    my guaranteed way of selling a trike

    I'm always fixing these old trikes. Always selling them too. but it seems everytime I list one for sale, I might find something wrong with it and I'll order the part needed to fix it. But usually someone will come along and buy the trike before that parts show up.
    my 200x sold before the seat cover came. 125m sold before the switch came in. 185s sold before the brake cable showed up.
    just ordered a front master cylinder for the 350x last night. we'll see if it shows up before a buyer does. jim

    Good luck with the sale. Just remember the use of JB weld automatically takes 50% off the asking price. Atleast inform the buyer that the mickey mouse fix is there. Personally it'd upset me if i wasn't told about it-

    sorry had too

    where the chain wore thru. definetly! even told the guy about having to tap the cam gear hole to a larger size. The leaky master cylinder. If the trike was perfect, the price would be alot higher, but at 2500, with a title it's probably one of the cheapest running titled complete 350x for sale around Arizona. jim

    Jim, the 350x is one of those particular trikes i wish i purchased 10yrs ago, prices are insane right now for these three wheeled contraptions. I didn't mean to sound jerk-ish in my post above if it came across that way. Someday maybe one will be at a job i'm at tucked away in the dark corner of a basement and they'll say oh just take it it's taking up space........ya i'm dreaming-

    no offense taken, when I sell stuff, I give full disclosure , if there's a issue, I'd rather the buyer know about it up front. guys suppose to look at it this weekend, I noticed when it's running I can't get the shifter into neutral, 1st or 2nd no problem, just can't get it to stop in N. guy has the same issue with his other trike.
    11 years ago I bought my 1st 350x for 500 bucks. went to get a bonded title and it turned out to be on record as stolen in 1987. took 372 days and court dates etc but got the trike back and titled then sold it and a 87 200x to a guy for something like 1500 bucks. jim

    I guess the going price for a running, titled 350x trike must be 1500 bucks. I must have gotten 7 emails, texts messages thru offer up. all says they'll take it for 1500 bucks. no looking, no calls just a flat offer. jim

    You gotta put up with 10 of those for every serious buyer. I mean, even some of those saying $1500 aren't even serious with that offer.
    It's the way of internet buying now. You reach everyone......and I mean everyone.

    Good luck with it. I wouldn't budge much if are not in a hurry to sell it.

    I'm planning on a 300EX/350X project and need a 350X roller. Any chance of that for a bargain?

    I'm in North Dakota right now and could possibly swing by that way for a good deal on a 350X roller with a titled frame. You could sell the engine to someone else and me the titled frame and possibly still come out on top. Asking for a friend.

    sorry, don't plan on parting it out. I got it as a back up for my other 350x which I'm the 3rd owner, titled and have the original bill of sale etc. We haven't taken the trikes out since summer and when they sit, I start getting ideas of selling things.


    actually if you were to buy the whole trike, you could sell the motor and unneeded parts to offset the cost of your build. jim

    I found a better deal anyways. You're too high on the price. This one's a 2006 model and cheaper. Guess the 350X market is downward trending. Lucky me.

    If you can't tell, I'm just giving you a hard time. I think most of us have dealt with our fair share of tire kickers. Suprised the scam above didn't list it as 4x4.

    I think that trikes advertised in a few cities. I tried looking at prices for 350x trikes, I don't have Facebook but everything else prices seems high. jim

    so after my last offer last night, I jacked the price up on the ad to 3500. let someone make a 2500 dollar offer. crazy thing, I learned the 350x has cam journal issues on the heads, found a complete used top end so I bought it as a back up for the back up. jim
