Welcome to the forum from BC, Canada .....
A friend had his '89 350 4Trax listed for sale at $3900.- CAD
It was virtually 'brand new' ......
I don't know if he got the $3900.-

Post some photo's if possible ...

will; come down to if its worth it to you or not, at this age, parts start to become an issue , so, keep that in mind
but most GOOD running 4x4 atv's are worth a grand these days!

I gave $1100 for mine and put another $400 in it to get it running. These old girls gotta lotta years and several vital parts are not available. Other parts available thru breakers but premium $.
This one looking tough and missing some parts. If it runs great then I'd consider it. you can cut expenses by doing a lot of the repairs yourself--if you study up and don't use cheap aftermarket parts
Like BigT says it's worth it to take off a couple bennies

Parts aren't supper common for these, as my research has shown me since acquiring one, lol.

If that bike were offered to me for a grand I might think seriously about it. But not until I had spent a couple hours minimum, going over it with everything I have in my toolbox. Same as any other used equipment purchase... if it were for sale dirt cheap I might snoop a little less, or not at all. :)

Are you a decent mechanic with some decent tools? Like old, durable, heavy, well-built stuff? Don't mind paying premium prices for used (obsolete) parts?

I have an 87 and I really like it. I'll have over 2 grand in it when its done. I'm a nutter though... the incurable kind....

How do you feel about that Foreman? Will it be a good bike for you?

Up here in Quebec you rarely see a bike for 1000$ that actually runs. I'd go for it; couple more hundred bucks invested in it and you'd have a very dependable bike! Check normal stuff like the air filter, gas tank rust, etc.

Normally whenever someone sells the bike the battery is dead. Sets you back a 100$ right off.
