Is it possible to buy a bike at the moment?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if i'm the only person seeing this but its bloody hard to buy a bike at the moment.

I'm finding that everything advertised is way over priced and being sold instantly. I recently sold my sons ttr 125 in 10 minutes after advertising it for $500 more than i paid for it, site unseen and direct deposit paid. Its crazy.

My son out grew the ttr over night and started riding my bike so now i'm on the lookout for something to use to ride with him. 

It seem everything in both country vic and metro is being snapped up fast. What are your thoughts on why? my thoughts are: its riding season, people are blowing there super they have with drawn, the bike shops have very little stock or people are more motivated to ride after being locked down?

What are your thoughts?

It's strange, i had a message from Munn's in usa & their knocking of $1k plus on some 2020 MX bikes & big $ of other bikes ? Maybe Aus doesn't have enough to go around ?

There must be a lack of bikes available for the amount of demand out there.
Mate of mine sold a mint PW50 last weekend in 7 Minutes of advertising it!!

Yeah I've noticed the same thing. I think due to sport getting cancelled due to covid people have/had their weekends free.

Prices of bikes are crazy. I am trying to get my lad to step up to the kx85 we have but its still pretty big for him so have shaved the seat, lowered suspension and if the wheels turn up I will be trying him on it for size this weekend. I actually got the wife to agree to buy a spanka kx65 as we could keep it a couple of years and only loose maybe a $1000 but holding off as yes its not much longterm but the initial outlay would come off the mortgage. Hopefully the 85 will fit him.

 

Mean while, I should try sell the ttr50 and pw50....................Anyone?

Someone bought my 2006 Husky wr250... for $4500. People are losing their minds. Prices are ridiculous. 

I picked up a 2017 300 exc at a reasonable price, then advertised my husky for $4800 because Pete at Road and River told me two strokes are fetching stupid prices. I couldn't get over the interest on a 2006 Husky!!!! insane. I honestly thought 3-3.5k MAX. 

Edit* I advetised my bike on Monday this week, sold it Wednesday.

Jesus.... If I had the cash to upgrade it would be seriously worth putting the 250 on the market....
Shame I don't have the cash to pay the difference for a newie!

Gday Mick, really interested in your bike just wondering if it comes with a bash guard?

Unfortunately, l'm working up at the mines in Qld and l'm desperate for a decent bike and willing to pay the transport back up to Qld.

So if you want to email or txt me you address, l can organise a bike carrier to pick it up next week? I can pay you straight into your account or l'll the payment with the bike carrier?

Each way mate, give a call to me

Wozza

With all those modifications it looks like its pretty much on par with all the latest top Euro bikes.
