Damn... I was hoping to avoid the DMV this year... Mayans let me down too
This is my friend Carlos' bike and he wants me to drop the price to $700.00 so he can return from Porto Rico.... Title in hand, runs great
been watching craigslist like a hawk for the past 2 months. looking to throw down about 1000$ or less for a dual sport. problem is, people on Craigslist think their 600$ clapped out bikes are worth 2 or 3 grand. anybody out there that can help me out? know a guy? etc. looking for something like a DR350 or XT, XL, or maybe even a KLX650C. i aint too picky. i'm recovering from a crash and its not much longer before i get cleared from the docs to work again and ill need transportation.
PM RTWdoug. He just picked up a project KLX650
OR PM Pete about that KTM400. LC4 400 would be a sweet ride
i think i saw the KLX650 on CL he bought. looked real nice and was only 850$, but since i had no ride of my own i had to wait for whenever my dad could take me out to look at it, it sold before he was able to drive me out that way.
sent him a pm, though too bad hes 450 miles away from me. I dont have any friends nice enough to drive my ass out there to look at it, and i cant afford his asking price. I only have 950$ to spend
This one's been around for a while... it's getting cheaper.
Here's another Sub but... it may be a little down on HP.
somehow i knew someone was gonna suggest this one to me. I remember when it was first posted at around 2000$. since i need a daily driver, im gonna stay away from that one since its an old Swedish bike and near impossible to find parts for, and it has no kickstand, speedo, or tachometer. id be taking a 900$ gamble on that. and seen the 50 too. it is nice, except its a 50, and a 2 stroke. Thanks for the suggestions though! yet if its posted on craigslist within 150 ~ 200 miles of central FL, ive already seen it.
Patience young grasshoppa.
A good deal will come along soon!
Any luck finding your XRL?
Check out the jax Craigslist. There was a 98 KLR250 for sale this morning for $1000. Not a lot of hp, but reliable as a stone.
Little KLRs don't get a lotta love here on ADV, but you could do a lot worse for a do-it-all bike. I had a '98 KLR250 myself for a few years; rugged, reliable, low-maintenance and cheap. I see 'em selling for a grand or so pretty often.
10+ yr. old XT225s sell in the same price range, they're a little down on power vs. the KLR but ya get electric start in the tradeoff. I had a little XT too, and had lotsa fun on that little bike.
Both the KLR and the XT beat the hell outta drivin a cage, and that's the triple truth, RUTH!
I saw that one as well. was painted maroon. if its on CL in FL within 200 miles of Orlando, ive seen it i was pondering that one but i guess im gonna have to take the good Dr's advice and wait even longer for something to come along.
try putting a 'wanted' ad on CL, it doesnt cost anything, & who knows, you may find what you are looking for.
You wouldnt want the KLX I got, top end is apart, and no title.
Looking for a cheap truck to keep on my central florida property for shit hauling,needs to be legal anybody got ?
NOPE REDUCED to $1000 even - someone shouldn't have to "pay" for my jackassery (ie: not leaving the title open)
Bought from a bud that needed a cash infusion for $1K, and then, like a dumbass, I spent another $145 on registration/title because I closed out the title.
13,242 original miles. Runs strong - needs carb tweaked to be perfect. Great brakes, suspension seems okay to me. I've only ridden it around my neigborhood a few times - enough to know that it ain't bent anywhere. It tracks straight and no wierd stuff happening in the front end or rear. Strong, solid clutch, and it shifts just fine through the six speeds.
It ain't perfect, but it starts, runs, shifts, stops, and will even wheelie pretty easily.
Prefer local sale. Title in hand.
PM me for contact info.
Some crummy pictures - but better than nothin. (Also - please give me at least 24hrs to reply to PMs as I do not frequent ADV as much as I used to anymore).
Believe it or not, I really DIG that little moto. Kinda reminds me of my TS50J Goucho. I think it's cool as hell!
if ya come down to look at it, bring the 400 ill meet you somewhere and take it off your hands
