Some more trials bike mathematical considerations on a Sunday night:
The madness of Ontario used off-road bike prices continues. Here’s a 20 year old bike that needs a lot of work:
2001 gasgas TXT 200 trials bike in good shape, runs good , needs fork seals and brake work.
So, you drop over three grand on it and then have to buy parts and rebuild the suspension and brakes. You’re probably over four grand before you turn a wheel on this old, worn out thing.
Integrated electric start
Electronic fuel injection
Butter smooth hydraulic clutch
Ultra-progressive hydraulic brakes
Lightweight billet aluminum swing arm
Adjustable billet aluminum brake pedal
Billet aluminum triple clamps
High-quality flexible plastics
Transparent fuel tank means no more guessing
All chassis fasteners are high-grade stainless steel
Well protected exhaust system means no costly replacements
$3495 plus PDI/shipping/taxes
So, my option is to drop four grand on a 20 year old, broken bike, or spend the same amount on a brand new machine? Someone’s going to say, “yeah, but that’s a Chinese bike.” Where do you think all the parts on the GasGas were made? Bet it wasn’t Spain.
