As you can see from my user, you can get an idea of what I do. Anyway I've got this deal lined up for this 2009 yz450f tonight. The guy got the bike in trade, he obviously does some trading because there are some junk cars in his picture. Anyway, I know that he is wide open to negotiation and I may be able to score the bike for $1300-$1500 once I start to nitpick. I just wanted to get your opinions on what this could be resold for?
The bike does run and he says it runs well (obviously that could mean anything) off the bat though it is going to need tires, new plastics, grips, bearings, sprockets, brakes, valves replaced or shimmed, then probably a new top end. I can do all this myself. Not sure what the suspension is going to be like but it may need some work too. With all that said in done with time and parts and probably having hopefully only around $2200 into it, do you think this is still worth my time for a potential good flip or solid trade once the bike is up to par? I know everything is all about the FIs now but just kinda want to get a feel for the market. Thanks.
