View Full Version : Silly question you might have heard before.

Do you think it's possible to go to the part's counter of your local bike shop that you normaly get part's from and order every single nut, bolt, washer, frame, rim, fork, etc... until you have a complete bike, brand new?! I've never tried, but maybe someone has. I may try when I go back home.

I've thought of this, but somethings are discontiuned. I think a 350x frame alone is around $1000 just for a bare frame, that is if its not discontinued. The rebuild would get spendy very fast.

To some people it would be worth it though. Just think, a trike that nobody has ever sat on or rode but you.

ATC crazy

That would get expensive very fast. Although it would be just like finding a 250R/350X in its origonal crate :rolleyes: Give it a try

No its not at all possible. Most ATC Parts are discontinued but a few things and a things like bolts/nuts/washers. I dont know about Yamaha or Kawi, but ATC crap is exxxxxpensive.

Let me let you in on something, ANYTHING that was designed and built in Japan, and it's parts supply is from Japan=expensive as hell. No 2 buts about it, those are the facts. From the cars, to bikes, to trucks, parts from the manufacture are just outrageous. If the vehicle is popular, prices come down a lot, and if there is a strong aftermarket they come down a lot. Atc's aren't very popular...

Thanks for the feedback. I was just kinda curious. I imagine if it was possible your frame # and engine # wouldn't match anyway. Come to think of it, I've never looked to see if they match anyway!

There is a reason ATVs bring more money parted out than in one piece. the cost of a new Yamaha Warrior over the parts counter would be around $20,000.
