The paint work is fugly and the price is too high. I traded an 05 in in 07 with 5K on it for $4300. The bike is 13 years old.

You're paying for the custom paint job, not necessarily the bike

Gads. I bought my 08 for $500 less with 20k less miles. Plus I couldn't handle that creepy face looking up at me when I'm riding yikes!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If it were me, I would give him $1000 and tear it down for repainting as soon as I got it home...

I'm with everyone else. If you like the paint job, look around and you can probably get an '01 for more like $2,500 and paint it yourself for about $500, putting you with another $1,000 in your pocket for other extras. IMHO half the fun is buying stock and customizing it yourself.

If that's a artist paint job and not a decal job it probably cost a few thousand dollars. I personally don't like it but if you do you'll be hard pressed to find another looks a lot like a one of a kind.

Don't be thrown off by the $4000 firm if you really want it make an offer he can only say yes, no, or make a counter offer.

I like this one a lot better! You seem to be drawn to custom art, and this one is certainly more tolerable, a newer bike, and still saving yourself some $$$. :wayhappy:

For me, that "custom paint job" knocks what I'd offer for the bike DOWN about $1500, since that's what it would cost to get the bike repainted! I hate custom paint jobs, and that one is particularly ugly! I wonder sometimes if people who paint their bikes like that are mentally stable. I'm serious.



Besides the paint, it's a 13 year old, 800cc bike, and you can buy nicer ones (that you DON'T have to repaint) for a lot less than that one!


Here's a few I found in my area:

2007 C50T with only 9,500 miles for $4400

2008 C50T, $5500:

Uucccggh! I wouldn't take that bike for half that price. I say go for a bike like the ones diehard posted. If you're willing to pay that kind of money, get bike with a nice fairng or a lot of OEM aftermarket parts or something. Don't pay mpre for someone elses' "custom paint job".
