kx500 whats it worth

a family friend's husband passed away a few years ago and she wants to get rid of his old bike. She sent over pics and asked me to help her get rid of it

its a street legal kx500......not sure of the year yet, and I think the title is lost.....

I dont know anything about the history, service, or overall condition yet.....but.....like all bikes left in a garage "it ran when it was parked a few years ago"

assuming it only needs the carb cleaned, air filter, and an oil change to get it running OK again......Whats this thing worth?
Thanks in advance

$2000 with a title, $1500 without. Maybe a bit more if it is running well.

Exactly what I was thinking.

advertised for sale in a desert region like AZ, a better market than Colorado...that's a $2800 bike if the title can be located (IMO)


KX500's are reliable as a brick, and a plated one would be worth good coin in the right place.

Exactly. AZ or SoCal would be a much easier sale.

I sold a plated one with a ton of aftermarket stuff on it a couple years ago for $1900... It was a lot cleaner than the one pictured so IMO $2800 would really be pushing it.

Doing a couple of quick searches brought up a few running ones between $2000 and $2500. Seems like $1500 is about right with no title and not running.
