Project bikes

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' started by synrgy, Feb 6, 2014.

  1. Hi all,

    Apart from ebay, gumtree, tradingpost & swap meets where are you getting your project bikes from ?

    Any secrets that i dont know about ?
  2. Networking. Let everyone around you know what you're looking for. Picked up my CB1100F and VF100R that way ;)

    You could also look in the relevant forums for sales

  3. It depends on the age/type of bike.

    If it's an older type, you may need to ring around some wreckers to see what they have. Otherwise try "find a part", you'll be surprised what some people have hidden away. Ended up buying quite a few Suzuki GT's (mid 70's) from a wrecker in Sydney (now closed) that had them stored in a farm shed a few hours from his shop (along with spare engines etc). Also visiting some in person can show the wrecker that you're serious about buying and likely to be more helpful that a random call, especially if you're not 100% sure what you're looking for.
