Default So best place to sell a trike then?

After the Oz trip, I really need to sell mine now - only been back just over a week and getting a little sick of baked beans already ...

eBay? Not sold owt on there, any advice?
Anywhere else?

Ta in advance.

price it reasonably? dunno what your asking, but maybe its over priced if it hasnt sold before?

ebay is full of idiots, but it is also the largest selling place, maximum exposure.

set a realistic reserve, and see what happens, but be prepared for numptie questions

I find that taking time to put just about as much info into the listing as possible makes it easier.

If it's still 8500 i'll be honest with you and say it's a couple of grand too expensive for me especially if it's still got daytime only mot ?
I can appreciate the work thats gone into it but think 8500 is alot more than people tend to spend on a trike unless they are fairly dedicated to the trike cause
People tend to buy a cheap trike to learn the skills required to ride,drive,steer a trike first then trade up later or decide they hate trikes and go back to bikes either way you're screwed
Give us your best sales pitch

8500 flippin eck

yeah its well built, well i like the back end, but I would have to agree I think, its just not up in that sort of money territory

however with summer supposedly making an appearance this year, maybe you might get lucky?

if I do finish mine, will be with just a black paint job, but Im not expecting much more than maybe 2k for mine, perhaps ask 3k ono

but as with anything in the custom world, its worth whatever someone will pay

I just think that for that sort of money people will go for the shiney fancy paint trikes that are about for that sort of cash

Default Ebay

I've sold a few bikes and stuff using the classified ad format. 12 and runs for a month!
Your mate bought my YZF750 after an ad on here. And the last vehicle I sold was my van, on facebook!

Cheers, Mick.

Well don't keep us in suspense How much is it now ?
And to be a bit more helpful, you could stick it on gumtree but i think you will always struggle to advertise it as its a bit of a niche market but at least your in the right job to help abit

Being new on here I haven't seen the trike, got any photo's & price.
If it only has a day time MOT, is it to much hassle to wire up lights?
I'll be looking for one soon, but it will be my only means of transport so will need lights. (If my leg doesn't improve I might need forwards aswell).

its the one that was featured as a build in 100% magazine, gpz900 motor, IRS stainless back end by Paul, PHW in Essex.

class build, in my opinion it deserves a better front end and paint job.

The 8500 price for me is not adequate. You should not try to sell there. Nobody will buy it, cause is a bit too expensive. Ebay is for cheap products.
