I think there was MOTOREX but I think they have stopped importing the Skylines for new customers. Do you know of any other dealer or ads of private parties posting for Nissan Skyline GTR sale?

Yes, thats them but I never kept a track of them. Dealers in the UK are much more interesting since the car is more popular there. Are you looking for a Skyline here in India?

Yes, we can meet up again. You can join us with your car when we ride to town. There's a bhpian Xehaust who had joined us in his car once. Your ride on anku's 954 will have to wait atleast 15 days now as he went to Gujarat yesterday.

Not really but like most Bhpians in India, I too crave to drive one in India. But dont really know where to start. Have lots of mix-match thoughts like buying a compatible Nissan shell in India and then importing and plonking a stock RB26dett in it with minor mods which is affordable for a daily ride. Budget being too low like 10-11 laks. My calculations are like:
Shell = 1 lak
import JDM stock engine landed cost = 4.5 lak
suspension and brakes = 1.5 lak
body work and paint = 1 lak
miscellenous cost = 1 lak
minor mods like exhaust, injectors, filters, interiors = 50k
labor :1 lak

I know there are various other cost that I may have mis-estimated and not taken into account. Maybe I never really got serious with it as I always thought it to be out of budget criteria.
Have read various threads on engine swaps in India and realize that my budget is preety low. Maybe I am just waiting for some right thing to happen.
guys, sorry for going off topic.

If your budget was 16-17 then you wouldn't have to bother with all that because there is an R32 GT-S in Bangalore for sale right now.

Here's a '98 600 F3 that I had checked out a few months ago. A very good bike that I wouldn't mind buying.

At one point of time, there were so many CBR600s in B'lore.It was the most commonly seen sportsbike. Remember seeing this Yellow-green CBR on Brigade Rd all the time.

The red & white R1 posted above was disqualified in the '06 SR in Bombay and the the guy riding it threw a stupid tantrum by riding like an idiot with so many people around. He could have easily hurt someone.

Ah! The 900 RR seems to be Netchef's.

Yessir. Guilty as charged.
Would love to know where and when it was shot. For starters, she has the factory silencer on and I changed to a Yosh carb job a year and a half ago if not more... perhaps the compound of Tandoor where I lunched?? Few places I ever leave her untended, and when I do, I'm nervous as a gator at a dentists.

Monsieur Asrani HAS to be a photo-journalist. he just has to.
