    I've got that same Chevy base chassis with the 6.0 and a 12' box on it in my plumbing company. 10-12 mpg and it never leaves town. I doubt highway would be any different.

    Probably a pain in the arse to load through that small door. If it had a wheelchair lift...

    My buddy had one and it was almost perfect for hauling bikes.
    A U Haul ramp that slid under the body from the back door, which is the perfect size for a bike to fit thru.
    Big enough to haul a couple bikes and sleep in, but not to large to be a pain parking and driving.
    Milage is spot on for those engines, I get 13 mph in my pickup @ 5 over the limit highway, a bit less in town.

    Cheap Tiger, needs love but good enough for the money I think, bet the guy would take 600 cash

    Price is Negotiable! 97 Triumph Tiger. Has seen better days, but still has some life left in her. The Bad: not running, leaks oil and gasoline, battery dead and probably needs the carbs cleaned. The Good: brand new tires, brand new chain and sprockets, new brake pads and new rotors in the rear.

    This bike started as a project, I don't have the time, skills or $$ to get it running. Probably an easy set of fixes for anyone with skill and time, or great for parts. These "steamers" are allegedly indestructible, if interested email or text (only) nine seven oh, six nine oh, seven six nine oh. Take a look, make an offer, price is flexible.

    Pretty refreshing to see a realistically priced vintage dirt bike actually. Probably not a scam, just someone who doesn’t think their tired old bike is worth twice what it was when new...

    You never heard the saying; "If its got wheels or [Edited] its going to give you trouble?!" Looks doubled true for the combo pictured above.

    2004 KDX 200 Ready to rock! *** - $2000

    looks plated...


    Bike is ready to go!
    Has all the necessary protective parts already added check out the pictures.
    Cylinder was ported so it runs really nice now.
    Tires are in excellent shape! I also have a few extra parts and extra springs for the suspension if you want to adjust.
    Price is firm!
