Some of the PROJECT BIKES we sell can be ridden home and worked on at a new owner’s leisure. Others, like THIS one, are what we might call a “FULL” PROJECT BIKE. This bike does not run or start. Obviously, it is not available for test rides. We know almost nothing about its history, nor exactly what would be involved to bring it back to running condition. Perhaps it would be good parts bike, or a starting platform for a custom project, or whatever your imagination can think of. But because it’s a PROJECT BIKE, it is VALUE priced according to its condition — and intended to be an opportunity for an enterprising, mechanically inclined buyer to not only SAVE, but enjoy a sense of accomplishment, too, when the project is completed.
As with all PROJECT BIKES we want buyers to know as much as possible about the bike before making a purchase. We’ve nothing to hide and our only goal is that the new owner for each and every PROJECT BIKE feels they paid fairly and got a good, if not great value in the deal. We encourage people to call, schedule a time to meet with one of our sales advisors and inspect each machine in person so they fully understand all the positives as well as the potential downsides involved in the refurbishing process. We’re proud to have sold well over a hundred PROJECT BIKES since beginning the program some years ago. Our aim with these bikes — indeed, with all the bikes we sell — is exceptional customer satisfaction. By that measure, our PROJECT BIKES have proven to be an overwhelming success. We’ve even taken a few of them back in trade as good used bikes after their owners finished doing all the work and then enjoyed riding the bikes for a number of years.
