Overland bikes for sale in Cape Town

Hi i'm looking for a bike to do a trans africa trip from Cape Town at the end of the year.

I'm interested in buying either a KLR, Tenere or Honda in the 600/650 category. My budget is around R30,000 depending on what modifications i still need to make on the bike.

If anyones finishing a trip in Cape Town and would be interested in selling on their bike, it could be an option.

otherwise any help would be appreciated.
cheers

Honda Baja for sale in SA

We have a fantastic Baja 250 for sale, just completed trans africa, this is the bike to have if your interested, its light, cheap to run on fuel, tyres and brake pads and hassle free. I rode an Africa Twin whilst my girlfriend rode the 250 and there were many times I wish I had a smaller lighter bike. Anyway give us a shout if you might consider down sizing in cc's.

Also we have a few spares with it and panniers and its well with in your budget.

Cheers
Robbo
