Awesome deals / Are they stupid?

Postby Mikeurtno » Thu Oct 02, 2014 9:04 am

I am sure most people here looks through motorcycle classifieds from time to time. The point of this thread is to post classifieds that make you say either:

"This is awesome! If I only had the money..."

or

"What an idiot! They will never sell it for that price!"

I had a screenshot from a CL ad, can't find it but if I do I'll post it. A few years back some dude in Monmouth (I think) was selling a bone stock 04 or 05 R6, wanted something like $2k over book value. Apparently because everything was original. Including the tires. Uh, no.

1984 honda v65 magna $6300.

NADA value in excellent condition is just over $3000. Seriously WTF is the seller thinking?

Hey Lebowski! I think this would qualify as awesome deal, would it not?

That does in fact look like a sweet deal. I need to look into the gsxr shock conversion.

Gotta love when people are asking for more than retail value for a used bike.
