I found it on craigslist.The guy selling it is looking for a car for his brother and I happen to be selling a 99 ford explorer.He said if brother likes it he will trade me straight title for title.

The only thing it needs is ummmm I forgot the part.But the battery will not hold a charge and a new battery only last like 2-3 days then you have to jump it off. $92 part.

Dont know mileage or condition of the ford but ebay shows 2-4k on their side for the price of the Explorer... Sounds like a good trade.

Don't concern yourself w the mileage. Commuting or long trips aren't nearly as much abuse as short trips w multiple shifts, braking, etc.

The link you posted is for an r6... that mileage isn't high (as I got an '02 with way more mileage). Ask that dude to come off the price a little, seems a little steep. The only issue with these bikes are the second gear. Ask about that and make your decision. Good luck and good find.
