2004 Suzuki Savage

Today a guy at work offered to sell me his 2004 Suzuki savage 650 For a price I can't pass up. He's one of those guys that buys stuff and then sells at a big loss when money gets tight. Anyway I think I am going to go ahead and get it to play with for a few weeks and then sell it for a small profit. Anyone want a baby cruiser? It feels completely tiny to me. I haven't ridden it yet but I will probably get it tomorrow. If I don't sell it almost immediately I may look into making it a trike for the wife. So does anyone have any idea what it should be worth? Its only got 3200 milers on it and is in perfect condition.

The Suzuki Savage (later called the S40) is a decent little starter-cruiser. Check any of the craigslist search engines that cover a wide geographical area to find the asking prices, and do your own estimate of what they'll likely actually sell for. Pricing is local, so stay within a reasonable search radius.

Ryca bikes

I remember seeing those Ryca S40 bikes a while back in a magazine.
That street tracker is uber cool.

Grab it and do the Ryca mod. Been thinking about selling off my wife's baby Ninja and getting one.

I agree just do a craig list search, its a great starter bike or a bar hopper. My wife has the 2011 S40 in orange and has had it for two seasons. She is thinking of selling it to update to something bigger.

I have looked at the ryca mod and I do like it a lot but my wife thinks I need to pay off my truck before I get a new toy.
Unfortunately shes probably right. I am getting this to resell for profit as soon as I get a clear title in my name.
