LOCKDOWN PROJECT

APRILIA RS 125

Have you ever taken a moment to reminisce about your first bike? The bike that started it all? If you do, like me you'll probably remember how much fun it was, the shoddy repairs you made on a show string 17 year old's budget. 

Well having been on lock-down for just two weeks I started to romanticise about my first bike a 1999 Aprilia RS 125 and began doing some research into how much they now cost. To my surprise a relatively high mileage bike in poor condition is still selling for £1200 plus, it seems they're becoming more desirable. My alternative was the popular Cagiva Mito famous for its similarities to the iconic Ducati 916 though similar spec bikes are still selling for over £2000!

After many hours searching online I manage to haggle a deal for a bike and delivery totalling £1200, which seems like a bargain. The bike is alleged to have been rebuilt and partially restored, though there's no way of telling until it arrives that afternoon.
