    So Ive had my 09 Kawasaki KX250F, w/ over $3000 in performance parts, up for sale for awhile. Got offered a 2003 Mazdaspeed Protege w/ 117k miles. Mods include Injen CAI, hot and cold hard pipes, and a forge blow off valve. The Mazdaspeed came stock with a turbo, tuned suspension, wheels and other sporty things. But I looked up the carfax on the car, it says its been in 2 wrecks and has been rebuilt twice. I couldnt find how severe the wrecks were, they could be slight fender benders? Would you guys make the trade? Ive already got my taco, just thought this would be a pretty fun car since I dont get enough use out of my dirt bike.

    Could you take the trade then sell the mazda for the money you wanted out of the bike? I would only do the trade if i knew i could flip the car, it looks like a money pit

    SOLD
    Passssssssssssssss

    Edit: Only way I would do it personally, would be to take it to a shop and put it on a lift. Make sure frame is good and all suspension parts look okay. Then maybe, lol
