Default Wanted: RD350 in Bangalore

Guys, Looking for this on behalf of a friend. What would be the price of a good RD350 (original parts etc.) in bangalore? Anyone know of any good mech.s that would have bikes to sell?

Cheers,
Ajit

People in bangalore dont think before telling the price...

i had seen 2 bike about 2-3 months back in good condition, but the guy was asking 75K...

that bike is still one sale... no one pay that much...

usually max should be 50-55K anything more than that would be Royalty you pay.
(This prices are for bangalore)

I agree with Zulfikar, RD350 prices are much higher today. I bought a RD350(HT) 3 months ago in original condition for 67K. All the good/original bikes that I saw were above 70K. Some were even quoting more than a lac but I just didn't feel they were worth that much. Even 5 years ago when I sold my previous RD, the price for a good bike was more than 50K.




@ajitkommini : Shall let you know

infact, if u have the time and patience ( which you shud have if u intend to own an RD!!!), you should buy a beaten down bike at a throw away price and then work on it with a good mechanic. it would still be cheaper than these fancy prices being quoted

and u get to decide what quality parts go into it

Agreed! although it isnt for me personally but for a friend of mine. The guy is a pretty seasoned restorer of bikes, so I'm pretty sure he has the patience and probably the time too

i personally think that you will get a decent rd at around 20-25, put in antoher 25k worth of goodies and you have a ROCKSTAR on your hand. dont forget the monthly 4 k maintainance you will spend on the bike.

i dont think there will be a 4K maintainance.
you can expect 1500-2000 per month...
if you want the ike to be in best condition...

Yes that sounds reasonable. It's not going to be ridden every single day anyway.
