    This was a killer deal I bought back in October but the gent didn't delete the posting until lately

    He actually talked himself down a grand w/o me even asking him to do so

    I ran over to Bakersfield from Vegas to hand him the cash and he was nice enough to store the setup in his (awesome) shop for about a week

    He also "threw in" a new motorcycle hydraulic lift jack, 3 helmets, a nice wheel chock that came on the trailer I sold right away for $100, several sets of new heavy duty ratchet straps, trailer locks, the custom rear rack I posted pics of in "luggage rack choices" , two other smaller rear racks, a spare tire and mount and more stuff I just can't remember

    I've already made 2 trips from Socal / AZ to Seattle with the trailer

    So that makes some sense of what I have been seeing in the PNW TW200 Craiglist offerings. You and probably others snap up the really low priced offerings quickly then resell them. No problem with that of course but it does explain inflated prices for what really is a super simple and initially inexpensive motorcycle. There are a lot of them around that sit in garages unused until the owner finally decides they are never really going to use it and just wants it out of his garage - like your seller. They get resold then sit in another owners garage for a while then before being sold as a 20 year old bike with less than a thousand miles on the odo, gunked up carb and dry rot tires.

    If I recall from what may have been your resale add that the bikes were used by his daughters to ride but they went off to college and the bikes went unused.

    ^^^^^ Regarding above, I have no problem with anyone "flipping" any merchandise. And when I eventually do buy one I expect it to use it only several times a year, at best, and sell it several years down the road without too many more miles than I bought it with. But as part of a free market if buyers avoided those that are being flipped it would bring down prices for the people who actually want to own one rather than buy/sell with only a financial interest. California bikes can be especially good deals for out of state buyers because if registration isn't paid every year, even if the bike sits unused, then anyone trying to register/license in the future has to pay back registration fees that can add up to hundreds of dollars (if I understand correctly) - I think this is permanently attached to the motorcycle if at any point it is to be registered/licensed in CA.

    In that case I may know those bikes. Were they a father/daughter set?

    Anyone familiar with a practice called "curbstoning". It apparently is illegal, I assume for motorcycles as well as cars.

    Local News | Old scam called curbstoning gets new life on the Web | Seattle Times Newspaper

    besides driving up the price of used vehicles it also robs taxpayers who have to make up for illegally untaxed income either indirectly through reduced government services or directly through higher taxes to maintain services.

    Avoid curbstoners, pay less, get more.
