    • Yeah, I saw that.  Almost posted this in your thread, but didn't want to hijack your post.
    • @jeepwm69 not sure if u seen the one I went to look at but I’m glad I didn’t buy it. Worse than he said as well. I was in same boat.. he gave me different address than where I ended up!
    • Late last week an 05-06 500 popped up about 2 hours away.  Kid had it listed at $1650 OBO.  Way too high, but said he was negotiable.    I was second in line, first guy bought it.    Then yesterday I see it relisted as a part out.  Had a straight front bumper and racks, and good green fenders with no snorkel holes.  I call the guy and ask about quite a few parts (fenders, bumper, knuckles, CV's, front rack, 12" OEM wheels) and he says "Want to buy the whole thing?  $1K"   I headed out to get it, and realize that the FB location that was listed was not the address the guy sent, so I went from  75ish min drive, to a 130 min drive.  Was 20 mins from the house before I realized that, so I pushed on.   Got there, and was in a hurry (I know, I know, stupid) as I was supposed to be home and cleaned up to go to dinner with the family at 5:30, so I have it a quick glance, and rolled it on the trailer.   This morning I gave it a better look.  Hacked up wiring harness, but worse, the right upper a-arm mount has some bubba welding job on it.    Guess this one will be a parts bike.  I certainly won't try to build one on a frame that looks like this.    That's one of those "did I really just drive two hours each way and then overpay for THAT?"   Oh well, win some, lose some.

Isn't it the 350 Foreman that the one way is discontinued on?   Edited to add, guess yall figured all of this out without me, and I should have read the rest of the thread before i posted that.  LOL
    • I do worry about parts availability at some point...I treat my old 300 pretty easy..no mudding, no hard riding..pulls a small utility trailer are times and occassionally a larger landscape trailer full of limbs etc...we don't have hills here, so trail riding is flat and easy.   for now, I've got an old Honda..built to run..and I hope it will last me the next 3-5 years at which point I'll be just old enough that I should consider giving it to the kids anyway.
