**Bought a Super Sherpa** Though, still interested in a TW if it's a really good deal.
Hey all, I'm hunting for a TW200, XT225/250, Super Sherpa, etc etc. Basically a small dual sport for my girlfriend. She's taking MSF in a couple weeks, and I want her to have a bike waiting. I don't care what year, I just want a running bike for cheap! So, if you're close to me, have a decently price bike, I've got cash in hand. Let me know, thanks.

I'm sure that's $3200, huh? Yeah, it's out of my price range. I'm maxing out around $2k unfortunately. Bills and some such. Though it is a good deal for anyone who wants it, nice amount of farkles.
Still looking folks! I've literally walked through 3 barns in the last week to look at "mid-90s" "great condition" "running" TW200s. All of them have been 1987 models, rusted tanks. One had carb issues, one had what I'm guessing is a CDI issue, and the other just wouldn't start. None of them had their oil changed in the last 10 years, fuel probably as long. All needed new rubber, chains, sprockets. All the owners wanted over $1000. I laughed, offered $500-700 based on condition, and walked away.
Probably to far for you and it was posted 24 Feb. Still up though.1993, 9,000 miles, $1,600, Nampa, Idaho.
93 Yamaha TW200
There are others available too, but higher than what you want.
Got my tank from a forum member few years back. It's a mid 1980's XT600. I sure do like the extra range in-between fill up's.
Then I found a '96 that looks terrific for 1.8 should I just go for it? 4k miles and a cycle rack.
Think I'll need to hunt for that xt600 tank. Looks smoother than the xt225s.
Honestly $1,800 probably ain't bad all things considered. Nice lower miles, so lots of life left in. Cycle Rack = Bonus!
I really love the looks of the XT225 tanks, but even my XT600 is larger at about 2.9 gal. XT600 was offered so I accepted, but if I were looking for a different tank now, I'd be looking for a Clark XT350 tank or similar which holds about 4 gal. Lots of options of different tanks, all have some issues of fit or modification to fit. You'll figure out what your needs are once you get one!
