    Hello my name is Samuel. I just recently got a 1996 Yamaha tw200 for $200.00 that I found on craigslist and the only thing that was wrong with it is that the carburetor ear for the float is broken on one side

    Welcome, nice find on a TW.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Welcome Samirar. Great forum with a lot of good information for your oldish bike. The TW has been around for 26 years now and still has a following - that says something. Where in GA are you from? I used to live in Savannah and also in Columbus - long ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

    Dang, I think I saw this bike on craigslist, but didn't wanna drive up there in case it had serious problems. Guess I missed out.

    I got some bad news about the bike yesterday. I went to the dmv about getting a title for the bike after running the vin number and found out the bike was stolen so I'm taking the bike back to the guy for a refund and looking a bike with a title. I got a bill of sale from the guy with his information

    i guess it was too good to be true...did the seller seem like a good person?...is it going to be easy for you to get the money back?...i always get the seller's registration for the bikes i buy...one way to not have to worry about this happening...and if it was a bike that the seller had never registered i guess it would probably be a good idea to run the VIN at the DMV to make sure the bike is not hot...something you just don't think about sometimes...good luck in finding a new bike...check out searchtempest.com to search craigslist easily
