I would be on my way already with $1000 in hand. The Honda fourtrax alone in decent shape would be worth $500.  That’s a lot of goodies to work on or part out and make good money on eBay but it would be over time.

yea thats what I was thinking- my only concern is that I would just run into too many problems on some of the bikes.

Wow Very nice.  Price range is really good for a bike like that with all the after market stuff.  Just be careful when you are buying.  

Make sure it’s all on the up and up.  If they ask you to send them your email address so they can send you more pics etc do not do so.  There are scams out there just to get your email addres and obtain personal information. 

Im not sure of the price range of bikes like that in your area but a bike like that here would be about $5000 K so I would see a red flag 🚩 but out near you that may be the value.

So I looked up that bike in your area and kbb has it at $4300 in good condition.  So if it’s in very good or better condition you have to figure $4800 and it has some after market parts.  So that’s a very good price this person is selling to for. Plus the owner is expecting a small deduction in price during negotiation prob no more then $200 at best maybe even $100 if you have the cash in hand.

I'm hoping so.  I have a buyer for my sportsman for $2500 so hopefully I'll have enough cash to invest in a good flip after that one is sold.

I would buy used off CL.  If you want new though, I have amazon prime so I would do Amazon- otherwise I dont know of any difference between them.

you can usually get them running used for $400-600

looking at this polaris 335 again..  https://roanoke.craigslist.org/snw/d/buchanan-1999-polaris-335-4x4/6814841462.html   The guy said he would give it for 950 with a plow attachment.  I'm going to be up his way this weekend and was thinking of at least going to look at it.  Nada says its worth 600-1900 depending on condition..  right now it needs a starter and battery...  (1900 would be like new cond which this thing is not, but it's looking great for its age..)

kbb says its worth 1400 trade in or 2200 retail, but you almost never get as much as kbb says they'er worth

I'm still interested in the 570 in NC, but the price is just out of my range and I doubt I can get there fast enough (this weekend is the soonest I could look at anything)

I'll try that- but he sounded pretty firm.  I'm hoping I can talk him down If I can come up with other problems with the bike...  looks like the front end might be out of alignment- maybe from a wreck.  dont know till you get there heh

thanks!

Absolutely! Go through the bike and dont look excited. And explain how much money in parts and labor you have to put into the bike to what I like to say “get it back to good”  is.   Show him the cash and say look I’m here to buy.  He will come back at $900.

Definitely a scam

the real test is whether they will actually meet you face to face.

yup- what I try to do- as soon as you act interested, they know they have you where you wont walk away..  Thats another thing- its hard to walk away from a deal-even if it isn't a deal.  Have done it though.

there was a 90s kodiak 400 4x4 that the guy wanted $500 from it and I went out and looked at it- just too much that he didnt know (didnt know what was wrong with it, he had parts off of it and 'didnt know where they were')...just a mess.  I walked away

That’s great.  Walk away but hold on to that phone number. You ever k ow when you will come across another Kodak and that guy may still have his.

      Got a good deal on an 89 bayou 300. Couple questions. First is in the picture I have posted. Note the two wires at the bottom of the pic (white and black/yellow). They were not hooked up to anything and Im not sure if they are supposed to go to the battery or somewhere else and what they are for.
      Second question is I had the carb apart for a cleaning. The vaccum operated slide has a spring under the cap with a plastic clip that goes inside the spring. Is there a proper location inside the spring for that clip. Right now it is just below half way inside the spring.
      It runs alright but keeps fouling the plug. Pulled the plug off, cleaned it and dried it off and it starts back up but not sure how long before itll do it again, last time it was about 20 minutes of riding and it bogged out and wouldnt start.

      So I was looking at my John Deere today and though, how could I make this cooler. So I tinted the windows. Lol.
       
      As I got home I was staring at my Polaris and the wife’s kfx. I thought I would have to replace the crank because of piston slap on the Polaris. Turns out I just had to adjust the choke cable a tad more. Runs great.
       
      Why do we have insurance if we only need it sometimes, and that’s questionable.
