Buying a used motorcycle in today's market is a pretty tough thing
to do. The hundreds of thousands of new bikes that were sold in
in the early 1980's are nowhere to be found. They're still out there,
but tucked away in garages and sheds, collecting dust. Because the
Kansas area isn't suitable for year-round riding, having the desire
to sell and nice enough weather to do so can be a fickle thing.
What this means for a prospective buyer is that patience and is
required. It is doubtful that a good deal on a used motorcycle will
fall into your lap. Keeping a watchful eye on the classifieds in
not only our local paper, but also both the Kansas City and Topeka
papers increases your selection numbers. Also The Trading Post,
a weekly paper, can be a good source for cheaper, older bikes. Your
best chance for success is to make sure time is on your side. Try
not to rush the purchase process. Give yourself a chance to do some
research on the bike you are thinking of buying.
Although we do not buy or sell motorcycles, our knowledge of good
and bad brands, models, and years, is free for the asking. We want
you to be happy with your purchase. Is it is a lot more fun for
us to see you spend your hard earned money on routine maintenance
and worth while accessories then unexpected repairs to a type of
the bike prone to problems.
When you find a bike that catches your eye, either bring it by
or arrange to have it brought by. I'll be glad to take a few minutes
to look it over. Between that, and possibly a quick ride down the
street, I can give to you pretty much everything that you need to
know to make a smart purchase decision. Free, quick, and honest.
