He's on crack if he thinks its worth $3000, I wouldn't pay more than $1000 for a sled that old, especially a 500. For comparison I payed $750 for my wifes 98 XC indy 600 in mint condition.

a few things to consider are how many miles it has, has the track ever been replaced, motor ever rebuilt, suspension gone through (shocks rebuilt, bogey wheels, hyfax, carbides ect) all of those are things i would have to consider before i buy a sled. hell a good track and some studs can cost over $700 so if it needs a new track i would offer less for the sled.
