  • let your shit be my shit

    hello everyone one, i am new here and i just recently got my license (big noob) so i dont know how things are done here but i am looking to buy a cheap 250 like extremely cheap running and registered about 1000 or so. so please let me have your shitty bike i promise to love it like i bought it for 10000.

    those that are going to advise me that i should save and get a proper bike thank you but i cant really afford anything more than that as i would have to sell my car and stuff. but in a perfect world we would all be able to save and buy the bikes of our dreams

    A lot of people would advise saving up a bit, as a $1000 bike will probably have a few issues that will cost money to fix. If you can't afford more than $1000 for your bike, will you be able to afford any repairs that might need to be done to it?

    Otherwise, good luck in your endeavours.

    As well as that, can you afford at least 3rd party insurance on your bike? Sure, you might not see much need to insure your cheap bike for any damages, but what if you rear end a Porsche or something?

        You know what, I have been in the same boat right up until today. I have seen my budget go from $4k, down to $2500 down to looking at $1000scooters all weekend. But you know what, fuck that. I am just going to wait, after seeing the handlebars bash my knees at the slightest turns and realising I weigh more than the fucking scooter I am just going to wait till I can get my budget back to the 3-4K mark for a more reliable bike, plus the insurance and rego.

          Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

          when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                  21000kms? that's almost negative kms.

                        If you have some mechanical moxy, buy a repairable write-off say, CBR or GPX 250, they usually go for 3-400ish. Do a bit of a fixer-upper with second hand fairings and the like, I reckon you could get her bought and re licenced for a grand or just slightly over.

                            CBR's are cheap to repair. especially if you get a decent repairable write off. ie: mostly superficial damage, no major parts bent like forks and check for cracked frames. I had my 250 writen off when I got hit at slow speed. All fairings had a mark of somesort and the pipe was scratched. Got a few grand in insurance and bought my bike back for $600.

                            You can get fairing kits from china for about $250. They are thinner than the original but they look the part. You can get a top and seat fairing (still use the same side fairings) from TYGA (looks like the R1 shape) for about a grand if you want something real pretty. You can get all the parts you need online really cheaply and I'm sure someone could give you a hand with the mechanics. I could help but you'd have to supply tools.

                            They are the easiest bike to work on and are great learner bikes to boot. Reliable and predictable.
