Man this is a pain in the ***. I've been lookin on craigslist, the forums, everywhere for weeks and just cant seem to find something older, in decent shape, for a good price. I had found an '88 honda 300 4x4 that I was sure I could get for $1000 or less... In Excellent shape!! But when the guy returned my email his reply said "Sold it yesterday."

I Really dont want to spend a whole lot so thats part of the problem! lol.

dang....I'd buy every Honda 300FW I could find for under 500bucks in just "descent" shape...maybe that even needed a rear diff!!!

You'll luck up on something...just kind of a bad time of year to be searchin for a bike.

Well I've found an '02 Sportsman 700 that seems like a good deal.. waiting on another reply from the owner.

I still have not figured out what Im going to do with this 06 700 cat I bought

hmm... too bad you're too far away I might take it off your hands haha!

The dude w/ the polaris must think I'm just another sucker, per his last email, the tires (26" zilla's) we're "very expensive" and his price on the wheeler is firm. I told him I'll pass, that zilla's were the cheapest out there and then told him what I was going to offer cash price, but if his price is firm.. I guess I'll have to pass on the deal. We'll see what he says. I might have made him mad.. haha..

Yep to far away It was for sale on here at one time I keep hearing alot about auctions that you have to have a membership to go to anybody ever tryed this

There's a local auction yard here that has a lot of quads, especially arctic cats (mostly repo's) but they wont let you crank them or ride them before you bid... so, I'm scratching that I think.
