Best bargain...

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by undii, Sep 4, 2007.

  1. A guy from down the street told me from hearing and seeing me go by made him buy a bike :grin: He's had his bike licence since 18/19 and is mid 30s, he just never bothered to BUY a bike. Anyway, he showed the bike to me, he brought it from a mate, a 1992 CBR 600 F2, 34K kms (could be genuine far as I know, the guy hardly rode it and has owned it for yonks) for... drum roll..


    $2,500..

    What

    A

    Bargain!!!!



    He rode the spur on Sunday and said he had MIGHTY fun :wink: I reckon he got an absolute bargain, definitely the best bargain when talking about motorbikes of recent that I know of... Does anyone else have great bargain stories??

    I hope this fits in GD, didn't think it would fit bike reviews due to not being a review at all, just glad for him that he got a bargain AND that I got him back to riding and buying a bike. He's got a couple kids around 4-6 and a baby/toddler. He said he won't be trying to break any speed records at all and not break any body parts ;) He relies on them too much for work (a tradie of possibly a plumber by the looks of it.


    I'll see if I can get pics, we hardly see each other at moment with our lifestyles/routines. The bike doesn't look like it's been dropped and was kept in good condition/servicing from what I was told. Man.... still shocked, happy about it... $2,500. NICE ONE!

  13. Last night on Ebay, bought a 2002 Suzuki VL800 Volusia..
    $6501 with only 20k on it

    Market value for low kl models is between $9,000 & $10,000. You can get them for $8,500 with high Kl.

    Now all I gotta do is make sure it is genuine :)
