Where to sell if Ebay fails


Recommended Posts

Guys,

My track riding days are over and I've decided to sell my leathers.

I've put them on Ebay a couple of times and not a sniff.

I don't think it's the asking price (£99 - cost me £960 :shock: )

So, where next?

I could go to my local track and hawk them around I suppose, but the thought of selling electronically from the comfort of my own armchair is far more appealling :coffee:

Any ideas anyone?

Doesn't MCN Mart have a clothing section? Used to when I was a regular reader. That's gone online now so maybe the ads have too?

Are you keeping a 2 wheel toy for the road Graham? Mine's been sorn'd for 2 years now. A bit daft keeping it really if I'm not riding, but not yet prepared to no longer be a biker. Still hope to recommission it and get out again when /if we ever get the major projects finished at this house.

Mike,

Checked out MCN online and the only ads they appear to accept are those relating to bikes themselves.

I've not ridden on the road now for over 15 years so I think I'm now officially an ex-biker :scooter:

Yes! Yes! I feel the healing spirit within me. I am one with the machine again. The skin of the calf has lifted my heart to new born redemption! I sing the praises of The Bikemeister to the heavens above, and I once more dwell in the swing-arms of the Softtail gods as I convert my rear tyre to gumball consistency. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

in 'continental' Europe you would use www.mobile.de or autoscout24.de for cars & bikes and anything related (like clothings & spare parts) ..

worth a try ?

I sent some unwanted junk to my local Action house, on average I got about 4 times more than I thought it was worth. :animier:

For that kind of money why not keep them as a nice reminder of your younger days?
