How to get the most from selling your motorcycle - 4

People pretend they're really radical and live close to the edge. But in reality, there's a definite tendency towards the safe and conservative. As an example, plain black or white helmets are almost always the top sellers in a firm's range, with the wild primary-colour graphics often left on the shelf.

So when selling your bike, clean and standard will sell best. Take off any stickers, worn tank pads or old rim tape you might have added. Swap out any coloured anodised bolts for plains ones and after-market parts for orginal where practical.
