Used Suzuki GS500E

  1. Hi,

    A friend of mine has a 86/87 GS500 with about 30,000ks on the clock, it looks and rides quite well and he wants $3,800 for it.

    Any thoughts?
  2. Seems expensive for its age, if not for the distnce travelled. It'd want to be in very good condition. Very low ks for a 22 yr old bike.
  3. He's dreaming for 3.8k,

    You can pick up a 2000 onwards one with similar K's or less for around 3.5.
  4. Some friend ! Is he trying to rip you off ?

    Recently sold a GS500F, with 15mths factory warranty remaining on it, total of 1700km in gleaming, pristine condition for $7,400, a 2008 model (Black/Silver). It was in a condition better than the dealer whom I purchased it from. This, just one example, for you.

    If your friend doesn't change his tact and offer a more reasonable price, in the order of 2k (max), then I'd wander off elsewhere in search of a realistic deal.

    There are many faired/naked bikes of this type all over the place. You'd easily be able to find one with under 15k ODO, 2000+ Model for around 4k ! These are popular bikes.

    I say keep the friendship, if there is one solid enough worth keeping, and walk.
  5. lol u can have my 04 gs for almost half that.
  6. Thanks everyone. Never mix business & pleasure eh? :LOL:
