Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place.. wasn't sure where to put it, but others are asking similar things in here, soooo... I'm sussing out a good ol'GSX250 Across for my first bike. It's a Jap import, 99, has just over 51000kms on the clock, is basically scratched to crap, a few random stickers on it (not even covering any damage, just 'there' for looks or something)... But it feels good (engine, brakes, gears) and everything seems 'tight' & in decent condition (physically). Having a pre-purchase check done on it tomorrow so will hear how it is structurally (if there's anything obvious I guess) & mechanically... I'm totally happy with a POS for my first bike, I just don't want to get totally ripped off. I still have my first POS car, 10yrs down the track (though I really don't think that'll happen with bikes for me, TBH ). Likely that once I'm on my Ps, I'll shunt it & get something that I like a lot more.. could be 3 months, could be 9.. *shrug* Now.. 'cheap' L legal bikes are hard to find here in the ACT. How much would you (be honest, no bravado required ) offer or pay for a bike like this?
