Big G on the smart way into resto bargains
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.
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’.
Yup, find your next bike/project right here. Subscribers get to see them first, so you know what to do.
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.
