Nothing, just tied of thrashing it on the trails. Going to keep it for the DS rides. Need to start replacing broken parts on it. LOL

Very nice and what I'm looking for. Only problem is OTD price is probably a lot more and also I don't have that much money CIH

hmmm...what is Trasky's? Will they finance the balance? If so someone go throw $50 on it for me big

I think Tasky's is just consigning it for someone, I'm sure they will look at offers and OTD price is negotiable. Tasky's has a great reputation and if you go there to check out the bike be prepared to Drool http://www.taskysmetriccycle.com/

Sent them an email with a few options and...
Thank you for your interest, but the seller just lowered the price $250. We need to give it a week or so. He basically garaged this bike the last few years and it is really clean with low hours, so he is hoping to get what he wants out of it on the price. I will keep you in mind though if he lowers the price.
Thanks,

Didn't mention anything else so i'm going to pass on it this weekend. No sense in running around trying to get stuff done for them to sell it to someone else when I can be out riding on Sat Dirt

Is this one of yours? Either way let me think about it. Those older kdx's are just butt ugly, lol.

Not mine just happened to see a few times on bham craigslist....probably could get it cheaper than what he is asking! Who cares if its ugly you want a trail bike, its just going to get beat on anyway, this way you dont have to care if it gets beat up. big

How about something like this? Cheaper than a KTM but better on tight trails

Gorgeous bike but not enough feedback on them. Only ones I've seen are 450's(i think) and that's too much.

GAS GAS makes a great bike also. I have a 07 EC300 that I have no plans on parting with for a long time. Gas Gas bikes evlove over the production years instead of 1 year of cutting edge design and then let the owners be the R&D department at there expense. They have more of a tendency to more or less copy other manufactures best ideas and apply them to their bikes plus they use the keep it simple approch. Check them out at:

Don't have a clue what all models there are (just learning ktms)
Most important...I don't think I've seen ANY for sale in my area (but a 450)

*i will check them out tho!

My father in law has a 2004 GasGas ec300, They are sweet bikes. I would not hesitate to get one if I was looking and the price was right. Every bit s good if not better then the KTM 300 and if you need parts they are cheaper.

I've only heard positive things about the GasGas bikes also. I see a guy commuting on their motard near my house, but I'm never in a position to flag him down! I was heavily considering getting a used one before I completely switched gears and went a different direction. They pop in and out of CL...

PostSubject: this a good bike?   5/5/2011, 3:42 pm

so i was in my old neighborhood the other night and was looking at my old non running 68 chevell malibu. it is just sitting under a cheap costco car canapy. the motor is trash, and so on and so on. needs to be reworked through out. fuel lines gas tank brake lines brakes rear end transmission motor. repaint and interior. the only thing i got going for me on this car is that there is no heavy rust. mainly surfave. and the body/ chasis is straight as can be.
my neigbor on the other hand is drooling over this car. he has a couple of motorcycles he has not ridden much both 06 yz250f and a wr250f and wants to trade his wr250f for the car. the bike has only 12 hrs on it but im still cant part selling/trading the pile of chevelle i got. i mean the bike is really clean, besides the front fender being folded over it looks like when he dumped it. it has that white stress look i the blue fendor.

any suggestions or should i just walk away from this?

Probably a fair trade for the low hour WR, but I would keep the Chevelle. Cool

Here's a pic of my 67 that I bought back in 86'.

Not sure what's going on. Text the guy in Ellensburg for the heck of it. If I understand his response he's showing it in Seattle tomorrow and if that falls through he'll call me.

I'm not desperate yet (I'm actually thinking if the market slows down I might not mind holding off until next year. no more riding Walker thou), but I am still looking at options.

Just PMed Grandpa about his 2006 kdx200

*as much as i want a KTM...I wouldn't mind dickering around on something else for a couple of years.
