Calling All Christchurch Motorcyclists

Postby dicks-naughty-account on Mon 28/Sep/09 4:08pm

Hello winrars

I am currently in the midst of purchasing a 1986 Honda CBR400 Aero (seen below) but during the time i wish to test ride it, i will be visiting friends and family in dunedin. i am asking here, if anybody with any experience in motorcycles (even better, road bikes) can actually check it out for me, just check it over and take it for a spin really. if anyone here is willing, that would be absolutely splendid. i can pay the rider some petrol money to get where ever it is (Avonside/dale or something like that) thanks :)

actually its not an auction. at the moment its completely private. he contacted me the minute i sold my fizz asking to do a swap+cash, but i had to decline since i'd just handed over the keys. he says he's busy this weekend until 7pm each night, but i don't know about any times after this weekend. basically, i'm happy to do what ever you're able to, since you're the one helping out.

that cbr looks nice, but is pushing beyond my price bracket. my back up is your VFR, but i will need to get my a into g and come check it out first.

bring spanners.

One night next week maybe? I have a checklist of stuff I look at when looking at a secondhand bike. be aware I am not a mechanic though, and am not familiar with the make/model of bike. I can give you an unbiased opinion of what it looks like, what the "wear part" conditions are and how it rides. But stuff like compression or leakdown testing is beyond my ken.

or my barbie. whatever.

I will PM you my contact details, get the dude to ring me. :)

Sold! How about getting the beer goggles on before looking at the bike.
