    This guys got a bunch of old dirt bikes and three wheelers for sale. Including, wait for it, a three wheeler that Chuck Norris owned! With documentation. I bought a couple of fenders and foot pegs from him today. He's a good guy to deal with and will ship. Here's one of his ads.

    And, "45+ mpg"? That thing should get north of 70 mpg.

    I'm a sucker for Hondas. Seems like a good price to me :dunno

    As far as that 45MPG stat, well I'd guess the person that wrote the ad doesn't know how to work a calculator.

    They brought out a new, EFI CRF250L for $4500 last year, less that that 230 sold for new in '08.

    A five year old, 400 mile bike that sat alot sounds like a recipe for mucho headaches.

    And they probably haven't run 2 full tanks of gas thru it if it only has 400 miles.

    Almost guaranteed to have some gummed up jets, but it's only 1 carb. Other than that if it was stored inside it should be good to go.
