Hi Tim.
This bike, obviously, was owned by the late Chris Mullan (quad-turbo) on this forum.
I've ridden this bike in 2014.
The listing is by a dealer and I can see only one error in that there are at least three Tambos in New Zealand. I'm aware of two in the north Island and this one in the South Island.

This will most likely be the first Tambo offered for sale on our shores in about 13 years.

I am saddened by this too, I was under the impression that the last time i spoke to Chris he said his collection would go to Poppy his daughter. I wonder what is or has happened to all Chris' spare parts for his bikes. I hope Poppy keeps them and his collection.
I hope his family is doing ok

I am a latecomer so did not know Chris.

However, based on my own family's experiences I do know (as many others do) that the bequested wishes of a parent/relative are only honoured by the rare few. I make no slight against Poppy, but sometimes circumstances arise that dissolve these collections of family heirlooms.:frown2:

I don't know mate but the sellers website has what is almost certainly Chris's Senna 750 listed. I don't know if the Brutale Oro is being kept by the family or has been sold already.

He was such a loss, and yes his collection appears to be up for sale in various components. No, I've not seen the Oro up for ...we are such a small community down here.

I hope the Tambo goes to a great home....hmmm that's flagged a thought.

@gremmin - would the Taupo 'individual' be interested in this?

Cheers

Sad? It seems so, but who knows what Chis said when he was still alive.

Anyway... If we want to keep the legacy alive an oldstanding forum member should buys the bikes ;)
