Just for clarification (in USA, at least) Before 2002 gasgas produced the bike named "TXT" In 2002, they then introduced the "TXT PRO"... Pro designated the new engine, and other weight savings design. But, they still produced (or imported, as it were) the "TXT" as far as 2003 maybe even 2004. I have a friend that had the 03 "plain TXT" 280.

I have had several friends that have the 02 "TXT PRO," aka again commonly refered to or called by just "{year}" & "PRO." FWIW, in 03, there was a big change in the seat plastics, which is also the airbox, and it was a retrofit update, known as 03 airbox update. That is all I "know."

I don't know what it cost back then to get the update, I assume it was free with exchange, but I DON'T know this. I definitely have no idea what it would cost now, I read here or Thumper Talk, where someone found a "new in crate 02 pro, just in the past few months it seems? and bought it, that is what brings to mind about the seat/airbox "update" that most got back in the day.

Most all the bikes I have seen (again 02 pro) have the update, I couldn't tell if I have ever seen the non updated ones. My Buddy "Spinner" from Kansas knows, I don't. So I rely on his knowledge.

Now you know, what I know.

1990-1992 Beta Zero : May be a challenge to find spare parts. Only manufactured for 2-years before replacement with Techno model w/ aluminium engine cases. Relatively heavy compared to 2004 or newer bikes. Magnesium engine case corrosion was common resulting in coolant leaks into the transmission oil. Aluminium case replacement/upgrade (Beta Techno) cost around $450 if still available from the factory in Italy. Cable clutch (not-hydraulic). Weak rear brakes. Upside Down Forks prone to leaking fork seals.

If the above common issues are OK with you and the price is within your budget: The Beta Zero will be lighter than an older twin-shock. A early 90's mono-shock w/ cartridge fork is more capable than damper-rod forks.

Thanks for the update. I can do better, for a few bucks more.
I would really like the 2007 Beta Rev3 250, in Oklahoma, in the "Trials Specific Flea Market" thread. I don't believe it can be registered in Ca. But it's calling me, like a Sirens song.

Mikeysduck -- we bought our used gasgas 280 models 2000 and 2001 for $1200 and $1500, in need of minor work, mid season last year. so if you are patient and keep your eyes open, you can find a more modern generation bike in pretty close to the same price range. I also got my GG80cc for $1,000 in need of very minor work but unless you're a small rider like me, that's probably not the type of bike you're needing!

I've been intrigued by Trials, and would love to find an inexpensive bike to play on. Waddya think about this one? It's just up the road from me.

I'm a little concerned that he says "Fair Condition".

Fair condition seems fair for a 19 year old trials bike.
