250 Fourtrax Value with pictures

Hi. Possibly going to sell my ATV... Need money and room for new projects.

Anyways, I have a 1986 250 Fourtrax. She runs awesome, but there are some cosmetic issues. The plastics are pretty beat up, seat needs a recover and it needs some minor things like a rear brake cable (for the pedal, the lever works) and a master cyl. rebuild, starter, battery, headlight trim etc.

As for the good stuff, like I said it runs awesome. Starts on the first or second kick every time. I replaced the entire electrical system. Ignition coil, pulse generator, Stator assembly, CDI, Spark plug, etc. Carb was cleaned and adjusted, throttle was adjusted so there is little free play and its responsive. Tail lights were replaced with LED strips because the old ones were really dim.

Many other things to mention, but I cant completely remember everything. Also has a clean title under my name with new registration. Oil and filter were both changed today.

Just looking for an estimate of the value. I welcome any/all comments and input. Thanks

you'll get screwed with fee's on ebay. your best bet is craigslist. but dont be surprised with all of the lowball offers.....really common on craigslist.

You can skip the paypal fee if they send the money as a gift. And as far as I know first time Ebay sellers get the 10% waved?
