fair price is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I'm sure there are several people here though, that would like to see a picture or three.

No appraisals - no "how much is it worth" etc

Cant do this.....

IT is worth what someone is willing to pay for it.. You cant come on here asking values of "what is it worth". Your thread will most likely get deleted...?

Well I for one am willing to inform a owner of the value of THEIR vehicle. Not to mislead them from a greed or need aspect. You go to a Jeweler for a appraisal for your diamonds because that is something that can vary by knowing the Carrot,Cut,Color all have effect on the value.
Same thing applies here. YES people do take advantage of information supplied but to flatly say no pricing is not the attitude we should have here. This is not the back door to Pawn Stars we are supposed to be here to promote new people to bring out their mini bikes and trikes scooters and go Karts for us to help and not hinder the effort.
Ask me about Tri-Sports and yes I do know what they are worth and nothing has to do with my desire to sent an owner away scolded for asking. This owner started out by saying he was new to this.

First off flem : Welcome to the OMB there are a lot of people here that like Trikes and what is most helpful is pictures of what you have and pictures of both sides and pictures of the engine and drive system even the bottom view is helpful. I was a Tri-Sport dealer back in 1972 through 1974 and have owned a lot of them.

Guy I purchased my Bonanzas from has some brand of little trike, it has a rear center bar to keep it from flipping over might have to go take another look at it. He is one of those everything is for sale....
