Good news i just got back from the future and you totally did it, you got it cheap. Come on man ask how to fix it or show us a photo. Nobody can tell anything with out seeing it or knowing the dude your buying it from. If he's hurting for money he will see it for that much. Bring cash and have it on you if you want it. By the way nice first post.

A fellow Cultist already did a good write up about buying here:

Like everyone is saying, bring the dough and throw the number out there. If he says no, walk away. If you don't hear back in a day or two and you really want it, call him back and do the back and forth thing. If it's been listed a while, you should have no problem. Good Luck.

I sold a bike for $500 less than my minimum "Firm" price because I saw a big ass wad of cash and the buyer started pointing out shit. Then I looked at the big ass wad of cash again and sold the bike.

So take a wad of crisp new $10's and $20's

you should be able too, you can tell by the way they word their ad too. sounds like he just rode the shit out of it. find out what he did to store it? If he just parked it then you know you've got work to do. Also he doesn't have room for it or time to ride so a wad of bills will probably make his eyes widen. I say offer $1000 then work up from there. If it were me I'd start at $850 but I learned in the markets of London haha!
