    Oh forgot to mention it only has a 25mm hole through the spindle which can be a limiting factor? also the tailstock suffer from wear apart from that they are solid

    Of those three the second (Star) lathe looks by far the nicest - most pricey too of course.

    The first on your list is a generic Chinese hobby lathe - 125 kg, so a step up from a C3 but still no comparison to the big boys in the other links. Available from several sellers no doubt, for much the same price. For just a bit more money you could get the (heavier) Arc version with tooling bundle:

    Model Super C6 Lathe - Arc Euro Trade

    but it's twice your budget anyway...

    You may be pushing it to get anything decent for 500 euros - maybe a plain turning lathe (without screwcutting capacity) perhaps? Or something very knackered. Or you might have to just get lucky (personal connections/putting word around locally might find you the best deal - I'm sure most sales don't get advertised.)

    Nice Bike (Got 2011 280 Beta factory myself) and worth little more than the Lathe so if he's into bikes he'll take you upon it, I would anyway.!
