Hello, I am looking for a big(gish) bike. I am 182cm and weigh 115 kilos. I would love to buy a new bike but the prices are out of my range at this time. I'm looking to spend around 60,000 baht for a second hand bike. I like the idea of a cafe racer style bike (Kawasaki Estrella) or a Bobber (out of a Honda Steed) but it seem that most of these bike are invoice only bikes. I would like to be legal just in case and would hate to have my bike taken away. Can anyone recommend a good bike shop where I could find a legal second hand bike. I would like a 250cc to 400cc bike. My primary use for the bike would be weekend cruises around Thailand.

For the Bobber style you can take a look at the Lifan LF250-B, Keeway Cruiser 250, or the Keeway Superlight 200. If you really want a classic looking Café racer style bike you probably need to put some elbow crease into it, as currently no manufacturers sell a Café racer style bike for around 60,000 THB.
With secondhand motorcycles for around 60,000 THB you need to have a good amount of luck, some are best described as an overly ripe lemon and some are pretty good purchases.... But you need luck...
