Just posted on our local moto classifieds page in Perth, Australia (not mine). Never started 2007 CR250. Be interesting to see what it goes for. It picked up traction very quickly for obvious reasons.

Wonder how many bikes like this are still around? (Crate/never started older 2 strokes).

Given this is a US site, an international buy would be difficult but not impossible for a keen enthusiast.

I discussed this with a group of buddies - how much would you pay for this bike. 15-20k was the general consensus

Is the clutch cover original or cerakoted ? Very nice bike.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Judging by the 10-15k AUD on old 500's here in Perth and 5-8k on well used 07 125's & 250's. I reckon 12-15k for a collector is about right.

There are a few adverts on Gumtree willing to pay 15-20k for never ran 500's which are more desirable.

My 07 250 has less than 20 hours from new and is in the process of being put back together. (Stripped into cases when I moved to Australia). I reckon to the right buyer that would be worth 8-10k.

$20k? Why? I'd love to hear a rational thought process.

Someone has too much cash to burn. Why spend more on a 12 year old bike than one you can buy new today?

I should've sold my bike in WA instead. 06 went for $3200 about a month ago. To be fair its about what i bought it for 10 years ago but i just don't see how they're worth that much.

I'm still struggling to get my head around 1996 model bikes being ridden in vintage events. I was a 10 year old kid getting dragged around to proper vintage races in 1996 when those were state of the art brand new machines, now to see those bikes in the same category as the twin shockers i used to watch is mindblowing to me. Where has time gone.

I think about $13k would pull it up...

9/30/2019 4:15 AM

I’m sorry, but if I’m buying a bike, it damn well is going to get ridden. Based on that fact alone, no way would I pay crazy money for something that will look used in a matter of hours. I wouldn’t pay any more for it than I would for a 2019 YZ250.

Then you clearly aren't the target market

In Australia a 2019 YZ250 is 10.5k - 11k at the dealers

Ok. What is the "target market"? With all respect, the target market is people willing and able to pay twice the original price of a bike that is at the most average in performance and availability and 17 years old with the
accompanying technology? Great condition for sure but that aside, why? Yes, I know there are circles of people in
the $10k 1981 Maico 490 segment. Again, what is the "target market"? You mentioned it, you should be able to explain it.
Thanks.

target market is collectors/museum that will never start the bike, pretty obvious i think

I paid 3200$ for my -06 with 30 hours on it since new, and i would do it again instead of buying a metal mulisha edition for 2200$ and dumping a grand on it when you find out what that wheelie boy has/hasnt done to it.

So, you are looking for a collector or museum that is willing to overpay for something they can never use except
to look at.

So, why do they have to overpay?

So, your market really, is to find someone willing to overpay?

I guess that is simple, obvious...really.

You can't buy it new. If they didn't have the foresight to buy one in 2007, they're getting rarer and rarer to find now. Would I pay that? No fucking way. Would a rich person who wants to preserve Honda's final 2 stroke? That's up to them.

Supply and demand. Why is a 69 copo camaro worth half a mill now when it was 9k new?

Just because you dont "get it" or arent interested and its worthless to you, doesnt mean thats the end of it. You arent the market. That's fine. Buy a bike to ride thats common and depreciates and move on...

I originally bought some extra two strokes as I am not a four stroke fan aside from my dual sport and adventure bikes. Didn't get them to make money someday. Reality is parts are and will continue to be difficult to get to rebuild them. Part numbers are dropped everyday. So I sold off three of my never fired KX's. And bought new Husky two strokes. They blend in well with my other bikes, KDX and KX500s. Still have one new KX500 and am going to keep it.
