Looking for a bike


So I’ve started the look for my first (learner legal) bike. I’m quite tall so I’m looking for something like a Honda XR 125. I’ve found the following that I was considering looking at ASAP, can anyone let me know if they see anything dodgy, or anything important that is not mentioned:


  1. http://www.gumtree.com/london/05/28186705.html (update: sold)
  2. http://www.gumtree.com/london/95/28721195.html (update: too expensive and non neg.)
  3. http://www.gumtree.com/london/14/27079014.html (update: in bloody Scotland! :wink: )

4. http://www.gumtree.com/london/26/28717126.html

If anyone knows any other good XRs (or anything suitable for a tall rider) I’d love to hear it.
UPDATE: so some of those private ones are already sold, however I have found some more on ebay that I would like to go check out soon, although they are about 30 - 40 miles out of london.


Not checked your links, so excuse me if you’ve looked at one of these, but how about a Honda Varadero 125
