Prices

I was looking at the classifids on this site earlier. The prices seem resonable. I saw a 04' Busa for like 4000, or something like that. Anyway, do the prices for the bikes seem resonable to you guys. I am looking for a used bike to but and just trying to get a feel for prices for bikes in general; nothing specific. Let me know what ou guys think...thanks

-Matt

Only way an 04' busa is only $4000 is if it is wrecked or fradulent.

You can use either Kelley Blue Book or NADA for prices. I just download the .pdfs from this site. It is a lot quicker than clicking my way into KBB or NADA ten times a day.

I see 04 R1s and crap on there for 3500. They are all scams. There is a Busa in my local paper for 3500 its a custom 03 the guy has to get rid of. Check it out www.wichitaeagle.com

FUCKING SCAMMERS

i hate all these people posting their damn 04 r1's and 05 gsxr's and "selling" them for like 3500 bucks. its sad that people are really that stupid to think they are getting THAT big of a deal without realizing that they are gettin taken for their money. how do police/FBI not close in on these people and shut their shit down? anyone else angered by this?

What pisses me off is that the guy selling the Busa in our local paper has his bike listed right by mine. Makes mine look way overpriced.

Exactly how do these scams work? Do they take the money and not give the bike? Give a wrecked bike? What's the deal?

I know we're all tired of all the internet scams. Only problem, is that a lot of them originate overseas. Like the Nigerian scams and such. If it's to good to be true, then it probably is.

Often times there is no bike. The seller will tell you that for some very important reason, the bike just happens to be in (insert some country here, ussually europe, often time military related) and that they will have it shipped to you.
