One of the first things you will need to do is find a motorcycle to restore. There are many places that you can go to get an older one but the best priced is going to be the junk yard. You will need to have an idea of what kind of motorcycle you are planning on restoring in the first place. This will help you find the one that you need when you get to the junk yard that you are going to.
Once you have found the kind of motorcycle that you want to restore, you may want to think about checking on the cost of the motorcycle parts that you will need with it. That will help you to make a budget and plan your build better. You may find that the costs of restoring an older model will be much more then buying one are a motorcycle shop.
If price is not a concern, you will be able to get all of your motorcycle parts in the beginning and not have to worry about the costs as you are going though your build. You also may decide that you are going to get a really rare bike for your restoring project, like an older Harley Davidson. These are almost always hard to find and very expensive but it will be well worth it in the long run for you and anyone that wants to ride with you.
There are a few things that you should think about when you are planning your old bike resto. You need to make sure that the motorcycle parts that you can get, will work on the bike that you pick to work with. If they don't have the right parts, then there is no real point in even starting the project in the first place. Take some time to research what you are planning to do so that you are set when you start and not running around trying to figure out what you are going to do with your bike and the parts that you may have already got.
