Default Muskin Dune Cat

I believe I found a Dune Cat near me. What is the going rate for one that is complete and in running condition.?I did a few Google searches, but didn't really come up with anything concrete. Thanks in advance!

tough...

I have seen only a few on ebay thus far... and IIRC around'ish 750 bucks they were
(basically what the remolded 2sis bodies alone cost new back then)

then again, I've seen an original set of hubcaps alone (basically baby moons)
for 250 [sold!] on ebay as well...

I'd say it largely depends on overall completeness and condition,
"running" is the least thing to worry about (replacement engine is cheaper than a replacement chassis or body)

I'd say anything from 250 (rusty chassis, cracked body, no hubcaps not running/braking)
via aforementioned 700-750 (good chassis and body with only minor defects, running and braking fine [no hubcaps])
up to 2000 (perfect as or better than new condition, rustfree and perfect candy coated uncracked body with caps and fresh tyres and a well working briggs flathead [raptor or modded 5hp])

So yeah.. what shall we call the one you've seen?
I can't tell..

or to use more colloquial terms:

I will find the post and get the pic. Regardless though, from your saying, it's a no brainer. This person is only asking $90 USD for it. Sounds like if that's what it is, I need to jump on it.

Sounds like a scam to me. Or they just don’t know what they have which is rare.

ninety bucks is a steal...

so no advance payment of course.

You never know.... I picked up my Dunecat for $40 as a throw in from another kart deal. 75% complete kart, too.

cool... funny if one mistakes a Bird for a Cat, but still a nice find.

PS that's a funderbird, not a dune cat

I know and it's similarities are cool.Hmmmmm, which came first, the Bird or the Cat? This one may be bigger. I like this one better anyway and anyway it's still in the same family of FUN KARTS. Kinda looks like a baja dune buggy style. They even have a bunch of dune buggy boddies offered too. I'm going to see if they just may have the frame laying around........Maybe time so some super stretching mods!!

I would start a thread of your own and ask away. People are not going to see your question buried here in another persons thread.
