Pls consider removing this sentence from your CL add "No low baller's if you don't have the money then don't waist yours and my time." while we all agree with what you are saying this wording turns off at least 3 of the 4 personality types. Also remove the tags (they are not necessary on a TW and they trigger people to flag your ad) Lastly, in your title or header add TW 200 (with the space between) in addition to the TW200 you already have and people searching for TW's will find you either way. I might try a title like this "Yamaha TW200 Trailway Excellent Condition Loaded With Extras 1988 TW 200"
People want to see the year in the title because if they are looking for a newer bike and they click on the ad and see it's older they may flag it because it annoys them but many buyers are looking for good older models especially with the goodies your bike has so stating the year in the title won't hurt you
I'm not criticizing your add but I have been selling TW's on CL for about 13 years with pretty good luck
I sell later model TW's (2005 and newer) but people always ask for decent older, lower cost bikes so I know your bike is a great deal
PS re tags - if you want to use some tags like "enduro" etc write them into the body of your add, example "very fun and reliable TW-200 enduro" "great on off road bike" or "street legal off road enduro" this also works in the 3rd variation TW-200 which a few people search for but not that many
Good luck with the sale!
Thanks for the suggestions fellows i will edit. Ive just had a lot of problems selling stuff in the past
with people coming over and not having any money to buy anything and it's just something i don't want to
deal with. Not for just 1500. But i do appreciate your help so thanks again. And as for your comment
Fort payne old Kawasaki's hold a place in my heart from my childhood thats what ive wanted for along time
they just don't go up for sale much anymore so i settled on the trailway cause it had what i thought
was everything i wanted. But the damn thing is too slow. Around here everyone drive's at least 65 mph
and i live right off of two interstates where the traffic flows at 75mph so for me to go somewhere i need
a bike that will hold its own Not a slow dirt bike. The KZ had problems not getting enough oil to the top
of the head until 1977 they used the same method as the trail way does with the oil port going through the
head. Well starting with the 78 model they started using an external oil pipe that solved all of those
problems and they are known for being a bullet proof engine. That will cruise comfortably at interstate
speeds. I've been working on bikes for 25 years and i prefer the older classics over anything new. Hell i have
the money right now to go buy a few brand new bikes from the dealership but i don't want too. I just want to
sale the TW to use that money to restore my old Dinosaur.
Never meet anybody at your house. simply tell them "my place is tough to find but I'll meet you right off the freeway and show you the way" this makes it sound like you are doing them a favor but your really saying if you don't show up on time or you don't call me I'm going on with my day.
