Trustworthy cheapo advice...

Recommended Posts


I'm hoping you can help me. I'm looking for my first motorbike for short commutes around Bristol and the odd mendips country blast in the sun. I'd like a scrambler type bike, but with £1000 tops, preferably half of that if possible... I'm after any recommendations of what to look out for on ebay. To compound the problem I know nothing about bikes or mechanics, so pointers, or bulletproof bikes preferable!!

Having had a read about I'd love a DRZ400SM or a KLR650 or a custom SR400, but all are out of my league, so any other suggestions welcome!

Pop into newbies and introduce yourself. We like people who say hello :wink:

And you want

Honda CB500

Honda XR - Any size above 250cc

Suzuki GS500

Kawasaki GPZ500

Kawasaki KLE500

Honda Transalp - Old version

Any of these I've seen around the £500 mark.

I just bought a running GPZ500 for £200 and even a FZR600 that just needs a gasket change for £600 :thumb:
