I've been toying with the idea of buying an old Triumph or Honda or something and rebuilding it as a desert sled. But since I have almost no experience with bike mechanics, I'd appreciate some advice from the group. Where do people get old Triumphs, etc? Is there a good resource out there that usually has good deals, or does it come down to being vigilant and scouring everywhere (eBay, Craigslist, etc)? I'm seeing lots of old Triumphs in the $5k+ range (in decent condition), but I'm more thinking sub-$2k so that I can spend $$$ on parts and stuff. Realistic? Would Honda be a better option? Or even (gasp) another BMW? No real tools to speak of and, while I am handy with housing electrical/plumbing/etc (as mentioned above), I'm no mechanic. Piston & Chain looks like an interesting option, however. Thoughts? My hope is that by the end I'll have an awesome second bike and will have learned enough about moto mechanics to do more on my 1200GS than just add skid plates/crash bars/HIDs/etc. Many thanks in advance.
