Look at this potential
« on: January 02, 2012, 05:04:34 PM »
Yeah, rims, tires, tranmission, welder and 50cc dirtbike.  Got a figure in mind for this puppy!  Thinking $550 to 600 on this one, going by fact the tires look so so, don't know if the welder is a top of the line, don't know what brand the 50cc bike is, and I don't know what that trans is to or if it's even good.



Remember this unit?  This unit was supposed to go up in September, got redeemed(Was originally in a thread I created about matresses).  It's back, if it goes up should I worry about stuff being taken out?  I ask becasue I compared pictures from September to now and it's the same picture.  So I am guessing the units gone untouched again since September if it does not warrant taking a new photo.  Really thinking I can score this unit for about $400 to $450(same place i got my other 10x30).


As of right now this place has 5 units, may try to take the sweep, but these 2 are the prize units.

Silent bids at my favorite place where storage wars prices are not found.

Anyone think I can pull these heavy hitters down

I like the toolbox in the back.  Not sure about the welder either.  The little battery/air pump car start thing is worth about $25-$50 at the flea.  I bought mine new and always have people asking where got it.  Looks like an air hose in bottom left corner of the picture.  Is the wood looking thing in front a fride or such?

I like both units.  Hope you can get them for a decent price.

Yeah, toolbox in the back is easily worth $150.  I just hope I can get it for what I said, if so I would stand to do really well on the unit.

I have no clue what that wood box is upfront, but judging by the unit, I'm going to bet it has something of some value in it.

Update on this unit. Bike looked like hell. Brake and clutch assemblies were either broken or missing, and engine looked liked a gasket had gone bad. Tires looked really bad(at least those front 4 stacked were truly garbage). Put in a $300 bid and didn't get it.

One unit had black mold(and looked horrible). Didn't bid on that one. A 5x10.

Put a $110 bid on a 5x15 showing nothing special, didn't win it, and that for this facility is usually a winning bid.

A 5x5 with a mini fridge, NIB microwave, and 5 totes went for more then my $30 bid(again usually a winning bid at this place).

And 10x30 didn't go up for sale. Oh well I guess.

Sorry for your bad luck Acman....but I do have to ask:

1) what was the wood box up front?

2) was that a mig welder or what to the right in picture?
