I spotted a 1997 XR250 for sale a couple of blocks from my house in Columbus this evening. $1600. Looks to be in great shape.

Talked to the owner for a few minutes, he's an older local cop. Anyway, if anyone is in the market for one, I can PM you his phone number.

Did mine for 350. Gotta know where to look.
Having the superior machine is worth it anyway.

Agree, when lacking skills the machine is important!

Anyone ever deal with these guys? I am looking for a nice container to store my camp gear in and these would be perfect. The price is cheaper than what I can go and get something from a big box store and way better quality. http://www.gottagosurplus.com/milita...isville_ky.htm
If anyone knows of a place closer to Bloomington with similar stock/prices or other suggestions I am all ears. I need something no taller than 16 inches tall and the longer the better.

There is a guy on Hwy 50 coming from Bedford,right before 446 that has a bunch of these at the same prices or less.

I believe his name is Ed Scott, about a mile west of the intersection of 446 and US50. It is an individual who buys and sells...

I think I.ll jump in here since I've bought from him too. Sort of a business.
He used to sell cases on the honor system with a drop box for $. He is very reasonable. Also, if you want to decorate your abode exactly like a '60s army barracks, he's your man.
He gets all kinds of stuff.
You cant miss it . It is on the north side of 50 about 200 yards before the 446 junction east of Bedford.

Thanks so much for the info fellas. I just Google mapped the place and sure enough when I drop down to street view there are a bunch of those containers in the picture. I will make a trip down there and see if he has any sizes I can use.
