Motorcycles: Buying Used

What to look for when you've found that perfect bike

Attention, bargain hunters: due to the current bad economy, the used motorcycle market is ripe with fantastic deals. So don't overlook your local used bike shop — or online sites such as Cycle Trader, Craigslist, or eBay — when searching for your dream bike. We found a gorgeous 2002 custom Softail (Harley’s most popular cruiser) with over $20,000 in accessory upgrades, at Chopper Exchange for just $8,250.

And when you do find the ultimate dream ride, here are some things to look for before making your purchase.
