Default Craigslist

What you find there cracks me up at times. All most worn out tires or the guy that stock cams. Bent up sheet metal. I would never want some strangers boots or gloves. Or the guy that shows a part with no description. There is a guy selling mirrors for a specific model bike that will fit any bike.
1% of the time I find something I want

2008 Vision
Mpls, MN.

Please add your state and model of bike you have. Click user CP @ top of page and then far left click edit signature. Thanks

I've had great luck on Craigslist. I've bought four bikes and sold two using C/L.





Our patriotic stable:

Red 2012 XCT (wife's bike in NC)
Red 2012 XCT (my bike for NC)
White with custom flames 2012 XCT (wife's bike in FL)
Blue custom fire on a black 2012 XCT (my bike in FL)

2006 HD Softail Heritage (my bike when I was in MI - sold in Oct, 2017 after putting 45,000 miles and 20 states and one province on it - My first big bike and most of us will always remember our first with fond memories)

A guy posted his bike. Had a pic of huge dent in his tank... he played it down by revealing he'd only dropped it once. LOL!

Look! I love CL and has been been the greatest tool for my motorcycle experience. There is much that you have to look past and of course, lots of entertainment with how extremely stupid people can be.

I could go on and on at the redneck stuff posted... they'll let anybody on there.

If you use some common sense, CL is the best place to get a good deal as well as to get your bike sold. You got to do your homework though and be just a tad tech savvy.

I check it every day and often see a fantastic deal but I can't do anything about it due to be married... to my vegas.

After complaining about craigslist searches not being wide enough a coworker informed me about SearchTempest: Search all of Craigslist nationwide & more that allows me to search several states away.

Some police depts. are now offering a secure meeting place just for C/List meets/negotiations . Probably not a bad idea ? I mean if the proposed buyer / seller is some bad guy ? Likely he won't show up, when you announce where it is you choose to meet. And it doesn't give anyone the opportunity to see where you live & or what you may have. I have done C/List deals. If I ever do again I might just suggest it ?
