Is this bike worth the buy?

Tags: bike  worth  buy  

I found a 1982 Yamaha st 550 that's street legal for sale for $700. The only issue the guy mentioned was something with the carb. I know how to ride, I've done it since I could walk, but I hardly know a thing about bike engines. I really want to b

Answers:

the bike need new carb.

The only way I'd buy a 36 year old motorcycle would be if it were in mint condition. If I were you, I wouldn't pay more than $100.

Don’t get a bike with issues right off the bat. Especially if you don’t know exactly what’s wrong or how to fix.

Not worth the risk.
You can spend a little more and get a bike without issues.

No way, dude. You're money's better spent on a book about working on bikes and some basic tools. This vid's kinda long, but the chick's pretty hot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQ2pO4jc...

If it does not start and run, you do not buy. If it starts and runs, you pay a bike mechanic to look at the bike.

Do you mean a XT 550?

PS- If a XT 550 you will need to make sure you can still reg the bike in your area, some places have outlawed 2 strokes unless you are the original owner.

If the bike doesn't run, I would stay away from it. Especially for that much. You can get something much newer that runs for seven hundred.

Don't go by what "the guy mentioned". If you are more or less clueless about bikes and can't properly assess its condition yourself, pay a qualified shop to give it a once over and you can either decline to buy it, pay the price, or negotiate based upon what the shop finds wrong. That's what an intelligent lad would do. Unless you have $700 to waste and it means nothing to you a stupid person would buy it without checking it out and hope the guy isn't lying.
