THINKING of selling this year’s race kit, or looking to upgrade to something slicker and quicker for 2019? A new website could be about to make the whole process easier.
Racebuykz.com launched this summer as a brand new platform to buy and sell race bikes, track bikes, quality race parts, pitlane and paddock equipment and race transportation.
Aimed purely at racers, teams and workers within the professional and club racing paddocks along with trackday riders, Racebuykz.com offers a place to find exactly what you’re looking for, and quickly.
It is the brainchild of former British Superbike team boss Mark Smith-Halvorsen, the man behind the successful GBmoto squad, who came up with the idea after struggling to sell his race bikes and equipment when he left the championship.
“I was trying to sell the race bikes and realised there was nowhere specific online to showcase what we had available,” he explained. “There are the obvious places like eBay but I didn’t feel it was the right place.
“I wanted to reach a like-minded audience of people who knew what they were looking for and understood the industry, and it was all quite a frustrating process.
“That’s where the idea came from. I felt there was a definite need for a searchable platform where people could advertise their race machines or parts to the people that wanted to buy them.”
The site is easy to navigate and geared up to make the whole buying and selling process as simple and fuss-free as possible.
Adverts are separated into five sections – race bikes, track bikes, parts, garage and pitlane and transport and paddock – which allows for easy searching to pinpoint what you’re looking for in seconds.
For anyone looking to sell their race kit, getting listed is easy and there are various options and prices.
“We wanted to make the whole process as easy as possible,” added Smith-Halvorsen. “It’s a tough enough job for riders just dealing with the racing side let alone spending hours trying to sell your bike or scour the internet for their next machine or a specific part.
“With the race season heading to a close, now is the time when people are starting to sell this year’s race machinery and are looking for something new.
“Riders at club and professional level spend thousands of pounds on their race kit and Racebuykz.com is the place to come to reach a like-minded audience who are looking to buy what you are selling.”
So if you’re looking to shift your Supertwin to make way for a 600, are in the market for a new race truck or are looking to ditch your current steed to invest in a bit of ex-BSB machinery, head over to Racebuykz.com for all the latest listings.
