Motorcycle or scooter rental in Northern Cyprus

I am currently on holiday in Southern Cyprus heading up to the Northern Turkish controlled area next week and would like to rent a small motorcycle or scooter for a week but am having no luck finding a rental company anywhere in the area, can anyone point me towards one?

Mark, have you contacted the HU Cyprus Community? There's 9 members! Someone might be willing to lend or rent something.

I started my trip in the south of the island then walked across the border to the north which just required showing a passport at both immigration offices, no visa required with a UK passport, my travelling partner in crime has a US passport and it was the same for them. A week later we crossed back with the same procedure. It could be different if you start in the north as the whole situation is very political.
As to scooter rental if you are interested, we could only find one in the north which was 15 Euros a day for a knackered piece of crap, much fun two up!

I don't think there is a problem if you enter the south and then you can ride into the north but I believe you will need to get insurance for the north available at the border.

I visited from the North to South last year. Was no problem for me, but I met some other people who were not allowed to enter.

I think the people at the border like bikers
