Advice on selling

#1 Post by SayingGoodbye » Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:22 am

good morning :)

straight to the point,
I have a m reg honda cg 125. it doesn't run and with the state of it I can't afford to put any more money into it. it's had a long run, 8 previous owners, fails me constantly and 2 years ago was stolen and painted Matt black.
is there people out there who would buy it to restore and fix it? if so, where do I find these people ?
if not, am I better selling it for parts ?
hope you can help!

Hello and welcome.

Autotrader, Pistonheads, Ebay, all have bike sections.

Selling for parts is a long game but ultimately more profitable.

There was an ad in my local co op for people wanting old bike resto projects or scrap bikes so might be worth looking in the local magazines most villages / towns have
