No leads but I'd suggest you just keep your eyes peeled and have your cash ready. Regular visits to autotrader.com and local dealerships. If the price is right, I'd sell you mine....I wouldn't mind a new one.

Welcome to the group. A possible suggestion. When I was looking for bikes, I did find occasionally that some bikes I was interested in didn't always hit CycleTrader. I'd suggest maybe, since Vees and Wees aren't exactly the most common type out there, (and seem to go quickly when they do appear) maybe calling a dealier or two and having them keep an eye out for you and secondly.....1 Vee and a couple of Wees were on this site recently (within last year). wwww.northermotorsports.com . They are a used bike dealer, handling mechanical repairs, sales and sales on consignment apparently. I can't speak direclty about them although I know two people who have dealt with them and found them pretty good to deal with.

Safe ride

$300 more and you get a couple years newer and less miles.

This one is more than a Grand less and 15,000 less kms.

This one has no bags but its even less expensive (I hate the term "cheap")

What do you plan to use the bike for?
