    Hi Guys

    I need a really cheap, cheap big bike to get around on. It must be road worthy, reasonable condition and not a dream or wave or the like.

    I'm only looking to spend in the region of 20/30,000 Baht. I know it's not much but maybe you have an old but serviceable sit up and beg that will do the trick as long as its reliable etc. I will consider most things eg: Street, Motard, Enduro. I'm not interested in racing machines or chopper type stuff. Good example would be Honda CB type bikes or anyhting motard or enduro as long as road legal.

    What have you guys got that may be cluttering your garages that may be of use to me?

    Hi Rob

    I thought it was too good to be true!

    The price has one to many zero's for me. Unless you are feeling very charitable and want to see a fellow biker with a big grin on his face! ha ha ha

    I really am looking at a cheap, cheap, run around but thank you for the reply

    regards

    Stoni

    You could probably get a used Honda CBR150, a used Honda Phantom, or a used Kawasaki Boss. Not exactly big bikes but they aren't like Waves and Dreams either.:D

    Hi

    I'm sure you can find something. A couple of years back I sold a Suzuki Bandit 400 for 50 something thousand, with green book, so definitely not impossible.

    Check out mocyc.com, lot of bikes there.

    An older carburretor bike will cost a lot of money for fuel.
    Get something new with fuel injection.

    Stoni1,

    KZ25 is selling a low mileage CBR150 and is asking 50,000 baht for it -- why not PM him ?

    I have a 2006 BMW I am selling for 25 baht.But I feel it's 115 BHP and speed may take you to an early grave, so I will take it off the market.

    Thank guys for all your comments I have now purchased a new Lifan ( I know before you all shout at me) but I needed a bike quickly. I will post a thread under Lifan to keep you all up to date with my experiences.
