    Im looking at getting a 96 CBR600 F3 thats on the market down here. It'll be my first bike. 8k miles, perfect condition rd/wht/blk color, matched seat, yosi exhaust and a tank bag. How much would you pay for this?

    Im thinking 3500, but the guy is selling it for 4gs and that seems a bit high for me. Help me out bike crew...

    IMO 4 G's is to much for a 10 year old bike, even $3500 is a bit high but doable if its in pristine shape.

    Honda keep more value, but 4000$ is way too much

    even 3500.

    for not even 3500 you can get a Yamaha R6 first gen where you'll have way more of a sportbike than a F2!

    2500 or walk... besides, it probably has well over 8k miles on it as the speedo cable was probably unhooked for 20k miles.

    +1, is it a young guy selling it? if so just walk away if he seems like a jackass, he fucked that bike up/ stunted

    and 4k is way too high, you can get an f4i for that much, be patient and youll find another bike

    Yes, but you don't want something like an R6 as a first bike.
