Thats how I came across most of my minis, almost always just a dirty carb. People think these bikes that were $1200 brand new 10 years ago are still worth $800-900! When you can grab them for $300-500 I always do.

Oh and just because you put some stunt parts on a beat up old fiddy doesnt make it worth $1000-1500...

I guess theres a buyer for every market though. Congrats, wanna sell it?

I agree with 50 prices being through the roof. I remember back in the day you could pick up a 50 that was only a couple years old for less than 500 bucks. Now everybody wants 1000 bucks for a 2003 xr50. Not worth it.

Yeah, I thought it was just a craze 10 years ago, but the demand is still here!
I am embarrassed to say that in 2008 I bought a 2005 xr50 for $900, but even more embarrassed to say I sold it with a couple more acquired goodies for $1,200. I literally put out a feeler thinking folks would laugh, but two kids pulled up later that day with cash!
