Upping your own collection

You know you've done it...

You know of a make/model bike that's nicer than one you have. You sell yours, and immediately go score the nicer one you've silently wanted.

Re: Upping your own collection

Not me. I'll take the cheap junk and make my own

pretty much same boat.. didnt really know anything about mopeds other than puch and tomos were brands with available parts. Ended up with a 5starTE with the v1L motor (first one i bought that i got running). Its still my daily rider and i havent really owned or ridden a bike that ive enjoyed more than it. Have ridden some friends tuned up hobbits and mobys that were close tho.. and ive never ridden or worked on a derbi.

Oh wait.. there is declan in st. louis that has a bike im in love with... but its pretty much the same thing as my genny, but with the pryor trike conversion

Not a moped, but I recently upgraded my motorcycle trailer. I sold my homemade 3-rail trailer and bought a 2-rail Kendon stand-up motorcycle trailer.

I've never sold any of my peds. I constantly buy shit projects and slowly get them going. the best times are when i get one going before my curent runner(s) die and become shit projects themselfs.

Re: Upping your own collection

To trade up would require being able to find bikes around here and that doesn't happen. Right now I'm just happy to keep what I have going.

Re: Upping your own collection

No not minty! Inside joke.

Re: Upping your own collection

This DID backfire on me once. I sold a Puch Allstate Sabre and the idiot that was selling me his nicer one failed to produce.

I lost.

I have managed to trade up a good number of times. I'm pretty happy with the stable I have now, although I really need to sell some. 11 is too many.

Re: Upping your own collection

Get two more ya need a bakers dozen

Re: Upping your own collection

I cycle through peds fairly often. Keep checking out new models/motors.... and not getting too attached.

I have been happy playing with a lot of weird non US import bikes as result.
