    I am looking for a Harley Davidson bike (my first).

    I am living in Khon Kaen and have tried the Harley Davidson Silver Star bike shop but it doesn't look like they actually have any bike that I like. Every time they call me to say they have something but when i want to buy it there is some excuse that the bike is broken or not available. They are just 'in between' persons so I am looking for someone or a shop that is really owning the bike so I can buy it directly.

    I prefer a V-Rod Muscle (in black) or a Night Rod Special. Other offers will be considered though. Please post here or pm me if you have an offer. I am willing to travel for it, but not as far as Phuket or Pattaya. I prefer a newer bike.

    Thanks for the reply Ian. Unfortunately the shop you mention in Khon Kaen hasn't been able to offer me a bike. They are only talking until now and not being able to deliver the bike when they offer it.

    May be wait a little bit for Ian to sell his Harley which has yet to be delivered. I know he really wants a Triumph Scrambler.

    The Silver Star shop in Khon Kaen has only been open a short time. They can order any new Harley models via the Bangkok dealership and probably give you a reasonable discount. They bikes they have in the shop are mainly second hand bikes they are selling on behalf of current owners. They just do not have the capital outlay to fill the shop with new or second hand bikes that may be very slow to sell, especially as most people, such as yourself are very particular about what they are looking for. I am sure if they hear of something that meets your requirements, they will give you a call.

    I have tried already. Even paid the down payment of a bike I had only seen on photos. The bike didn't arrive in Khon Kaen and I got my money back. They are very reasonable people but I have lost confidence that they can do what they say.

    I might import one from the USA if it is that difficult to get one in Thailand...

    Hi Friends,

    And a special thanks to "Not on a Yamaha" for his link http://hd-playground.com/smf/index.p...99a5&board=3.0, I went on it and discovered a wide choice of wonderfull bikes that I never imagine I could find in LOS, very attractive prices but THE big problem is that most of the bikes are direct import without legal paper to ride in Thailand (no Green Book).

    Some bikes are private own ones some bikes are from garages where we can find as well a very large choice of other second hand and brand new bikes but again with no documents other than an invoice.

    Personnally, I wonder about the risk for us -Foreigners- to ride on such bike and to be controled by MIB, not sure of the result and prefer and advise not to risk.

    This web site being in Thai (even with a foreigner section) and not understanding Thai writing, I will keep a conditional form to express on the issue but I think that the one who wants to buy such bikes and be quite, will have to pay taxes and Green Book paper work that could be a significative amount on top of the price.

    Thus this makes the price less attractive; at least for us.

    However I discover as well some bikes plated and this might be a chance, depending on the kind of Greeen Book it is plated with ...Does some "old foxes" from the forum would have some opinion on that ?
