Did I get ripped off?

Recommended Posts

He all, new to bikes again after being away for many years. Just traded for this bike. Motor is tight, just fresh and have the tickets and checked compression psi. Motor tight. Have done a lot to bring up to snuff. Have a pro circuit pipe too. Not done polishing it yet.

Did I get ripped off having about $1800 in this bike??

Not bad, around my area a bike like that would go for 14-1500 max. Either way you have a bike now ride and enjoy it!

I think you did pretty good! Looks very clean!

I agree, looks like a good deal. You're going to have a lot of fun on that thing after being away for a while.

I always think you can't tell if it was a good deal for at least a year.

I bought my bike for the same price, with brand new engine and suspension. In this last year I've bent a shift fork, cracked the cylinder and destroy front and rear suspension. If you do your own work though.

It's a crapshoot.

The large price tags for new bike include peace of mind.

I paid $1,500 for my 03. I agree wit GMO397, you wont know if its a good deal until you ride it for a year. I had a full suspension done by factory connection and cracked my crank so had it bored out to a 300 by eric gorr.

$1800 isn't too bad, as long as you plan to ride it. You'll be lucky to get that out of it when you sell.

A lot depends on the condition of the bike and how much they go for around you.

If it is an '03, then around me they go for about $1500-2000. So you are right in the ball park for price.

Now, go out and ride it and if you get a few years from it without major problems, then you got a good deal.
