Might as well hear from the least wise (me) first. A picture is worth a thousand words. Plus they're fun to look at.

I see you are in Edmonton. Good luck with your purchase. I like the 1999 you have linked. I would try to find something with a little less mileage for about the same price but pickin's are slim.

Not a lot of miles/kilometers on those bikes for their age. I would go for the 01 myself.

I'd go with the '01. Doohickey done, and the farkles are more functional. I would negotiate the price down about 20%, though.

I'm still leaning toward the 99. It has quite a few upgrades too , including Doo, and from the pictures looks to be in a little better shape but ... Also the 2001 lists as firm on price whereas the 99 may have a little room.

Let us know what you bring home.

Well I was stood up by one seller and the other bike was the 99 and great. But while I was trying to see the other one someone else came by and left a deposit and today picked it up......back to looking.

It's like shopping at Costco. If you want it, then find it, BUY it!! I wouldn't go wasting my time with a seller that stands me up.
