Why Am I Here?


You know the drill, it's the dangerous pointy tool which never sees the light of day. We have one as well, but we also work on this (hopefully) useful website, with bikes for sale, reviews, a free used price guide and more.

Have We Got Something Wrong?

We try to make sure everything is correct on the site but if you do notice something wrong or obviously missing please do let us know: ian@thebikemarket.co.uk

If you're sitting there thinking "this page is worse than an online encyclopedia" then get in touch and help us create a decent page to help people. That's what we are aiming for and we would love your help!

How Do We Calculate The Price Guide?

Everyone knows that the best way to value a bike is to browse through the classifieds for a while. It tells you what is going on in the market right now and roughly what a bike is worth.

We try to do the same thing for you by monitoring thousands of bikes every day, seven days a week. Actually it's a badass server doing the number crunching, but we did tell it what to look for.

Where Does The Popularity Data Come From?

The data is derived from the DVLA but there are a few important things to note:

  • Bikes and scooters tend to be recorded as they are described on the V5 document. Most of the time this reads as you would expect it to but sometimes it appears as "Other", "Missing" or a slight variation of the name. We do our best to interpret the data but it will never be 100% perfect and should be treated as a guide.
  • Generally speaking the older data is likely to have more of these inconsistencies.
  • SORN stands for Statutory Off Road Notification.

Who Are We?

Ian Ian: Communes With The Prices

What is a bike worth? It depends on whether you are buying, selling, how many are around and whether anyone else actually wants one right now. It's a tricky problem but we gave it a go anyway and popped the results on this website in the hope it helps.

If you disagree with the price guide for a model then please get in touch because we would love the feedback. We really are interested because if we're wrong it needs to be fixed and any help is most welcome.

We're always looking for ways to improve the site and appreciate any suggestions. It might be a new feature you would like to see or something about the layout which is currently a bit confusing.
