Need help- to buy or not to buy

Hey,
I saw this bike for sale on pinkbike and i wanted to know what you thought about it. it is a used 2003 norco sasquatch. I contacted the seller and he said it would be $600 CAD with shipping.

Do you think I should spend a little more for a new wolverine? I not so sur how beat up the bike is b/c pictures can only show so much.

Thanks,

Ask him to give a list of all the imperfections on the bike and anything else on it that needs repair.

Its not worth $550. I would say its around $450. The bike brand new was worth around $800.

Thanks, I appreciate the responses, I am leaning towards a wolverine or a bigfoot now anyway. I looked at some close ups of the frame and it seems like it was worked in, A **** LOAD!

I agree with wannagetgood. I don't think they sold for much more than that new. original list should be the starting point to negotiate down.

its a Norco, you cant go wrong there, and ya, its a 19.5", thats HUGE! I would personally prefer a smaller bike. also, i like new better, then you know what has hapened to the bike. go bigfoot, best choice
