Time has come for me to move on. Hard for me to put a value on this for I'm biased and have way more money and time into bike and hard for me to put a value on it. I'll start by saying I bought it with the engine in it from a fellow vitard. It's a 2010 Rmz chassis with a 04 Ktm 200sx engine. Current hours are 51. Recent top end with 185lbs of compression. Here's pics and a list of things to follow.

Man I'm not sure what it's actually worth , but damn that is one cool machine! I remember seeing a RMZ build with a KTM 200cc motor in it on here quite a few years back. Wonder if that's the same bike.

It might not sell fast depending on how much you're asking for it , but to the right buyer , you could fetch a pretty penny for it. Especially with all that extra stuff you have. Dang man , you sure you want to sell that thing? Kind of a rare / one of a kind bike.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

You see he has extra motors and so forth?

Wild thought , but maybe sell a lot of that stuff separately , and the seller could make quite a bit more money I would think. I would think he would lose quite a bit selling it all as one big package.

Not the same build he used a 08 frame. I know who your thinking of. I know it's tough that's why I'm asking I'm a realist and I know it's not worth a million dollars but I got a lot just in the ohlins alone

I didnt see that. I skimmed the list pretty good. I was talking more for only the bike. Engines would be an easy $1000 each assuming theyre fresh.

I personally would stick to your guns , and don't give that thing away. Think about selling some of that other stuff separately as well , as you may make quite a bit more by doing that.

I thought about selling stuff separately but I would rather sell it whole to someone that appreciates it. More of a time thing. I have burned three gallons of gas in a year and a half. Work kids multiple sports and rental properties and small businesses that we own run consume all my time. My kids are at that age were it's difficult to just get out and when I do I just don't get the excitement I did. Plus if I got hurt shit I couldn't even imagine. Time for me to be a 50 dad! I was thinking around 5k myself

Do you need the money? If not why not just keep it?

If you have another bike whatever but if that's your only one and it's all paid for you mind as well keep it and ride it the occasional time you have a chance.

Don't think it'll go down much in value.

Pretty awesome bike. Personally I'd keep it.

Easily 3500-4000

9/21/2017 9:01 AM

No I have a ktm150sx also so I will always have that. Don't need the money it's just like a boat watercraft snowmobile. Hard to justify for how much I ride it. I should buy stock in stabil. Plus I live in Michigan so no exactly a yearound thing

From what I've seen take for example the Cr500 conversions.

An 04 service Honda 500 can list and sell for 5K
An 04 250 with a 500 swapped by my professional welding buddy can list for 3K and get zero interest.

The reputation that service Honda carries brings that value. A home built swap scares a lot of people even when done well.

It might be a tough sale.



With that said , it looks like an amazing bike. Those engines are amazing I've ridden them and they are great.. Those chassis from what I read are amazing put that together with the ohlins and wow I can only imagine.

I think 35-4 is going to be the max personally. Maybe list it for 45, and go from there

Keep it, if you don't need the cash. You're not likely to get a number you'll be happy with. I guarantee you would regret selling that thing one day.

Ride it. Take it easy if you are worried about getting hurt. Remember that you could get injured walking your dog. Life's short.

Cool bike. Just pick a price and see what comes out of it, lower it every month until you start getting some interest generated then you know you're kind of in the ball park. Given you're in Michigan I would think your window to sell to the common guy is shrinking...and to that point this isn't going to be a bike that the common guy is going to buy. Good luck!

With a OS tank and hand guards that's a $5k+ bike... Probably a killer woods weapon...

9/21/2017 10:23 AM

Unless you need the money, keep it. Great looking bike and a nice spec!

A Service Honda brand new is close to $10k and used ones range from $4k on up with most being over $6k.

This bike has Ohlins Suspension which by itself is worth a couple grand. Plus it has a very popular motor in it...with back up.

I wouldn't sell that thing for less than $5500

Knowing how meticulous Danny is with his stuff, it's well worth the money. I know he didn't just slap a bunch of parts on this thing. He did his research and built a sweet machine.

Danny - Put it in the bazaar and the other online moto classifieds and wait for the right offer to come around.

Seems you missed my point about the service Honda's.

Under $5,000. I've noticed to move items fast on the used bike market it's $5,000 or less. Once you get over that price you narrow your buyers down very dramatically. Not many average consumers are walking around spending $6,000+ cash, they'd rather finance or buy brand new for $7,000.

Granted your bike is unique and one off which separates it, but again puts it in a unique class of buyers.

I have a bunch of bikes. I don’t need another one, that’s for certain.

That being said, I’m sitting here trying to talk myself out of sending this guy five grand.

|

9/21/2017 12:54 PM

I see 5000 to the right buyer. Clean build. Has a ton of aftermarket goodies. the forks alone are worth a good chunk of change....


I wouldn't give it away if you don't have too!!

I think you are going to have to wait a long time to find just the right buyer to get a high price for it.

A previous poster made a good point on very few people having $5,000 cash vs. going to get a new one that can be financed.

It is an 8 year old frame with a 14 year old motor, so that is not the same as a Service Honda.

One option might be to sell off the fancy parts and SOMEWHAT return it TOWARDS stock. For example, put some standard forks and shock on there and sell the Ohlins by themselves. (same for spare engine parts, fancy wheels, bolts, etc.)

I think if you don't have or want to spend the time selling off parts and lowering the bike price, you will have it for a good while.

Good luck. It is a very nice bike.

Was this that bike built by that guy from Las Vegas?

I distinctly remember lots of photos from LV clubs in that thread haha.

Super cool build.

If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.

9/21/2017 2:31 PM

No the build your thinking of was himself and he knew pastarana buddy. I can't think of his name redneck something his nickname. He moved to vegas and built hot rods I think. Thanks guys got opinions. I think I'll start at 5 and go from there. Not in a rush just getting some insite.

Hubert, everybody's favorite redneck. I never did hear if his setup with the RZR was recovered that was stolen from TN around the time of the Windrock Jamboree.

Very nice and unique bike!

I regret selling every bike I've sold, even if I had to, I always wish I still had this one or that one...

|

9/21/2017 4:30 PM

The good thing is it's an 04 KTM 200 engine, the best of the bunch.
The bad part is that it's an MPS frame conversion.
In saying that, I'd fork out 5K usd no problem at all. Actually, I'm about to get on the blower to let a few mates know about it.
