Okay, I'm at a loss... I feel like worlds biggest dope.
Let me give you the run down first.
So after several weeks of looking at bikes, prices, researching the information, market values and all that jazz. I went and looked at the bike that I 'THOUGHT' I wanted. Now mind you I read this guide http://www.clarity.net/adam/buying-bike.html
and did the stuff listed in the guide. Well as some of you may know the bike is a 1999 SV650 with just under 17K on it. In the add the guy says it has never been laid down, its in good shape and all that. When I get there I give the bike a look over and find that the left back blinker is taped together, the sight glass for the oil says it's low, and he has never changed(not the first owner of the bike either) never changed the chain and sprocket, theres a ding in the gas tank with minor scratches, the bar ends are bent at some what of an angle.
So I offered the guy 2K he was asking 2700 market is 2300. He wouldn't take it, wouldn't go any lower then 2500. I didn't buy it just yet, so heres my question. After knowing all this and knowing what it's worth would you still go through with it.
I am having SERIOUS doubts about buying this bike. I know of another bike that is some distance from me, 99 ninja 500r with only 4k miles on it and the seller is only asking 1500 for it. I am having serious doubts guys. What should I do???
Oh yea, I went shopping today and got Gear, check it out
The jacket is freakin sweet, adjustable sleeves, zip out liner, with the shoulder, elbow and spine protection, I couldnt find the pants to go with it though. I am also scheduled to start my MSF course too....
What should I do about the bike situation
