    Depends on the condition of the banshee. If it is safe to ride and runs strong, I'd say its worth the $2000+

    ya its a 2002 and the mods are: Fresh motor, less than 10 hours, wiseco .030 over pistons, new crank, fmf gnarley exhaust, new intake, 35mm carbs, cool head, new clutch, tires and wheels, 6 gallon tank, and a moose racing bumper

    the things i would do to it would be change the plastics, get a normal size tank, and nerf bars.
    what do ya think??

    Damn it looks clean! Looks like a good deal to me, I'd try talking him down maybe $200, just because you can.

    Looks like a really nice banshee, I say go for it.

    Might be worth 2 but not 3000. I would want to see paper on new parts. Do comp test. Check suspension good. If you start finding worn parts start knocking off the price.

    Be patient. Sooner rather than later you will find a clean one in your price range, i wouldnt consider that one and i price banshees all the time looking for another project.
