rims or bike

Im in debate i know rims would look kick ass but i really want a bike too. I am looking to spend about 1500 dollars on either. My friend has his own bike shop and race team and could get me a pretty good deal and would help me mod and tune it. What should I do?

Uhh, well even though your friend has a shop I dont think you are gonna find a decent bike for 1500. Unless it's a salvage or something. If you don't have a huge budget, Id go with the rims b/c the bike is gonna cost you extra insurance, maitenance...

you can get a ninja 600 (like a real early 90's) for like a grand insurance well for my 94 600 its 500 a year with progressive

all i'll say is if you look hard enoguh you can find cheap bikes that rn;t salvaged.. and insurance isn't bad and being able to out accelerate most everything on the street is a rush


hey thats a 20 minute phone call

Yeah true that, I didn't know how "new" of a bike he wanted.

I spent $400 on my first bike, it wasn't pretty but it sure ran awesome; never put anything in it but gas.
