Broken ATV for sale. Good deal?

Hey what do you guys think. Is this ATV worth buying and fixing up? I am looking for a honda for my girlfriend to use and didn't know if this would be a good deal after the repair costs.

"I've got a 2004 honda 250 recon fourwheeler the motors runs excelent and the bike itself is in good shape but the only problem is the bike wont move.
On the rear side of the drive shaft the splines are busted causing the driveshaft to slip in the rear-end and not move the bike.Problem may be fixed for a couple hundred bucks"

Thanks for any input

Welcome to the Forums!!

If that's the only issue I would go for it too. but it also depends on how much your going to be spending to buy it too.

Well considering I am no mechanic I honestly would have no clue, and have to take his word about it's problem. Oh I forgot to put in my post that he wants 750.00.

Yeah, if you can get a good deal on it. Sounds like the drive shaft and pinion shaft might have to be replaced. If the splines on the drive shaft are damaged, the splines on the pinion shaft probably will be too.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

If the engine runs good, probably the biggest thing that could be wrong with it is that the whole rear end might need to be rebuilt. Just look at it like the whole rear end is bad and see what it would cost to get it fixed. If it's more than you want to spend, then it might be a good ideal to move on.

You could go on ebay and get an idea of what some parts will cost.
