i dont think a 01 fiero is a good bike to buy for 25k range. one of my college friend bought a fiero for 15k.that is the price range for the fiero.if you really want to get one ask for this price range.unicorn should be around 25 to 30k. i am talking about the older one without self start.

Since the bike is now 7.5 years old, I got the following done:
Front and rear tyre chnged:
Front: 2.75 x 18 (same as original size, just changed to Ceat)
Rear: 100/90 x 18 (original was 3.00 x18, the new make is Ceat)
Rear suspention: entirely replaced
Front Suspension: Oil replaced, seals replaced (wanted to replace springs but were not available)
Spark plug replaced
Accelrator and clutch cable replaced
Bike is running very very smoothly now and pick-up has improved to original level.
Ride has become much more comfortable and I am now not as edgy to take the potholes as I was for last 2 or 3 years.
With largeer tyre (with supposedly better trade pattern), handling has improved just a little bit - skidding problem has reduced considerably (but bike still skids on occassions - wet roads, gravel etc but there is benefit of doubt as many bikes may skid under these circumstances...)
Total cos of service: Rs. 2800
Total cost of tyres: Rs. 2100
Note: In order to eliminate skidding completely, I guess, the workmanship must be top class - they should align and/or balance the wheels and suspensions carefully (my guess) and the local TVS dealer (and his workshop guys) as completely disinterested in the business
