2002 Sportsman 500 HO value

I have an opportunity to buy a 02 Sportsman 500ho with only 200 miles. Its yellow and has a winch, front and rear baskets. The winch is in a aftermarket bumper. It looks like it just came out of the showroom. They are asking $3500. Trying to see if this too high. I already have a 96 SP 400 which is in the shop needing the upper rebuilt. Trying to decide whether to fix old one or get a different one then fix old one later. I use it to pull a Swisher and blade snow.

I would try to get them down to 3200$ but that is a pretty good deal cause it barely has any miles.

I agree on trying to get it down a little. I bought a 2002 Ducks Unlimited 500 Sportsman with 163 miles a few months ago and gave $3400 and thought that was pushing it a little but it looked like it came of the showroom, there wasn't even any dust in the air box.

The bike is 3.5 hrs away. I'm now told it is a 1999 500 HO with 190 miles. It has EBS. Without the VIN I can't tell what year it is.

For a '99 thats real steep, sometimes low miles isnt good either as the carb is prob dirty, 99 worth $2500 top's
April I bought a 2004 600 for $500 with 1200 miles, it runs good but have been working on it since, so maybe $500 in parts and I got a nice quad worth $3500
Same weekend also picked up a 2006 Kodiak 450 for $800 with 5500 miles, actually the Kodiak needs less because parts are alot cheaper.

I also agree with everybody here, $3500 is a little pricy for a 2002 regardless of miles. New 500 HOs are selling for under $5000 up here. Area makes a big difference in pricing, but I still think anything over $2800 is high...just my .02.

Model Description 2001 ATV,SPORTSMAN 500,HO,OP,3. It is in excellent shape from pics and what I have been told. But I am not sure its worth 3500. Not sure what the OP and 3 mean in description from Polaris website.
