    Considering Selling TW

    I am not 100% positive that I am going to sell my TW, but I am 95% sure.

    2001, Great condition, 1,300 miles.

    I have done some cheap mods, 2" taller FLY Racing bars, short stalk blinkers, custom fabricated headlight guard and wider pegs (done by me).


    My son is out riding me on his XR100, so the reason I am considering selling is to get into a little bigger bike.

    Don't let my SoCal location deter you, I have a good friend that does cross country vehicle transport and will haul/deliver the bike for cheap.

    The bike is pretty dirty in these pictures, as these are not the ones that I have taken for a real Sale Ad.






    I am thinking starting out at $2,400.00, is that too much to ask?

    I see low mileage bikes in my area for around $2500-$3000.

    Sometimes as low as $1800, but I wont sell if I have to go that low.

    Thanks.

    If I wanted to keep up with my son I would be riding an XR. I prefer to be closer to the ground so I won't get shortlegged. The TW puts me down where I like to ride and I am not trying to keep up with anyone.

    I fixed it for you!

    $2400 seems like a very reasonable price for this I think you could fetch a bit more (like $2600 - $2700) as Socal TW prices are through the roof lately

    Paid $1600 for mine in Arkansas 3000 miles Really was looking for A XL250 but the price was right and I am not getting younger ..Should put plates on my other dirt bikes but have other things that need done first . Tw is way down on the list but it is ready to go when I am ready to go.

    You might find a Trade . Everybody Happy

    Exactly!! I'm slow and old, he'll always outride me no matter what I'm riding.

    I am actually looking for an XR400, done some research and seems like the right bike for me. If I was to go cruise alone and explore, the TW would remain the perfect bike.

    I was afraid to ask that much, because if I decide to sell, I want it to go fairly quick before I change my mind.

    I have a tentative trade going on an XR400, but he wants my bike and $700, I am not thinking that an XR is worth that kind of money
