joy thats just how things are when it comes to buying items. if you look on houston.craiglist you will see a certain bike for X amount of dollars here, but of course if you search all around the united states you will find people selling it for cheaper. some people want to get what "they" think is a fair price on an item and you might not agree with it, while other people might want to just get rid of something at a low low price. if you dont mind waiting then just go get one in florida when stuntwars comes around but its like everything else in the world you will get one for a deal and a week or 2 later a better deal with come around

I'll add to this as I noticed this too...

People here seem to be willing to pay the ridiculous prices for 'em, which is good for those selling 'em since in most cases aftermarket goodies dont add much to the value of a vehicle; This is especially true for one as cheap as a mini.

I have 2 of 'em, (bought both used/ stock for $500 & $550) one of which was purchased from a member here; both where in running order & the one purchased elsewhere (I paid less for) was in much better shape.

Good deals are out there, as mentioned be patient & ready to pull the trigger when you find one, & fwiw this would be the last place I'd be looking for a used mini bike; as you've noticed the prices aren't realistic & whatever you buy will likely be completly thrashed &/or abused by a rider 3-5 times heavier than the bike is designed for.

srsly we get it. Supply and demand, geographical location, the sun the moon and the stars all contribute the price of a 50, new, used, modded or not.

This thread moved on from that some time ago and is now ol whats-her-name defending herself from previous posts

hypothetical question:

if your selling your bike for say .... $8000, but a local buyer finds it in another state in the same or better condition for $6500 but doesnt want to drive or have it shipped. would you lower the price to help that local person out and sell it for $6500 ?
