Wanted honda cbr125

Hi guys I'm all new to this forum (first time I've joined a forum). I've just passed my CBT and I'm looking to buy my first ever bike (Honda 125cbr). My budget is around £800-£900. Does anyone have or they know someone who's selling one. Pls help need one for commuting to and from work 

Thanks

You`ll be lucky to get one at that price,it`ll be about £1100/£1200 for a decent one.

Also have considered insurance costs?

Teenager! Lol.. I'm 28 yrs old( I no left it bit too late but hey). That was the first thing I checked up on, cheaper Than running a car, I've found one cbr 125 for £900 in Nottingham, the guy said its got previous mot but he hasn't got no service history ( said he serviced himself). Hasn't dropped it or no scuff on bike, he's customised it, changing the panels from black to white. Looks and sounds good but have to see it to believe it, any tips when viewing the bike?

Make sure the guy who`s selling the bike owns it,ask him if it`s been a write off as in cat c/d.

Visually check for leaks,

Worth paying for a full service if you buy.

Yh that's the one in white, only thing I'm worried about is he's changed it from black to white, maybe he had a crash and to hide the damage, he's changed the panels! How can I check if the bikes been in an accident other than asking him and checking for damage. Another thing is the mileage, is 24000 a high mileage for a honda? Do the engine last long on these?

H.P.I.

& Insurance check,last time i did one was at a dealer (any) they pay  annually for theres,i slipped him a fiver and he even game me a print out.

Mileage is slightly above average but if maintained no problem.

This bike will keep its price at £900 for a year or two providing it`s maintained.

Put the number in stolen vehicles & M.I.D. to see if it`s still insured.
