Frequently asked questions

Can I sell my motorcycle on eBay to support the charity?

If you’ve got a bike you no longer use we would, of course, be delighted if you donated the proceeds to us! eBay also offers used vehicle sales and is the most popular platform for selling used vehicles to get the most for your beloved bike or car.

Is it safe to list used motorcycle helmets?

If you’re donating riding gear remember that helmets are not recommended for buying second hand as sellers can’t guarantee their safety so we don’t recommend listing or buying them second hand.

Do you send used motorcycles or riding gear to Africa?

Ebrima Ceesay, a motorcycle health worker in The Gambia, monitoring underweight babies in a remote village and ensuring they have the correct nutrition with the support of Two Wheels for Life.

Lots of people kindly offer to give us used riding gear or motorcycles to offer to health workers. Unfortunately there are a number of reasons why this isn’t a great option.

Firstly shipping costs are very high so the only way to make postage economically viable is to to send a full container which is also expensive at a cost running to many thousands but is something we  do for items that cannot be source locally like large shipments of motorcycles, parts, helmets.

Also, gear needed needs to be specific to the environments where it will be used. So size, warmth and quality are important, and very hard to control with second hand gear. And bikes need to come with spare parts to ensure they can be kept on the road.

How will the money I raise be spent?

The money raised from the sales of your leathers, boots, gloves, protective gear, bike parts, luggage and more is extremely valuable. You’ll be helping health workers like Ebrima Ceesay shown right, reach remote villages across Africa.
