Twin baja- unwanted but I dont know how to sell it.
« on: April 26, 2016, 11:24:21 AM »
Hi Guys,
I usually lurk around the multicopter forums in the US and I have to admit I know very little about the Baja's- all I know is they are pretty cool- so on with the story and moving on my fiancťe bought me a twin cylinder 57cc rovan buggy- I have never used this thing and I cannot see me ever using it so I figure best thing is to sell it. Obviously I need to get my post count past ten first before I can use the for sale section but I figured in doing so I might ask for some advice- so can anyone tell me what this thing is worth and if it is worth me even trying to sell it?

It has caterpillar tracks fitted to the back. It has been started but never driven other than once across my lounge room floor. You can see the tyres have never seen dirt. I have used stock images in the first couple of pics. You can see mine is exactly the same except with tracks on the back and a large aluminum wing.

Im kinda hoping to sell it to someone who will appreciate it, its just not my thing. anyone's input on what it's worth or where I should try and sell it would be appreciated. Im not greedy, I don't expect to get full price for it, and shipping will be a killer the damn thing is HOOOGE.

I also have a Daves Motors ESP racing baja motor laying around I am gonna dig that out too and sell it- it i one of these...

Welcome to LSD mate.......

Hard to say what itís worth..... You would need to know how much they retail for first, that will at least give you an idea of where to start.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

$2699 USD..
That seems a bit expensive so I did some more searching..

Cheapest one I found is $1699 USD
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

SO $1700 USD is about $2200..
I know for a fact the tracks and wing cost her over another $500 lol

so all up I guess this cost us about $2700 or more so Im thinking I list it for $1700 AUD -  I know she paid a bit more than that but that way it might actually sell and someone will get a good deal.
Does that sound fair you think?

Yeah $1500 for the lot is a good deal, itís a good start anyway!..... To some it wonít be but thats cool they just wonít buy it...

If you donít get any bites you just lower the price like anything else you would normally sell.....

Sweet thanks for your help.

I think I will list it at $1400 then, and maybe split shipping with the buyer if it does sell as it weighs like a lot.

Thanks I dont know how it wouldrun at full throttle I am pretty certain it would throw the tracks. This thing apparently has 18hp....
I have seen videos you cannot give them full throttle they just wheelstand and flip which is why I thought the tracks a good idea. maybe whoever buys it will want to fit wheels back on it, but they could sell the tracks for like $4-500 and get a cheap deal...

its either 16hp or 18 anyway.

I had two of these ESP motors, there ok! But nothing like some of the motors you can get here in Oz.... Rooster Tail and Micks Mods engines are the go...

Hey Ozzy thanks for the info- any idea what an ESP motor is worth here in AUstralia?
I was guessing I should be looking around $500- so I would sell it for maybe $350 to 400 does that sound right to you?

*bananahi*

I reckon it's a pretty good price thumbsup but the problem you might find is that it's a fairly small bunch of people that will be interested bang head so you either might have to just wait for the right person or sell it at a bargain price to tempt the tyre kickers dontknow anyway welcome and good luck.......and either way make sure wifey gets a lovely surprise from the proceeds or it might be the last big toy she buys you *rofl*
Contempt without prior investigation will guarantee everlasting ignorance

Welcome bud. The tracks would be stripped and sold if anyone that knew bajas bought it. It is a clone no matter how you look at it. But i think if you list for $1400 it may take a little but should sell. As for your esp just check what it is 29cc 30.5 etc and go have a look at ddm. If there nip then id say 3/4 of converted price plus post should see them move on fairly quick.

Fallout that is so helpful.
I would strip the tracks off and fit the original wheels but I dont have them they were caught in a shed which burnt down.
Thanks again Ill check this motor!
(and Im gonna list the whole thing for less than $1400 so it hopefully sells.
