03 complete

Postby bradf » 02:08 pm Jan 07 2006

I found a complete 03 KX125 with Procircuit forks. It is basicaly just sitting there. It belongs to Bryan Johnson (racing Supercross in CA tonight) who left it here at the Millsaps Training Facility in Cairo, GA. The manager said make an offer and he'll tell Bryan. So what would a good offer be for the front end?

Complete as the whole bike is sitting there, TT, forks, wheel, tire, caliper, rotor, axle, protectors, number plate, fender... Only the handle bars are missing.

Is $500 a decent price for everything? The Procircuit forks are supposed to be better than stock, and the stock were supposed to be great.

Just for comparison, I paid $152 for my '03 forks with gold valves in them. I paid $50 for the triple clamps, and $90 for an '01 wheel (with an '01 axle and a good rotor) . Then I paid $12 for an '03 axle and two sets of spacers (one set is brandy new). so that's like $304 or sumpin, and I still need the guards which I can't find on ebay, never.

Still waiting. The guy that owns the bike (B. Johnson) fell in practice at Anahiem and broke his arm and some ribs so he hasn't been back out to the facility. I'll check back on Friday.

My $.02....

My stuff was about $400. That did NOT include a caliper, for example, and not some of the other stuff you list. The biggest part of that was the forks at $225. More'n most others have paid but I hoped the aftermarket valving in them to be worth something.

Good luck! I'd say $300 is reasonable. Not super-d-duper, not a rip-off either.
