Bikes lose a pretty good amount of their value once they've been ridden. Has he given you an indication of what he thinks he can get for them on the open market? This can be a dicey situation, as buying from a friend can turn into a nightmare. I would start by asking him what he would be willing to sell them to you for and if that seems reasonable pay for it, but understand it's buyer beware. If one of the bikes ends up needing a major repair, you're on the hook for it, and it could cause problems between friends.hotrodtommy said:I am buying an '04 Gary Fisher Tassajara from a friend, who paid $650 about a year ago. What is a fair offer to make him? The bike is in good condition, stock.
He is also selling me an '04 ladies GT Timberline. Any ideas?
Thanks for you help!
