Hello I'm getting ready to purchase my first trials bike. I found a local 2004 beta rev3 270 in great condition, the owner was injured and the bike was only ridden one season. I'm located in Lancaster Pennsylvania he wants $3500 for the bike.
Is this a fair price? I've seen some priced lower but it is in great condition.
I'm going to compete in the AMA D6 trials series for points. Is a 2004 rev3 a good bike to start? Or would it benefit me to spend a little more look for a newer bike 2007+?
I know in trials the rider is the most important part but I do want a modern machine.
Thanks for the help.
