Need info on selling/Tradeing value on my ped

Arterious /

Hey all I need a bit of info on this not sure how much to ask or expect. I wanna get a avanti supersport. mainly cause they are a good deal bigger then mine

Mine is a 92 tomos Bullet TT. I have all the side covers for it lacking a few screws tho. i have put roughly 150 bucks worth of Brand new parts into it I have the receipts from moped junkyard. Currently the speedometer isn't working but that is easy to fix, the engine is scratched up where the crank arms go by while you peddle, there is a small dent in the gas tank and paints chipped, no real damage tho, the steel side covors for the chain and oposite, the one over the chain is bent in a corner the othe is missing the rubber top that was glued/screwed on. it has miss-matched peddles. its missing the left hand grip. the people I got this from where using it like a dirt bike their kids beat the living crap out of it till they could no longer ride it, o and the lil hole on the kickstand for the spring to go through is bent so you can't get it through and the stand itself is a lil bent but its perfectly fine. It runs great all signals/lights work I have recently cleaned the carb/exhaust the seat has a tiny rip on the side barely visable. but it runs like a champ absolutly no problems with driving it. clocking it with my buds car I got up to about 30 or so MPH relativly quickly and im 260 pounds over 6 foot tall =) Any idea on how much I should ask if i sell it or trade it in?

Don't have a price for you , but everything that you mentioned that "werent too bad" or are "easy to fix" or missing pieces are the very same things someone would be pointing out to you while trying to get the price down... especially anything that would be "easy to fix" (then why isn't it fixed??) Reep has some kind of price guide I think,

Hey,Arterious! Have you read of the tranny troubles of the Supersport?Better review the Avanti Supersport posts by DaveI and Dick R....unless you like taking chances.Ivan seems to feel that he has sold a batch of them with no troubles,so if you're going to ignore Sean,DaveI,and Dick R.,you'd probably better get your best deal off of Ivan.Just concerned.I REALLY like the looks of them myself.

Don, thanks for your concern and I have been keeping VERY up to date on ALL the posts with this bike. The dealer I intend to by my bike from knows what the problem is and checks all avanti supersports and auto powers befor they are put out in the display room or shipped out. He had 3 auto powers lock up and his friends company had 1 autopower and 2 supersports lock up, since they have started performing their checks/maintanence they have not recieved a single report of the problem. If I remember right the 3 autopowers that he had lock up from his store wher due to the manufacturer putting them together INCORRECTLY!

At any rate I know I'll be getting a perfect machine =)

Re: Need info on selling/Tradeing value on my ped

Arterious,can you elaborate on the problem a little more?What makes that rubber washer go to pieces,etc?That dealer could sell a lot of bikes if he's right.But,I don't know........I guess I'm from Missouri and will have to be shown for sure.How are his prices?Those things with turn signals are going on E-bay for less than a thousand dollars!Where is he located?Help us out here Arterious!

He's located in florida he charges 1300 comes with turn signals + mirrors i believe Mr moped i think is the name i can check tomorrow morn

Found it,Arterious!

It's at www.mistermoped.com or Phone 941-366-6733 or older # is 941-957-4177 Located on 17th st. in Sarasota,FLORIDA ......I've seen that place before when we went on vacation.But 1300.00 is too much,Arterious.I hope he'll come down a little,say to 1100.00.

Re: Found it,Arterious!

Yeah I know 1300 is expensive for it, I also have talked to the guy quite a bit. I can prolly get him to come down 100 or so the problem is there are VERY VERY few moped dealers in florida. and thats more or less the bes tprice available here especialy consideirng he knows wtf happens with the avantis and makes sure to prevent it

There may be more....

....than you think in Florida,Arterious.I'll get back to you on this.

yes I know of them the majority are in the keys. They are rental shops. All for the turists... =) the place that i'm gettnig or hopefuly am getting the avanti from in sarasota is the best one. i may be able to find the same ped cheaper elsewhere but not much, and I know people who have bought from this guy and like him. So I'm willing to pay the extra buck to get a dealer that I can trust instead of going cheap and ending with some asshole.

On this I have exact Blue Book (Kelly).

1992 Tomos Golden Bullet TTLX

Retail, Private party - Blue Book $720.00(USD)

Approx Value yours..described condition $650.00(USD)

Trade-in, Dealer - Blue Book $390.00(USD)

Approx Value yours..described condition $330-350.00(USD)

I would reccommend squeezing him on the trade, if he wants to overprice the moped he's selling you, well then, he should overprice your trade, too.
