Big G on the smart way into resto bar­gains

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - PROJECT HUNTER -

ebay

Most peo­ple’s first call. Lots of choice, and a good place to com­pare prices. Look be­yond UK shores, too. Europe is brim­ming with old project bikes, so check the lo­cal ebay pages – if you can find some­thing cheap enough it might well be worth the has­sle of get­ting it back here. Poorly po­si­tioned ads can of­ten be missed by many po­ten­tial buy­ers, and turn into a bar­gain for you.

Gumtree

Less pop­u­lar than ebay, but all the bet­ter for it be­cause there’s more chance of pick­ing up a steal. Prices are set, rather than reached through bids, so it’s eas­ier to work out what a seller may take for a bike/project. The worst they can say to a cheeky bid is ‘no’.

PS clas­si­fieds

Yup, find your next bike/project right here. Sub­scribers get to see them first, so you know what to do.

Lo­cal pa­per

Con­trary to pop­u­lar be­lief, not every­one has the in­ter­net, and some folk still pre­fer to sell their bikes the tried and tested way. That means gems com­pletely off the radar of web users.

Ts-ex­port.com

Never heard of it? It’s the smart way into Ja­pan’s huge sec­ond­hand bike, spares and project mar­ket, with ad­vice on bid­ding, ship­ping, pay­ment, the lot.
