Used GS500

Darn budget, and to make it worst, the Taxes ware coming... :cry:

I've been trying to find a used bike for this year's riding period. Looks like my budget will be pretty tight, maybe around $2000 Cdn (about $1500 US). Do you people think I can get a reasonable bike for that amount? More into the standard type (like a GS500) preferably. The intent would be to use it a year, maintain it properly, maybe even paint it to make it more attractive (read more easy to resell) and then sell it the year after for the same amount (if not more). Sounds liek a good plan? Can it be done? Worth it? Or should I just forget about it for another year?

totally agree with nut, i would never buy a bike with non factory paintwork

Don't know how relevant this article is (see link) but it may be of some interest. Naturally prices are all AUD, and the bike in question is a little different, but as for buying 2nd hand there is a message in there somewhere - you'll spend more on it after you buy it...
