    Default Looking for a F3S

    Well, I finally gave up on two wheels after riding since 1966. Both knees and one shoulder replaced. Now, I'm looking for a F3S. I've got $10k in cash. What do you think my chances are of finding a good trike?
    I'm in Nevada, but would travel to buy the Can Am.

    Should be possible. Try an advanced search on Cycle Trader with Make = CanAm, Model = Spyder, and Price = 10001 or less. See what's in there that suits you. Remember that a dealer is going to want tax, tag, title, and other screw jobs.

    Plus maybe post up a WTB: (Want to Buy) Ad/thread in the For Sale by Owner sub-Forum here, but please read the '**** READ FIRST! How to Use.... ****' Sticky at the top of that section & follow the directions in it to keep your Ad live & close it off once you've got something, even if you don't get it thru that Ad!

    Here in WI, my 2019 black F3S is now in storage, but it will be for sale come spring. Not for $10K, but close. I'm thinking $11.5K cash will take it. 18K miles with 14K miles coming from extended trips. Many extras including: two up rear shock/Madstad windshield/LED lights/several TricLED lighting/Chopped rear fend (OEM included)/heated grips/Seth Laam seat/auto tires and other stuff. Fly and ride Don't have a current side photo, but will put one up showing chopped fender.

    Only problem is that you are 1700 miles from me. Looks to be a 24-hour ride - 6 hour flight to get from you to Las Vegas.

    What a great excuse for a 'fly/drive road trip', AND a 'getting to know Spyders/shake-down cruise' all in one!

    As one famous Ozzie Newcastle Lad often says: "Don't you ever let a chance go by, Oh Lord! Don't you ever let a chance go by!"

    Yup like young Norm. I took a flight to pick up my F3, and it took 3 days, 2 motels and a Ferry trip to get home.
    What an inconvenience.

    I took the, well only slightly longer way home as I had to fill in a day to get onboard for the boat-trip.
    It was awesome. Oh Yeah.

    For that price you might have to travel a little … but it should be worth it. I think I have seen something like that in FB and will post a link here if I see it again.

    You will most likely have to come up with more cash...
    I looked for 2 years and finally got a super nice F3S for 14K
