I have to say I fully understand your decision. Winter time is better for the purchase you are looking for. Just hold on a little longer.
I purchased my bike from CL. Asking $2000. I got it for $1850.
Needed work ? Yes. In good condition for the price? Yes.
Did I feel like I got a good deal? Yes.
The worst thing the ad did not tell me was the gas tank was creamy crud. It needed the fuel system completely gone through.
Otherwise the bike was in riding condition.
New tires, low miles (9K) for a 2000 model, pristine paint, No mods other than cobra pipes and no damage.
The bike was stored in an open barn ( think cattle barn)
This guys wifes bike. She never rode it. 8300 miles in 2008
and when I purchased it it had 9100 in 2014.
Been almost exactly one year since purchase.
