Whats it worth ?

8 posts in this topic

Looking at a 2006 Suzuki Vinsion 500. It has 200 miles and a winch. This wheeler will be my wifes. I have a 05 700 King and like the ride. How much would the 500 be worth? Just not sure what to offer him. He isnt asking a price, he just said make me a offer. What do you guys think!!

I'd try $2500-$3000. Sounds like it should be in good condition with only 200 miles.

I'd say $4500+ if not $5000. At least that's what they're asking for them in the various classifieds. Not sure if that's what they're getting though.

Dozers latter offer would be the most reasonable as long as the machine hasn't been abused.

Keep in mind that many machines like the Vinson or the Kawi Brute Force were being marked as low as $5200 to move them off the showroom floors.

The Vinson is a good machine, but IMO when you could buy a 650 V-Twin for the same price in late '06, the selling price of the Suzuki goes down atleast another $400 from that, leaving the Vinnie with an actual selling price or value around $4800 new. Tack on 3 years and average depreciation, and you can plan on the $3400.

You have to start low and work your way up to what they will take for it.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
