buyer turned up.

    I'll have to ask a mate as he was the one watching it as such.
