If I wasn't so far away, I would offer to take it off your hands for couple hundred....I had an '86 Rebel 450 that I really liked. Wouldn't mind trying the 250 as a starter for my wife, but Kentucky is about 20 hours or so away.....
Is the potential buyer a friend? If so, let it go for little $$$ and offer to help them fix it up so you get to have some fun. Or, fix it yourself then sell it for higher $$$.
