What happened to the bargains predicted?
« on: June 25, 2020, 01:51:46 pm »
With a few exceptions it seems the expected drop in 2nd hand bike prices did not materialise.

Just as expensive as ever - totally Covid resistand it seems.

Prices asked havent gone down much but I doubt many move at those prices and the economic kak is still on the way

Well, some people still have their "toys" under finance, and you can't sell for less than that or you'll get screwed yourself.
Also, the market here is more resistant as I suspect a lot of members are higher income with bigger savings pools.

Actually think people that are hard up for $$$ try to get top dollar - so prices have been insane.

Also coming out of lockdown, people want some freedom and wants to enjoy life. What better way than a bike. I see many people that are buying now so the demand and supply maybe still in balance?

It is still a waiting game.
I sit on some cash from my previous bike sale but do not see any real bargains to spend the money on.
Other issue is freedom of movement to go view bikes in other provinces.

I've been seeing quite a few vehicles, mostly toys, advertised due to people suddenly needing money to survive. Same prices roughly as before lockdown, but as said above, early days. The worst economic shit storm is still building.

The sh@t is still to hit the fan, me thinks and then the bargains will come.

What you ask and what you actually get, or take, in the end, may differ substantially.
