polaris magnum for $500??????

I found a 97 polaris magnum for $500 im not much for polaris and cant tell you squat about them but thpufht it might make a good spair bike what do yall think. It runs good and brakes work but it does need new tires on the back one has a big hole from a stob and the other only holds are for a couple hours.

I heard the they are tanks and the four strokes are very reliable.They have 3 chains and a belt so there is a lot of things to watch.

For 5 bills,or possibly even 4bills you could always use it as a backup for anyone who wants to ride with you but hasn't a ride of their own,or clean it up n flip it for more...

Good luck,maybe he is in a hurry to sell it n needs some quick cashola...That always makes the selling price more negotiable...

Its 4x4 and runs? Its worth a grand regardless of make or size... snatch it up! They can be a bit of a pita with the chains and tranny issue but definitely something I'd flip.

Whatever is currently in one piece... 400 prairie with stuff, 300 fourtrax, 500 sportsman, yz 125...

The hate for polaris on this site is incredible haha. But no one seems to have OWNED one and had the problems first hand. The trail boss is a good, solid and reliable machine. Ignitions run about 80 from the dealers, and tires as we all know are expensive. if it has low hours and miles and looks nice you should be able to flip it pretty easy.
