    Default Nostalgic Biker's Dilemma: Bobby Rajdoot GTS. To Buy or Not To Buy?

    Dear all,

    There are times when the head and logic dictates things and there are times when heart and emotions take over. I am in one such dilemma. I have never ridden a RD bobby before, but only have experience with Rajdoot 175 3 gear one. There is this fellow biker from my hometown who has a Bobby in bits and pieces. My heart says go for it, but the head says...Final cost kitna hoga...log kya kahengey( I am over six feet tall and a hefty one Hundred ten plus kilos so you can picture that )

    The parts available are

    The things missing are (not limited to, as i did not checkin person)

    2) what would be the cost of missing spares alone
    3) Approx total restoration cost including painting and assembly - best of man and material.
    4) Is there a way to get this registered after restoration - what would it cost

    ##Considering the above, what would be reasonable price to purchase the existing bits from him
