Update my 626 has been scrapped. Saving for BMW e46 325i
Seems like a lot of money for someone else's half assed project. You'd be better off getting a running bike to do a cafe racer project with.Contemplating buying this, gents... Any of you moto geeks want to give me an estimated cost of getting it on the road...
Electrics I can do on my own, I can remove and put the engine back on, tear down and rebuild of the motor would need a good mechanic to do (have one in mind)...
Odometer is also a new odometer and reading 0km... Any issues regarding registering a bike with a false odometer reading?
You'd be lucky to get an SR250 for less than 3k these days...Seems like a lot of money for someone else's half assed project. You'd be better off getting a running bike to do a cafe racer project with.
If you have 3k why not go for a TU250X? It just seems like a significant risk for a bucket that you'd need to put quite a bit of cash into.You'd be lucky to get an SR250 for less than 3k these days...
I reckon I can get it back up and running for 1.5k, if I can get him down to 800... That would be great...
Doesn't need much to get it going: the electronics are really simple; would need to hone out the cylinder and get a piston ring repair kit; fix a couple of half arsed fixes; roadworthy, etc...
Cheapest TU250X I could find in Victoria is 3.1k... It has been dropped though and looks like it's had a good drag along the ground (nothing structural though: eg: no cracked frame or damage to said frame), little bit of cosmetic damage... Otherwise, TU250X's are averaging around close to 4k in Victoria (I reckon it is down to the "summer tax..." cunts just want to ride during summer and sell their bikes for cheap during winter because they are too pussy to ride in the wet and cold...) To add, I really wouldn't mind a TU250X...If you have 3k why not go for a TU250X? It just seems like a significant risk for a bucket that you'd need to put quite a bit of cash into.
E46s getting older now and nice examples are getting rare. The E92 series seems prime for the used buy at present. Gotta say, why 325i at all? Needs more engineWhich gen for the 325i?
I'm a huge fan of the 330ci but the reality is it's a bit older now and at least my cousin's one had a few electrical issues after a while. It has aged well in looks but it's not so fresh now that it's a bit more common.
