Parts prices

Posted: October 2, 2008 in Uncategorized

I was just having some random thoughts about parts prices.

When you think that parts for these old British bikes are steep, try pricing some new parts for your Honda motorcycle!

We sell new replacement mufflers for about $100 a pair. If you want to throw caution to the wind, you can get them in stainless for about $450. Price a set of mufflers for a modern bike and I know you can’t get a new set for $100. Used maybe….. but new, I don’t think so. How about an ignition switch? A complete Lucas switch for a Norton comes in at less than $100. Modern bike….big bucks!

So I guess the tack here is that it’s all relative. Not cheap maybe, but nevertheless relative.
