    Feasible price for an '07 Fat Possum XT Demo?

    I have my eyes on an '07 Fat Possum XT that was a Demo bike. I'm really not sure what it is worth. I am aware there are crank issues with this bike, so I guess that would negatively affect the price. If I could pick this up for around $1400 would it be worth it?

    There are a few scratches here and there, but no noticeable dents. I weigh 250lbs and subsequently tend to be hard on parts. With all the horror stories of GF frames cracking, I am somewhat paranoid that I'll have to deal with that. Have the Possums had any frame failures? Would a 19" frame fit someone that is 6'2'?

    My last 2 bikes have been Fishers and I would like to keep it that way, but not if I'm going to be constantly buying new frames.

    Thank you so much for your help guys!

    EDIT: Bike appears to have the Pike 409 and rear shock from '06 so it may not be an '07.

    If it's orange and has the 409 and a split rpa, it's an 06.

    I'm 6' and fit a 17.5 just right, so 6'2" on a 19 sounds about right. Don't hear about alot of frame failures with the fat possums. I did crack the rear swing arm on mine, but was able to get it warrantied I beat the living daylights out of my 2006 Fat Possum XO.

    Price wise, $1400-1500 sounds about right.
