Craigslist find of the day. New 2006 rm250 never started. The price is outrageous but still cool to see one that hasn't been touched.

It didn't. That PC pipe also looks like it has water spots all over it. The white stickers are also faded but that could be the way he stored it. No idea why he added the PC pipe. Maybe to make it more authentic to Carmichael's real bike?

8k LOL what’s this guy smoking

I could see Pastrana buying it, he's got to be running out of RMs by now. Not 8k, but it's worth 6 or 7 to someone.

I remember these sold as left overs for 35-4500 new

The stock pipe works better too. Best pipe for it.

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!

I could see it worth 6-7k to quite a few people. You can get 4 out of a high hour "rebuilt" model. Don't see why a collector wouldn't pay a good amount for it

Deal! Would you take a novelty cheque? I could meet you halfway.

I've seen that; it's been up since Spring afaik.

No one will touch that for anything above $5000 imo.

And people say 2 strokes need to come back? No one will pay $$ for 2 strokes. Thats why yamaha doesn't invest in an all new bike

Would you pay 8k for a 2006 RMZ250?

I wouldn't pay $600 for that bike in "great" condition.

Because a large portion of two-stroke folks are stuck in the mid-90s (and earlier). wink

A collector preium isn't a complex concept. In fact it isnt a concept of its own. Its just a vulgar example of supply and demand.

None of you would even care if you truly believed that no one in the world would spend 8k on this bike. But everyone of you know it's possible. Thats the part where your emotions make you loose perspective. All that has to happen to make that motorcycle worth 8k is for someone to pay 8k for it. You cannot argue against that. You can only say its not worth 8k to you. And who are you? Nobody in this story...and thats the point, this motorcycle isnt for you.


I collect Hondas, but if I wanted this bike I'd pay 6k for it. That doesnt mean anything. Doesnt mean its worth a dollar over 2 grand, or that it isn't worth 10 grand. The price of collectibles represents the desire to own, not some arbitrary value based on msrp or speculative analysis. Even comparable sales are only a general guide. Collecting isnt about value. Its about posession. Value is sometimes the last thing I think about when aquiring the things I desire. it's not entirely rational, nor should it be. You would think people who ride dangerous motorcycles would somewhat understand that irrationality.

Am I the only one who isn't seeing vent spews on the tires? There's no way this bike was "never ridden". The tires aren't new.

Can't tell.

But I do know this: if you are looking to sell a vehicle as a rare collector's item, at the very highest premium the market will allow, thousands over what it cost new -- then you better bring more than a six word ad with one low resolution photo to document and advertise it.
