What's a good price for this Sherco?

http://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/mcy/2878865552.html

I haven't come *close* to getting what I think my bikes are worth, when selling in this economy.

Is this Sherco worth anything near $5,000?

A brand new econo Gas Gas is @ $5500, this bike may be in great condition but not worth $5K. Maybe $3500 but you can do pretty well buying a newer and used bike for $5K.

A friend and I were looking at that bike, took a while to notice it is a 4 stroke.
I don't have any idea what it is worth. 4 stroke Montesa would be more than that. imho.

I paid $3200 for mine last season.

Four stroke trials bikes require a little different technique that the two strokes, as they use a light flywheel to keep the throttle response snappy. Now that I've figured out how to ride it, I'm not sure I could go back.

Here in the UK you would struggle to get 1000 for a 320 Sherco.

i think it's a great price.. someone mentioned an economy gasgas, good luck finding one.. and good luck with the transmission once you do.. been there done that one.

remember in economy class when they mentioned supply and demand... good luck finding another thats a 4t and setup like that anywhere in the United States. I know first hand that the seat for that bike is not attainable in the US, and Hebo stopped making the Aux tanks for the front. So I really dont think you could ever setup a bike like that again, especially in the US for that kind of money. I'd be all over it if I had the $, but settled for a clean 02 instead.

Sounds like a deal to me.

I'm not sure the seat and tank go with the bike. The ad says they are 'available'. Not necessarily included.

Is the seller referring to that hokey XR50 ripoff seat stuck down in the frame valley and the aux tank? Or does he have the actual long ride seat and tank made for that model? I agree that if he's got the real stuff the price is more accurate. I wouldn't pay more for that $100 worth of tack-on junk.

I WOULD pay it for the real stuff designed for the bike, like this Beta:
