flitecontrol Final drive runs $100 and up depending on need and supply. Tanks, depending on condition, can go for $80-100+, it adds up. But it takes some time to remove and pack the stuff too.;

Freedom Can you seriously get lot of $$ for parting these bikes out? I'm not sure how. I've seen motor/trans go for $300. How is anything else worth anything? Just asking because if I could part mine out for over 700 I def. would. I don't believe the parts could add up over $500.

The DEUCE I purchased my scoot for $500 and all it needed was a battery but unfortunately there was $524 in past registration due. Proceed slowly.

ClassicFnAllen The battery is more than likely dead, theres probably **** all in the carbs, and I bet the tank is probably rusting. check it out. I bought my bike non-running, for 750. Its on its period every month, but other than that, I love it, and just need a carb rebuild. That 88 is in better cosmetic shape than mine, too. Definitely check it out.

Crobins365 Take a look at it, but proceed with caution for sure (having been down that road a few times now myself). Believe it or not, even if you part it out, it can be hard to get back $500 if some of the key parts (carbs, engine, for example) are a mess. If it were me, I'd take $300 in cash, go give it a look, and if it seems feasible either for parts or a rebuild, offer him the cash and see what he says. I have a $700 "project" in my garage right now that I wish I'd paid about $200 for.

scuba If i were you i would buy it. who knows maybe a carb clean and whatnot and you have a oldie but a goody bike.

firemedic Thanks for the info guys... Rev it up, If I get it then decide to part it out you have first dibs on the engine bars

fergy Well, he says it was running a few months ago when he got it, so it is worth checking in to for that price. You should get a pretty clear picture of the guy when you get to talk to him and if you feel there's something fishy, then you might want to back off. You could easily part it out if it is totally trashed, but the photo looks pretty good. Just my 2 cents!
