This looks sweet!

I think I love this bike. Should I?  :nono:

I really don't want to let this one go but I just bought a home and have to make big sacrifices. I purchased this bike from the original owner who purchased it brand new in 1979. I kept this bike in his garage for over 30 years and only put 3K miles on it. I purchased it a few years back and have added another 1500 miles to it when the sun was out. Right now it has less than 6K on it and is in perfect working condition. It has an electric start & a kick start which I though added that vintage look to it. There is nothing wrong with the bike mechanically and very little cosmetically. Other than a little where & tear from being 30 years old, this bike is in GREAT condition.

Hate to let it go but I need the money. . .

I really hate being basically Too big for those bikes! (not fat!) haha

Those nice small bikes are just that sometimes (like that one) Very nice and usually cheaper then larger bikes. (that I've seen)

Heck I even look a lil big for the GS500, but I dont care and thats the smallest I will go.

It's 230 miles from me though. I'm thinking rent a trailer and take it. Worth the money?
I'd give him more like $400 though.  :icon_twisted:

$1500
http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/mcy/2945421691.html


As it so happens, this is right in my backyard.  :thumb:

As a newb to GS500's (and riding in general) what should I look for/at on a used one to judge its worth? Are there any particular trouble spots/signs that I should watch for? Is $1500 a good price on this '95?
It seems it has become necessary to qualify my posts:
I am/am not trying to start an argument. This post is/is not intended to be a personal attack. I am/am not merely attempting to present a different viewpoint.

Select the words that apply to you.

I wish i wasn't a college student and had money. Oh well, looks like I'll stick with the gs500, study hard, not look at the ridiculous deals on craigslist, and get my dream bike in a few years. WOW though. WOW

Here's the reply from that GSXR(has to be a spammer) I replied and said i'll be picking it up, just need photos and a VIN :police:

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in purchased my 2006 suzuki gsx-r 600. I am selling this vehicle because I am in the military and my unit will be sent back to Afghanistan. Also, this bike way to powerful for my son and i don`t want to risk his life, so there's no use on keeping it.
The price is low because I need to sell it before May, 1`st . The bike is in pristine condition, no accident history, clear title, no dents or dings and no scratches. Always adult driven and garaged, never abused or raced. If you are interested, it's still available for sale and the price, as stated in the ad, is $2500
The vehicle is in Fort Belvoir, VA and in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping charges to your location.

Let me know if you are interested, email back.

2006 Suzuki GSX-R GSX-R 600
Mileage:  12,500 miles
Type of title:  Clear
Engine size (cc):  600
Type:  Sport bike
Exterior color:  Blue
smoke tinted covers

Waiting your answer

Cordially

haha not even a good spammer! i got the same auto reply message when i asked for photos/vin haha

i found that insane deals on gsxrs are usually too good to be true. with the market for those things, even an untitled ones go for a fair price since that are regularly raced.

hmm...i may have to scrunch together money to make this happen. Not worth $900 though. more like $600. Thoughts?

I donno. $900 seems decent with all the extras. Pretty pricey exhaust. It shouldn't be too terribly hard to fix the starting problem. I'd offer $750 and go from there.
