Looking to buy a VX800 Nashville area
« on: June 16, 2015, 11:12:18 AM »
 Am looking for a VX800 in decent condition. I am located in the Nashville TN area but willing to travel up to about 300 miles to purchase. The bike must be in good running condition, no gas tank dents ( don't care about scratches or paint condition too much ), no severe oxidation. I'm not too interested in a major project bike, however I can repair carbs, clutches, brakes, general mechanical. I'd like one that someone took care of, less than 40k miles if possible.
My price range is $1000 - $2000 depending on condition of the bike.

Thanks,
G

Hey G,

It's not in Nashville and a little over 300 miles from you but I found this bike while looking for bikes on Craigslist. (Not my bike)

1991 VX800
7000 miles
http://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/mcy/5083233737.html

FYI, I inquired about it and he immediately sent back $1000 cash and it's sold. Might try for $900 and see what happens.

I'm not to far away if you'd like someone to go look at it before you make a track to Illinois. Shoot me a PM.

Thank you guys for the heads up on the available bikes. I called the gentleman in Chicago, left a VM. Hopefully he might call back. I can be in Chicago as early as Monday ( my wife would kill me if I missed Fathers Day ). My parents live in Wheaton so a trip to Chicago area would be a 2fer.

Dave, Cadillac Mi is about an 11 hour drive for me. I'm not discounting you, just want to see if this Chicago bike is available first. I may still call you.

Thanks again!!!
G

Scored a great bike from Dave Finzel in Michigan. It was a little further than 300 miles but it was worth it. Bike was as described by Dave, extremely good condition and seems to be have been cared for and maintained well. Couldn't have asked for a better deal. Thanks again Dave.

Now to work!
