Default $503 2001 Banshee 350

Something fishy here... pic doesn’t look dusty (or maybe on the top of the seat?)
$500 seems too cheap, right?
Anyway let’s make a trade.
Or I'd rather buy it for $500 than trade the buggy, but feel a trade would still be a great deal.

Excellent condition. Runs great! Kids have just outgrown it and doesn't get used as much. Forward and reverse automatic transmission. Throttle control. Always kept inside. Looks dusty in pics from sitting in shed all winter. Still has original stickers on it. Starts right up and goes!! Might take partial trade for good 2 seat off road go kart. Must be in good condition. 350 cmc nothing wrong with this atv.

The background vegetation in that photo does not look like IL to me. I could be wrong however.

The phone number has an Ohio area code and has 800 as the first three numbers?

It's worth checking out. What's the worst that could happen? I guess you could get raped and killed, or killed then raped. If you have a choice I'd pick the last option.


Bummer, looks like a scam huh?

Adobe homes are very common in Chicago.
When teepees get blown away with the wind.

I messaged immediately.
But I feel like I'm being catfished.
How do they know I have a two seater off road kart that I want to trade?
The internet stalks me. This is surely a FB serial killer. I'm bringing my socks.

What a gyp. It'll probably be $550 before it gets posted in my Craigslist.

It a fake ad. And a spammer. It was the same pic here a month or so ago. The pic is from Florida also.

I don't know but she must have gotten the quad, cause it was removed and I didn't get a response.
