2 enduros for sale

So I made contact with a person selling an 07 Fe650 and an 05 Fe550. I wad interested in the 550 but didnt have the funds just yet. So knowing a friend was interested in a 650 I recommended the sale to him and he purchased both at $7000 and had plans to then sell me the 550.
With the deal came 2 sets of wheels, an over sized tank among other parts.
So he thought it was a deal to sell me the 05 550 with many missing parts and broken plastic for $3500 and he get the 07 650 both sets of wheels, extra tank and extra parts and ending up only $3500 out of pocket.
GOOD DEAL FOR HIM , BUT NOT FOR ME!!
So much for doing people favors.

Then I called him out on the way I saw it and he felt bad about it.
So he offered to send me a $200 check for a finders fee.
Im not taking it. He can keep all his money.
In the mean time. I'll be looking around for another deal. They have a way of showing up from time to time.

Yeah, seems a bit high for an 05 550. 2 grand maybe. I paid 3 grand for my 09 570 and thought it was a decent deal.

It apparently had a Ca plate zip tied to the rear, missing blinkers and various other items, broken plastic, lights not working, dead battery...
I was prepared for $3k max only because of the plate but was expecting
a 2500 to 2800 asking price considering the situation described.
But I was only dreaming.

Yeah the 550 has about a $2500 value. And thats only because of the plate hanging by a zip tie off the back.
Missing shock guard, chain guard, kick stand spring, broken off shroud guard, front fender cracked in half, carb needs clean (excessive popping) , lights not working, no blinkers or wiring for it. Rear plastic weathered like its been sitting outside. Dead battery.
Who knows what kind of sludge is in the engine or valve clearances because the bike has been in serious neglect.
It needs a lot of TLC and money dumped into it to be good again.

3k for a 570? If the bike is in decent shape, thats more than a "decent deal", thats a smoking deal.
