Those are some good ideas. The bike has 4,000 miles on the odometer. The bike looks to me like it has been used as a trail bike mainly. The windsheild has been cut down and reshaped. Actually, i think the PO took off the front farring and head light, it was barely hanging on. and wires were connected, but were hanging down on front fender. The plastics are scratched up and sun faded. there are no decals on it. The plastic skid plate is shredded and has pieces broken off it. One hand control has lever broke off and grip scuffed up. The mirrors have been removed. The tools are missing. Has the aftermarket plastic fuel tank. The rear shock is blown out. When i test drove it and paid for it the shock was ok. The bike shop mechanic told when i came back, after the weekend, to pick up the bike the shock was blown out and had been leaking all over his shop floor. The dealership did agree to take care of the labor and put $200 towards a new aftermarket shock, i have to pick up the rest of the cost. The The bike just looks as if was stored outside even has rusty chain. It seems to run fine and all lights and signals work. Its kind of like what i was looking for in an older model for the farm. Its a 2007 and just isnt as "pretty" as i would imagine a 2007. i paid $3,200 + tax, $250 for the shock. I'm in Illinois.
