WR500ZD value
« on: September 24, 2017, 07:50:47 PM »
Hi all

I have the opportunity to buy a complete (but not running) WR500ZD. It's had regular use, but looks well maintained with some mods like an aftermarket pipe among other things. It's been sitting for at least a year, and has the right engine cover removed for some reason. It does look in very good overall condition, but I'm not sure what it would be worth. I realise pics would help, but don't have any yet.

Sorry for the 'how long is a piece of string' like question. Just looking for an idea of what people would be prepared to pay not knowing the condition of the engine.

Cheers
Jamie

About a grand, but not sure if he will increase the price if I show interest.

  What country are you in ?


     If it's complete and tidy like you say it is .. it's a bargain at $1k

    The tank alone in good condition is worth $450-550 US


      BUY IT

Thanks Muzz. I'm in Australia.

It's apparently been a well loved bike, and enjoyed regularly. Just didn't know if I'd be wasting my time/money if the engine/gearbox was cactus. They look like a cracker of a bike, and I'd like to get it going if possible.

Cheers
Jamie

 I'm not sure of the value of them in oz , and depends what's up with the engine , even so you could

   Prob go to $1500 and still be happy , parts are available (except tank )
 Although they are called "WR" the bottom end is YZ490
 UFO do good plastics kits etc

  This thread might help a little
