Six-week ‘Bikes For Sale’ advertisement, no charge (August/September only)
FOR A LIMITED time only, we are offering The Bike Shed Times readers free advertisements to help you sell your special bike.
But there are a few conditions:
- You only get the free advert for six weeks
- Your bike must be in Western Australia
- Your bike must be ‘something special’ (as judged by us)
- All free advert submissions must be received by 30 September, 2017
How does it work?
You submit to us by email (email@example.com) at least one good quality photo of your bike, a description of your bike (up to 150 words), and a contact name and phone number for publication in your advertisement.
We will reply to your submission and, if we accept it, we will post your advert within 24 hours.
Advertisements will generally follow the existing format on our Bikes For Sale page. (See it here.)
What is ‘something special’?
It’s a bike that’s exotic, rare, unusual, historically significant, or simply drop-dead gorgeous. We prefer bikes that are licensed, running and in excellent condition, but we will listen to exceptions (like maybe a rusty old Vincent Black Shadow or a very early Z1 Kawasaki that’s out of rego).
What is a ‘good quality’ photo?
It’s in focus.
The entire bike is visible.
The bike is well lit (no strong back-lighting or side-lighting).
The exposure is just right (not too dark, not too light).
Phone pics are ok if they meet all these criteria. (But if your best mate is a photographer with pro-quality kit, please ask him to take the photo for you.)
Why would you bother?
Because an advertisement on The Bike Shed Times will reach a whole bunch of West Australian motorcyclists who don’t spend their spare time on Gumtree. We have more than 8,000 followers on Facebook and our website attracts around 12,000 hits a month. (Someone out there wants your bike, right?) And almost all of our traffic is from Perth.
Why are we doing it?
Because we want more readers, and we’re using your special bike to attract them. Sneaky, hey?
So hop to it. Here’s that email link again: firstname.lastname@example.org
