The Queen of Yard Sales Strikes again!!!!!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I went to a yard sale after work today. They had a 100cc dirt bike for $100. I got to talking to the guy and he said if I could fix his computer I could have it for $20.... So...... we have a dirt bike! It's a 2004 and only needs a spark plug and carb cleaner! My 9yr old doesn't know yet. It's a suprise
Pictures to come tonight.

He is going to love it! It's Justice who is 9, right? I'll bet he flips out. If you have a videocamera, tape it in case he has a huge reaction. Maybe you can send the tape into America's Funniest Home Videos!

Sure! I love yard sales!


I didn't get any pic of Justice on it because it was dark when he came home and we're still tweaking it to make sure it's safe. Plus, he's never rode one before so we have to teach him
But he's pics of Dh and the neighbor working on it and testing it out

Good luck with finding the helmets cheap Alycia.We paid $70 for each of the kids helmets.But, they weren't used.So, you may be able to find them cheaper--if you buy used.
My kids NEVER get on the 4 wheelers without having on thier helmets.

Well, everywhere was closed today so it will have to wait until tomorrow or tuesday.

We are looking at another one we found in a yard sale today. It's a 125cc Suzuki but it needs a couple parts. They was $35 for it. Im going to price the parts tomorrow

That's good. Never know what some people might sell you, then you'd be inheriting their trouble. I'd hate to spend my hard earned money on something and it go to waste.
