I know the TB is fine and dandy and the calipers are fine... the discs are ok - can be used easily.. but will need replacing in a few... pads - couldn't really see in the time I had...

Sorry to add this also, but it doesn't look like you're getting everything you need to fit the AP Calipers either.

I may be wrong of course and the seller just may not of added everything to the pic but I would check.

I have to agree with samuel though. You can pick up brand new sets including absolutely everything needed for a straight swap on flea bay for £200-250 and 52mm TB's are normally about £60-85.

My advice - hang fire and wait for a better deal.

there is a member on ebay who sells the calipers, discs and pads (Complete front hubs) for around £200 - Brand new.

TB brand new is £120

Therefore i think £300 is way too expensive for used parts. You can buy new for that!!

IMO of course

that's the set I bought!!
Great value. (3195harris from memory)

Not sure my missus would've been happy about me keeping them on the bad like that though!!!

Well luckily for me (or not) mine split up with me last week so the main lady in my life now is Tellula my F:)

And it was the lightest point in my room at the time for a good pic ;)

Yeah it was the ebayer you said Pete, really prompt service too :)
