What i'm looking for right now is a 2 stroke beater bike that I can work on, learn how to fix and thrash around with about $500-800 investment. I don't care if it isn't pretty, just something that can be reasonably reliable and cheap to fix.
So i've been looking at RM/YZ/KX/CR 125s and 250s, and they seem all horribly overpriced on craigslist, like 1990, non running, beat to shit needing new tires for $1500. And this is in a state where dirt bikes are basically illegal to ride anywhere.
Anyway, I found this listed on FB about 5 months ago, listing said
I messaged him and he says the top end is blown now, rode it 4 times and didnt know how many hours since rebuild, and hes asking about $650 for it. NADA says average retail is $535. It appeals to me because it has newer tires and looks relatively clean. What would you guys say is a reasonable price? I'm gonna do the rebuild myself.
Also, in general for 1990s-early 2000's 125s and 250s, what is a reasonable price range that you realistically think people should be taking?
