Bike is sold. 2005 RC51 for sale, Arizona, $6,300

Bike is sold.

Hi guys, just trying to save time and if it's not against the rules will post my craigslist ad. This bike will only be for sale as long as the other bike I'm looking to buy is. Shock has been sold as well as the stock cans. Ad updated.

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/nph/m...798741763.html

I checked the rules and didn't see that I couldn't post a link to Craiglist.

Thx! I'll be around quite a while and remain subscribed to some of the forums. This may not all go through in time anyway.

Joe, I'm finding in the Facebook group that answering a question like that to RC51 fans does me no good.

Having said that, if you're really curious PM me.

My God. Selling a bike locally is ... infuriating. Nothing but low-ballers, wheeler dealers, tire kickers and bike flippers. I guess the reality is I'm fairly new to selling cars and bikes and wasn't expecting this. I'm pretty much trying to scare away nearly everyone but a passionate RC buyer now with some pretty cynical text in my ad.

You know, when I bought this exact bike, I knew I wanted only a black RC51 and when I saw it locally I loved it. I did, one time, tell him (and it was true) that $6,000 was beyond my budget and asked if he could come down a couple hundred. He didn't, that was that. I came back with 6 grand and didn't regret it.

I just went and looked at another bike recently. I asked if he'd delist it and if so, not only would I give him a non-refundable deposit, I'd give him $100 MORE than he was asking. I didn't walk around his bike with a magnifying glass for 90 minutes trying to find every flaw to talk him down in price. This guy was so cool (normal?) that he refused the extra $100. Just nice people being nice. WTF.

Guy was selling bike, I look at bike and ask if it's worth the price, it is. I'll buy it. Where the F are more people like me in the world? Everybody's got to make a deal, be a wheeler dealer player baller. FFS.

It's a given that you may deal with every scammer. gap-toothed, bottom feeding idiot when selling on Craigs list. Took me almost a year to sell my CBR600 on there. But I eventually got my price and sold to a normal human being. When I listed some CBR900 parts I had I must have received a half dozens calls asking how to fix the bike, what were the colors schemes, pretty much every thing but "hey I want to buy your 94 gas tank." Good luck dude, bike looks good and looks to be in the right price range.

I think there's a country music song that declares, "God is great, beer is good and people are crazy."

You've got a front row seat for the "people are crazy part." GLWS and hang in there....because you know some snotty Millennial is going to ask you, "Is it fast?"

LOL guys.

Also, things might get easier. I've sold the shock and have lowered the price. People don't pay much for mods anyway.
