Bike appraisal
« on: October 08, 2018, 01:21:37 AM »

Finally selling my Hyosung, As I have awful luck with them, The current engine has 6000 odd miles under her, Engine is running smooth, After market exhaust of which I did and im very confident in, A custom yellow paint job done by me. With no orange peel and lacquered (done with compressor not rattle can) but alas shes from 2009 how much you guys reckon I should put her up for. She has v5 keys and MOT
But seriously, **** me the hyo gt125r is the best looking 125 money can buy

Personally I wouldnt pay a penny over 600 for it (if that).

Here's why: Non Standard
Paint Job
Indicators
Levers (odd at that too)
Screen
Exhaust
Rear sets (black)
Engine (as I get the impression its been swapped)
Rim tape

Grab rail missing
Wing mirror missing
Tank stickers missing (after paint job i assume)
Chain guard missing

I appreciate its probably worth more but in the eyes of a buyer youve customised the bike to yourself, not for resale. Unless you had all the parts to put it back standard. Even after all that, I'd want to inspect the paint job on bike and accessories then see disc and pad condition and ride the thing. I'd have those lists above to fix therefore the offer would be low.

As a side note, I'd come here and check your post history to see what issues you had with the bike  ;D

Looks like it's been dropped on the LHS hence the mirror missing and odd lever (mirror and lever are the first things to snap after a drop).
Could be wrong mind  ::)
PS I would put standard levers back on , 2 mirrors and refit the grab rails as Joss already suggested .Stickers seem odd as well and I would have left them off .
Bike does look good though and somebody who knows zip about Hyosung bikes will probably give you more  .

I appreciate the feedback boys

Joss in regards to indicators, They are ordered and on the way.
The chain guard is now on :)

I will be posting it on ebay/gumtree. I feel like out of this forum very few 17-year-olds, Who have just passed there CBT will have ever heard of hyosung. I know I had not at that age. You got to remember at that age they want the bike to look as flashy as possible, and to be as big as possible so they can look as cool as possible at College ;)

Not hoping to sell it to anyone who knows diddly squat about bikes. You guys get where Im coming from ?

Excellent attitude towards it, it will certainly increase the value.

Add fuel sender to the list... Just kidding  ;D. Good luck with the sale Stag.

Not all things but what I do know comes from working on them and building them.

Just try to go back stock and have all your documentation ready and up to date. If something has been changed I like to see receipts to back it up. You have not mentioned service history so that would help, even if you serviced yourself, provide the reciepts in your documentation.

I beg to differ a little there, my nephew, wants only a scooter now that he is 17, and, my daughter, who is 16 & taking her cbt, has chosen a Mash 50 Roadstar, as here, choice, with an eye on a Keeway Superlight once she's 17, and my other nephew was ecstatic with his Lexmoto Arrow, when he got that !! I would say, nakeds are now more appealing than fully faired 125's

I see stuff like this going for 895ono and I live somewhere where 125ers are expensive.
