usually if a bike has been repainted it's either because the person has stupid amounts of cash or he wrecked it. in the case of a gs500 it's easy to rule out the rich theory, so it looks more like he wrecked it.
it may have been just cracked plastic, or it could be a complete rebuild, but go into it knowing that it is wrecked and he's asking too much.

i wouldnt totally rule it out as a possible buy. if you want to make it look good, simply sell the red fairings for some decent money and buy parts to make it a naked bike. the faired gs looks goofy :P

No Deal.

I Ride, (and love the gs500) but still think thats a bit high.

Although i love these bikes, their resale value falls quickly, especially a repainted/dropped/bunk one like that. Dealers will offer you better deals on comparable bikes,(not to mention already checked out).

My advice:
Any older, gs500 will go for much cheaper ( as in at least 1000.) And the air cooled, carbonated little engines make them the easiest things to work on. Pass. People looking to 'trade up' sell them quickly, and cheaply. You could easily find better in the next couple of weeks.

gs 500's rock.

but not that one. at least not at that price. you can get a non-wrecked one for that (without all the assosiated issues)

remember...the idiot who wrecked it is the same idiot who took (didnt take) care of it.

yeah. for 2k that bike would be interesting. a fair price for all is probably a bit above that but not 2500. more than that, and your probably better off with a fresh one outta a crate.
