I've never seen one before,and I know zero about them, but Bike Radar gave them a good write up. It was a 900 bike in 2009 that they reviewed.

I note that the seller doesn't mention a year. Are you thinking its been knicked?

I have an 05 olympus and it looks nowt like that collection of mismatched parts the fool is trying to pass off as an olympus.

That's what one should look like.

Alarm bells - paint job - eye right!

Is it my imagination or does the rear rotor look bigger than the front?

Pity that is is so difficult to trust flea bay, looked at and questioned about a set of E150sl forks for my bike or spares at least, put up by some one who did not have a clue and got stuff wrong, thae seemed to be selling jeans mostly not bike bits, result was it withdrawn with no reply soon afterwards.
