One of the absolute best uses of a salvage auction is as a source for parts. Aftermarket or OEM parts are cost-prohibitive; sometimes using them to make significant repairs on a motorcycle or scooter can cost more than replacing it with a running vehicle of the same model and year. To save customers and garages money, many people look to salvage parts for repairing needs. Bikes that are largely intact can be located fairly easily and used to make major repairs or replacements.
However, once the repairs are made there are still many usable parts left on the donor vehicle. Selling these parts online or to local shops can be an efficient and nearly effortless way to generate extra income.
Foraging for Parts
Looking for Something Special
Parts like the ones mentioned above can also be identified fairly easily in the majority of online auction photos. This lessens the risk of buying a motorbike without a specific purpose in mind and coming up nil in terms of usable parts.
Just be sure that before the vehicle is operated on a public road that the title has been filed for. Most likely, the vehicle will be treated as salvage and require a mandatory safety inspection. In some states, though, scooters under 50cc don’t require registration.
