'08 Gas Gas 280

This has been a great bike for me since the summer of '15. Had several good rides on it and meet some great people. But it too has spent far to many hours in the garage last year, so it needs someone who is interested in improving the balance and overall bike skills.
I purchased it when it was posted up on here for another rider that was interested in a trials bike, but the bike was a bit out of his price range. I bought it and have had no problems at all. The only things I've done is add a Jitsie magnetic kill switch, brake pads due to too much pressure and no lock up and replace both tires which I think were original.



$3000 will take it home. No extras with this one. I do have a Jitsie trials open face Medium helmet and size 45/11 Sidi Trials boots that will need a good home once the bike is gone, or they may go with the bike???.

Iíve always thought a teials bike looked like a ton of fun. Unfortunately my gangly, awkward self probably couldnít do much with one.

Re: '08 Gas Gas 280

It is a ton of fun, I just didn't think I would find myself to busy to at least take it out back. Have a nice section built in a dry creek, 30" + logs tight off camber turns but I just never get it out. There is just something not right about that! I did do the Harvest Festival Trials event a couple of years ago, great fun, just things have got in the way the last 2 years. Did another event out off 1431 with the Austin Trials club, then went to Emma Long on a week night to just play ride with them. It really should have been the perfect bike for me to play on 4 maybe 5 nights a week for 30 minutes or so and help keep my off road balance skills while building more but...

I have no excuse... It really needs someone to show it some love.

I let my 250 smoker go for the same reasons. No time and the falls just kept piling up.

Re: '08 Gas Gas 280

Sam takes great care of his bikes and this one is no different. If you are looking for a trials bike or looking to try your hand at it, this is a great deal!

Oh man, very tempting. If you could get it to Huntsville or Conroe area I'd probably jump on it. I miss my old gas gas 320

I run hotshot for a couple of local guys if you want me to get it. Reasonable.
