Bike o' Nomics

Post by Rooster on Tue Jul 08, 2014 10:23 pm

Ok, so, heres fuel for the fire :-) Let the debate rage on...

250 KTM Excw +- 80000

Expected re-sale value after 2 years 50000

Loss 30000



Or second hand bike over 300 hrs over 5 yrs old 20 000. hmmm Does this make sense?

Heres a list of stuff you are very very likely to have to do in the first 100 Hours of riding



Tires + Mousses (Tubes will cost the same believe me) 5000
Chain + sprock 2000
Piston + ring 2500
Fork Overhaul 1000
Shock Overhaul 1500
Suspension linkage re furbish 750
Headstock overhaul 500
Cable replacements 400
New Plastics 1500
Wheel Bearings + spoke alignment 1200

16350

=

Unknown broken Stuff allowance (Splines, Missing bolts, Rad hoses, Clucthes, leaking hydaulics, frame cracks)

3000

Wors case scenario engine rebuild (Exluded from math) 6000

Extra risk easily 9000.

Re Sale after 2 years 15000

Loss 24350 - minimum.... vs 30000????

NOW factor in lost riding time, cost of sourcing, getting, driving to spares places, personal time lost, frustration, getting stuck in the bush etc etc....

Are we freaking nuts????? Buy new I say. Or at least as close as possible.

Take the 20K or whatever as a deposit, and pay 1500 rand per month finance - It will work out cheaper per month plus your costs are predictable.

Putting it this way makes sense... but remember we did not buy the bikes cause they where cheap only ..we bought them cause we could not ride... thus the bike was going to go thru hell in the first few month... rather do this to a 20k bike than a 90k one
