Looking to buy a 700 mile 02 metro or 03 ruckus possible

Postby SCOOTERMAN2011 on Wed Jan 05, 2011 6:16 pm

not a 1st time rider- saw a 2002 metro online- juice color- 700 miles- original owner-owners son stated his father bought for grandkids to ride around yard- guessing owner saw roadtime with it along time ago if it has 700 miles.

i know not to get the derestricted one and heard about crankshaft issue. Stated bike is clean, no broken panels and runs great. still would do fresh oil & coolant .
asking 800/bo which i know is high for age- what do u feel is fare price -figuring it could use new tires after 8 years as it most likely has age cracks

also got a chance at a 03 ruckus under 500 miles but will need a battery, carb cleaned, oil,coolnt, again tires and is priced 900 firm -been garaged and i know this guy and it was not beat on.
