 ;D Hi there,your good lady friend is right on the doorstep of the "Ad
     Mag" thats the local Sheffield "free ads paper" Tell her this 
     should be her first port of call looking for a used bike.
     As in all things second-hand its a case of buyer beware!

Does she want a "bike" or an SOHC4?

Loads of choice for the first.

Not much around for the second, other than expensive restorations or ratty 400/4s

As a first bike (passed test?), a Bandit/Fazer/Hornet/CB500-2 might be found for that much, but for anything decent budget at least £1000
