My buddy wants me to sell off some of his shtuff so he can buy some property adjacent to his cabin up north before some other a$$hole scoops it up. Hows $1600 an acre sound? Pretty cheap even for the previously thriving state of Michigan.

Here it is:

2003 Kubota B7800 with 250 hours. Front bucket & rear PTO with drag blade $13,000

2003 KTM400 EXC punched to a 450. Mike Lafferty's race bike in 2004 $2800

1997 Double Axle open utility trailer with nice rear gate set up, just repainted in the spring with new tires and rims. $1800

1973 Yamaha 175 - Cherry - stored inside, rides and runs great $1300

2003 Venture bunk single axle pontoon trailer - Like new $1800


How do these prices sound???? Anyone interested?

More to follow once I can get some pictures from his place up north of here.

on those that I am somewhat familar with, appears to be a bit on the high side (not ridiculous though) but not a bad starting price.

Kubota ~$11-12K (I deal used tractors, trailers, etc. as a hobby, for me rough wholesale price ~$8.5-9.5K but that would be for me to clean up (including change all fluids) & resell).

I just sold a '02 KTM 520EXC (w/fresh professional rebuild to 540 kit only 3 hours on engine) & '04 KTM 525EXC (~55 hours) in March/April '11 for $1900 & $2400 repectfully. I had both on the market for about a year collecting dust in the garage not really trying to sell at $2600 & $3000 without many lookers.

double axle utility trailer depends on lenght (14', 16', 18', 20', etc.), axles (5, 6 or 8 lug) weight rating, brakes (none, one or both axles), floor condition (regular or treated lumber) ... I just bought a 16' used tandem 3500# axle, no brakes, needing a floor for $800 but worth $1100 with new floor.

'73 Yamaha all depends on someone looking for that vintage (also need to know if it is the street version or the DT aka enduro version).

no clue on the pontoon trailer.

hope that helps some on reasonable recent pricing.

Thanks!!

The trailer is a 20 foot with and new floor and new tires.

The KTM is a wishful price because he paid $4000 for it and almost never rode it.

The Kubota, thanks !!

does the trailer have brakes on one or both axles? and what weight rating are the axles (3500 (5 or 6 lug), 5000 (6 lug), 6000 (8 lug leaf spring), 7000 (8 lug torsion))?

I can relate to the KTM. I bought the '04 525 for $4K with about 7-8 hours on it May '05 while waiting on first back surgery ... 2 back surgeries later with recurring nerve issues down both legs, I opted to sell both since I hadn't ridden either much. Not many people want that old of a bike as a race bike, so best to find someone wanting to convert to a dual sport (hope he has the title!!!)... with title can be worth as much as $500 more for someone to convert!

3500# 5 lug, brakes on one axle only...

KTM is currently plated in Michigan. I had the same bike except 2004 loaded with EE stuff. We used to tear up the backroads with those. He bought from Lafferty's mechanic in Indian River Michigan. He had a fleet of KTM's in that garage....

Yamaha is a DT btw...

Thanks -

20 foot with good floor, 3500# axles with brakes on one, rear gate (as opposed to dual ramps), by chance does it have the cast 2" bulldog hitch? starting price around $1800 not bad, more realistic around $1300-1400 ... at least around here anyway.

if the KTM is already plated in his name (with title) & set up as a dual sport, $2300-2600 would be a good buy in these parts, so starting around $2800 (unless he needs to sell quick) really isn't all that far off base. The main reason mine were as low as they were is I only had MCO (Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin) thinking that was the title when buying, then not able to track down previous owner upon my selling ...

had a friend with a '73 DT 175 when I was in high school. would be a sweet old school bike around town (not at highway speeds).
