Look at wear items as to maintenance and replacement such as fork seals, brakes, tires, chain and sprockets. If these items are not up to snuff you could easily be looking at 500-1000.00 plus the cost of bike registration and taxes. When these items need replacement on a bike I'm looking at, I deduct the mechanical costs for repair and replacement, like tires, from the sellers asking price as I will have to shoulder that cost immediately after purchase. This gives me my offer price. Makes for a good negotiating position. That is unless the bike is being sold as is.
