Where to buy accident damaged bikes?
« on: October 29, 2019, 10:22:27 am »
Hi Dogs

Where does one buy accident damaged bikes? Sort of like SMD for cars, but for bikes. Wholesale to the public.

But i'm not talking the likes of bike hospital or acme salvage. They will add their hefty profits.

SMS doen bikes ook maar baie min.

Bike breakers op die ou Warmbad pad/Lavender road, maar wees versigtig, hulle is ook maar skelm.

By the way, what type of bike are you looking for? There is a guy just off from Van Der Hoff Road in Pta who also sells accident damaged bikes for cheap.

For those new to online auctions, here's a few tips.

- Browse around action in advance
- Note what you'd like to have and for what price (your price!), and go have a look if feasible
- Register and Pay in time (payment = refundable)
- Do NOT/NEVER place a bid in advance (zero reason why one should want to do this!)
- Make a bid at the very last moment... or, if you want to first bid a bit lower than your price then do this as late as possible just leaving enough time to make a better bid if someone else bids higher
- This is a game against the clock and against an unknown unseen number of others, better give yourself time to learn the habits

Use it, don't... ;)

All the bikes I have bought were from SMD.

I saw a 2015 bmw that a guy bought for 65k.  Code 3 . By the time it was fixed it cost 140k .  Do your homework beforehand or its gonna hurt . That bike is only worth 90k on a good day . Bike spares are very expensive.

Thanks vir al die inputs.

Sien SMD is maar lekker skelm, vir elke 10k spend, gaan jy 4.4k betaal in hidden costs!
