    Default Minibike question. I'm selling all my sh*t and have no clue what it's worth

    So I don't really ride much anymore due to an inner ear/ balance problem.. I've got a few minibikes and some parts I want to get rid of.

    First one is a Montgomery Ward's/Gilson mini I built from scratch about 15 years ago. Everything was new, tires wheels, bearings, sprockets chain, etc. Powder coated frame by QC. Has a 9 hp techumseh and a Comet torq-a-verter. I honed and ringed the engine a while ago. It's been sitting in my shed and hasn't been used since 2010-2011? I just pulled it out. Gonna clean it up and get it running.

    Second is an unassembled frame one of my clients have me a long time ago. It's a knock off of a Ruttman. Needs to be welded together and built.

    Third is a 70s large frame mini, possibly an El Burro or something along those lines. I had a couple El Burros back in the day, it's very similar. Needs everything but comes with a new back tire and rim.

    I also have some parts, axles, sprockets, tires and rims, a flathead Briggs, etc

    I want to sell it as a package so it all goes away at once. I'll try and get some pictures up, my usual way isn't working anymore...

    Any thoughts on a price? Don't want to give it away, but I'm not looking for top dollar either. Just want it gone...

    I was thinking 5-600 for all of it? Is that in the ballpark? Thanks

    I used to be 'with it'. Then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm 'with' isn't 'it', and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me.......

    Ditto. About 8 years for me. I got some shots in my ear and it helped a lot. It's still a bitch tho.

    I havent had the shots yet. Dana White from the UFC had his cured. He did not regain his hearing, but no more ringing or dizziness. I would gladly deal with that trade off...lol

    The process he used is called regenokine treatment. I did a quick search years ago and it was unavailable here in the states. I just rechecked and it looks like we have a couple clinics that offer the service in Oakland county. I wonder if it would be covered by BCBS for our condition?

    No shit. I wrote off the hearing in my affected ear a long time ago and made my peace with being half deaf. I'd gladly lose the constant tinnitus tho.

    Me too. I think that has more to do with my inability to hold a conversation than the hearing loss. I know people have to be tired of me making them repeat themselves.
