Default My First Bike....Would you Buy This???

http://clarksville.craigslist.org/mcy/1853397691.html

Bike is 5 hours away from me and has 20k miles on it. He said I could have it for 2500. That seems like a steal. Should I be jumping all over this or should I be concerned with the 20k miles?

I'd buy it for a track bike. Im not big on trusting mechanical things on the street that someone else has thrashed on and worked on. Its a good deal and the best color combo F4i IMO.

Make sure title is clean and it's actually under his name. Try to get all paperwork done before he deploys. Great deal imo.

This. But it seems legit. If there's nothing wrong and he's got all his paperwork in order, it's the steal of the year. You could probably even sell it to a dealer for more than that.
