Usflag 2003 Honda Cr85 Price?

     

Hey guys! I am new to the forums, and I thought this question would be a good first post. (I am 15 by the way.) I am looking for a 85cc two stroke bike. On craigslist I found a 2003 Honda Cr85r. (Small Wheel.) I am VERY interested in it. But, he is asking $1,800obo for it. It appears to be in perfect shape, EXTREMELY CLEAN, and he says it's been very well maintained. He says he wants to sell or trade it for a nice car. However, there is NO WAY I will pay $1,800 for it. I also found another 2003 Cr85r. The other one is only $900. It appears to be nice, but not nearly as perfect as the $1,800 one. But, the $900 one is a 3 hour drive there, and a 3 hour drive back, which is a big hassle. I still have to sell my bike and have leftover money for Mx gear, like boots, pants, and a jersey. If the $1,800 one is a flawless bike, with low hours, little to no scratches, and pretty much a brand new bike, what is a reasonable price to talk him down to? Thanks!

If the bike is in excellent condition, $1100 is a fair offer. If you are patient, there will be newer bikes to come along for less money.

If I were you I would wait and keep searching... Anyone can throw new plastics on a bike clean it up and say perfect condition, very well maintained, low hour's. Doesn't mean you should believe them and say okay! Not sure where you do your searching but I use "bikefinds.com" to find local bikes in my area. Good Luck & WELCOME!

i say keep looking dont rush into it . maybe find some one whos know s about bike s to help u out. just because it looks clean dose not mean it runs well soap can do wonders. for something that small 1800 not worth it .like it was said offer 1100 not much over that.

I just bought a clean 04 Expert for $850. If you're not planning on racing and/or you're not a fast rider I would look at yellow and green options that have a power valve over the red and blue bikes that don't.

Actually the reason I wanted a two stroke in the first place was so eventually, I could go fast and do big jumps. Lol! Of course, it will be a while before I can even think about it, but I would like to start racing sometime within a few years; course I'll need a bigger bike by then. I have a Honda now, and have done my research, and found that the Cr's and Yz's are better for aggressive riders and can take a lot more punishment than the Rm's and Kx's. Since I read so many things along those lines, and me and my Dad have always had great luck with Honda's, that's why my first choice is a Cr. If I could find one, I'd get a KTM, but they're all WAY out of my price range, and I read they need a lot more maintenance and money because their higher quality parts don't last as long.

I wouldn't pay any more than $1,400 for a 2-stroke 85...
