So I'm toying with the idea of just getting the kids a good starter 250/340 instead of doing the whole 120 route. I think "Hey, look for something in 80's even into the early 90's and see whats up". My sister had a killer little yamaha when she was a youngster and the thing was rad!
After a few weeks on Craigslist, the general consensus is that if the sled is 'old enough' people automatically jump onto this vintage/tired iron bandwagon and the sled that SHOULD be worth around $500 is now worth $1000 or more because "Hey, you could race vintage with it!".
Hey, your sled is old/heavy/has broken parts/has missing parts/etc. (yeah, I did go look at a few)...WHY ARE THEY ASKING SO MUCH FOR THEM!
