Project Bike Needs Parts
So you have that project bike that you are repairing or customizing. You might have bought a frame at an auction site or Craigslist, or perhaps you have a motorcycle sitting at home that needs serious fixing. What’s stopping you is the laundry list of parts you need to get it going.
You are looking for a cheap dirt bike for sale and you happen to notice the pricing on salvage title bikes at auction. Should you buy a salvage dirt bike at auction? If you are careful and patient you can find a pretty good off-road bike at a fraction of the cost of a used motorcycle. I’ve summarized some of the main challenges facing the buyer of a used bike and the advantages.
Some people simply like repairing motorcycles more than they enjoy riding them. I myself am one of those people. I have been buying and repairing wrecked motorcycles for several years now. During that time I have found that working on a wrecked motorcycle is better for me than a new one. Once I came to that conclusion, the question I asked myself was:
If you have ever seen wrecked motorcycles for sale you might have wondered who is buying them. There are actually several reasons why someone might buy a wrecked motorcycle.
The first and most common reason is to fix it. A lot of times when you see wrecked motorcycles for sale you are seeing vehicles that can still be repaired and used normally. If the motorcycle is wrecked beyond repair it may still be used for parts. The thing about buying a wrecked motorcycle to consider is, what happened to it? Just because it is considered to be wrecked does not mean it is beyond repair.
