That Raleigh is sweet, but I haven't seen classic bikes sell for that much since the market crash.

If it was a 5-year old setup, I'd agree with you but that's all brand new gear being sold by the RMR dealer in Rifle who also carries DRE.

Looks pretty reasonable to me.

Didnt realize that wasnt a private party. Rafting is expensive. Wow if I am ever going to get a baller raft setup that is not owned by the Govmt, I am going to need a sponsor. I wonder how one goes about getting a raft sponsor. I will need to do more drinking, maybe put on 40lbs, and start talking about being a raft guide to people. "Hey, I am a raft guide." Drunk girls like that kind of thing.

16' Avon Bucket Boat - Mountain Buzz Gear Swap

This seems about $700 too high seeing that I picked up a 1995 Avon self bailer for $1,100 with an aluminum frame four years ago. I guess it comes with decking not shown and two ammo cans but who wants bent Carlisle breakdown oars. There is a 16' self bailer 16 years newer on the same page for $400 more bucks WTF.

You probably got the deal of the decade.

This Avon is probably a little overpriced but it is tough to tell without pictures of the frame, oars, floor, cans, etc. People post all kinds of rafts all the time but unless you make the purchase, you never hear what they actually sell for.

My frame is homemade but not bad I'd say my boat is worth 1,500. Look at this boat similar market for $500. Early 80s bucket boats are not worth much the Avon is priced like its 15 years newer and not a bucket boat. IMO
