    That KTm is mine, back off all you other lurkers. Only $1000 and they pay for shipping, score for me. Should I worry that they want to hold the money longer than my financial protection lasts? Seems pretty legit.............

    hahahaha. Whenever you see a bike way below value and it only has one picture of the bike you can assume its a scam.

    1997 YAMAHA WR250 20hrs since new - $1333 (Signal hill)

    20 hrs since new, just got first set of new tires, got a ktm white headlight and front fender to update the look a bit, new fork seals and oil, new twin air filter, spark arrestor, few other little things.. Bone stock otherwise! Green sticker current till 2019, title in hand. Ready to ride anywhere year round. $1,333. NO Trades, offers in person only please. Thank you.

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    I have a plated YZ250...with a desert tank...aftermarket headlight...I wish I had a kick stand, wide ratio transmission, and cylinder ported for lower end. So...shouldn't I just get a WR250?

    I think low ballers have turned CL just as toxic. And no-call no-shows.
    Im pretty sure the no-shows are mainly due to losing their nerve to low ball.

    Not sure if this is still an active thread but if so I saw a set of decent looking rims and tires with rotors and a sprocket for 200 bucks. Don’t know what they fit. On OfferUp in Inglewood, CA.

    A couple of things have been posted recently from OfferUp. This site is new to me and I have a bunch of stuff to unload due to an upcoming move. And looking for alternatives. How does it compare to CL? Anyone?

    I find folks on OfferUp much less flaky than on Craigslist for some reason. I also get a LOT fewer "Is this still available" enquiries. I like the fact that member's identity can be verified and you communicate in the app, no need to use phone, text or email. Had good success selling & buying on OfferUp.
