Volume of Stroms For Sale

Hi all,

New here and pretty set on getting a used Wee this Spring. I'm wondering if any of the regulars here could tell me if the number of Stroms for sale in the Marketplace generally increases in volume as we hit Spring/Summer?

I tried to research this myself, however the 60-day limit on the For Sale postings makes it a little bit challenging.

Any info would be appreciated!


Thanks,
ck

I'm in the Twin Cities also. I got my bike at Leo's South in Lakeville. They normally have a couple used in there and new. The hitching post in south st.paul has new ones and can get used. I dont know if your looking for new or used but there are some around the twin cities.

Motorcycling is a lot like life:
What's the point if you don't enjoy the ride?

I can't say if the supply increases but your more likely to get a better deal in winter or late fall when there are fewer people looking.

craigslist is your friend. I like searchtempest.com as an easy way to check all the cities in your area.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've been to Leo's in Lakeville, very nice people but they don't have any new or used in stock (yet).

Craigslist is searched everyday. I'm partial to allofcraigs.com, but I will checkout searchtempest.

I'm probably a bit particular in what I'm looking for, would like ABS model in a neutral color (black/grey). I've seen quite a few from time to time on the coasts, but nothing in the Midwest so far. So I guess I'm hopeful there will be more within "viewing" distance when Spring comes around. I'm not opposed to a fly 'n' ride, but to date my longest trip hasn't topped 200 miles, so I'm a bit hesitant of anything more than a few states away!
