  1. there is an XR400 for sale here that i would seriously think of buying. but im in NSW, and i have no idea about getting an inspection done in VIC.
    has anyone ever brought from these guys before? is it a reasonable place to buy? who could i get to take a look at the aforementioned bike?


  2. I bought my CBR from them 14,000kms ago ~ 6 months. I haven't had any problems with the bike. I think you should get a trustworthy and thorough mech minded person to look over it for you. Sometimes good shops sell dodgy bikes, sometimes dodgy shops sell good bikes.
  3. Dom, lets go take a look at it ourselves. I'm keen if you are!

    The one you PM'd me about has been removed..
  4. I used to share a house with a bloke who worked for them. I would say port80 has hit the nail on the head. I'd be paying for a condition report if it was my money.
    Having said that, the bike I bought off them gave me no trouble.
  5. I've been in there once, only recently in fact, with a friend of mine who was after a Spada. There was a cute little one, '88 model - in good condition, some light rust showing on the engine casing, but he (Ray Quincy) wouldn't budge from $4750 :shock:

    You can pick up a '99+ VTR for that (if you're lucky)

    No amount of haggling would get the price down.

    but i suppose it is like anything. Sometimes you can pick up a good deal, sometimes not.
    Maybe he wasn't willing to bargain on price cos I'm a girl. Maybe he had a bad day......

    I must say that the salesguy (who's name I don't remember :oops: ) was really good
  6. vic, i definatley tried the links page after you made your feelings clear to that bloke in the new riders section :LOL:

    wayne for sure mate! i wouldnt mind doing a trip down the spur and great ocean road. 3 day road trip? yeah i saw that someone had removed that other one. maybe a good thing, he was a regular in the trouble shooting section ie "im a quamby and snapped a bolt in the frame" :LOL:
