Buying a motorcycle in Phnom Penh

Post by Daum Penh Stalker » Tue Jan 22, 2019 6:01 pm

This does not appear to be an easy thing to do. Going to the Cambodian bike shops seems like a great way to get ripped off. What's the best way to buy a motorcycle in Phnom Penh and not get ripped off? Maybe buy from a foreigner? But where?

Check out the Facebook group "Slavery Apologists in Cambodia Buy & Sell".
The American Civil War wasn't about slavery. But thanks for your generalization. Can we chat about this later? After I buy a bike.

Nah, I'm not helping any bigots. Hang yourself.
Rather rare being a bigot and calling someone a bigot.

I hope that every Yank with a red neck avatar and red neck attitude, get ripped off! :beer3:
There are people who cannot imagine that there are other ways of life than their own life. :facepalm:

did you check the prices of new bikes at the dealer? Those prices will give you kind of guideline, but esp. Honda bikes keep their value for a very long time.

What bike are you looking for and do you want new or used? New, big capacity motorbikes are a lot more expensive here than western markets
