Package deal got me...

Post by TRUAX » 11:14 am Jun 24 2019

I officially can't walk in my single stall garage. Bought a package deal this weekend on three awesome bikes, all setup and decked out for woods riding. Guy with declining health sold me everything he had dirt bike related in an all or nothing deal. The first bike is 96 KDX200 with all the goodies in great shape, the second a 95 KX250 with all the goodies including geared down w/flywheel weight for the woods, and the third a 96 KX500 also decked out with everything and setup for woods riding. They came with probably a dozen tires, a boat load of new parts and take of parts, oils, all his gear, stands, wheel chocks, repair manuals, you name it. Now I have to figure out what to do with all these things! More pictures to come as I clean the dust off as they've been sitting in the shed a couple years, all three were drained an started right up with some fresh mix. Will probably have to sell a bike in order to make back some investment and free up some room, heart breaking as they are all really nice machines.

Nice bikes!! I could imagine myself pulling up at home with that trailer all excited..."Honey come outside and look what followed me home." lol

One time I fell asleep and my daughter answered my phone and told my wife we found a John Deere on the side of the road and we're going to restore it. My wife said she was driving home thinking what in the hell? It was a John Deere Gator...kids power wheels.

HECK YEAH! Congratulations on all the bikes!

If I may offer a suggestion on how to make room for those bikes.

Step 1. Sell off that Honda. Get what you can, and be done with it. :-)

Step 2. Sell off that Chevrolet. Get what you can, and be done with it. :-)

Buy a Ford truck and a big trailer. Keep the bikes in the trailer. Problem solved, AND room in the garage. (in case you need to polish a Kawasaki).

Congrats again!

I wish man! The Honda is my old man's, the trailer is uhaul's, and the other vehicles belong to the guy that sold me these things! I can't complain about the deal I got though, can't beat it at $3500.

Occasionally my compulsive Craigslist watching pays off, I guess I have to factor in the hundreds of hours of my life scouring!

What I hate about the good craigslist deals is you have to be READY. They're gone in hours, even minutes. It's crazy. There's a cult of craigslist hawks in every city.

Taking a look at the 250 first, I'll post some pictures to get an idea of the shape of them which are really pretty good. Not to mention they have all the right goodies on them.

Sweet ride! I am digging the purple. It has several aftermarket protection pieces, all cool.

What a haul! For that price I would be driving away praying the gentlemen who sold them to you did wake up from his day dream. You'll easily make a return on that investment.

I also agree with KDXGarage, get a Ford haha.

Sadly I fall into a similar category... haha. But you are correct, that is how good deals are found. It is how I found my 97 220.

Those bikes go for what you paid for the whole package in my area. Talk about envious. 6 sets of tires you say??

A pocket full of cash is your best craigslist tool!
