    Looking for a CAT 240's or larger, something into the 2000's prefer a track machine, but wheeled ok. Other machines considered, but prefer hand controls. Must have full cab/heat. $26k invested in bike, looking for $15k or so trade.....cash talks even more. Pic in avatar, some details below:

    Shante Frame with a 38* rake
    100ci RevTech with a 6 speed trans
    Primo Open primary with 3" belt drive (BDL)
    Arlen Ness 12" over front end
    Harley Davidson Ign/cluster
    Fully adjustable rear suspension
    Custom paint with tribal flames and ghost flames not seen in pics
    Le Pera and Corbin seats, front and rears-a few sets (not shown).
    Vance and Hines Shorty pipes with baffles removed (has a badass sound of it's own)
    Lots of extra chrome, etc.

    FYI Cat started making skids in 98', so a 2000 and newer isn't too hard to find and a 236 is larger than a 247 or a 242. I would recommend a B series 2004.5 and newer.

    Thanks. When I said into the 2000's, I did actually did mean newer. I know exactly what I want, it's whether I will find one to trade, therefore I'm willing to consider anything thrown my way. I actually have a lot of hours in the seat of a 236b, a 277 also. I really didn't like how the 277 would lose lifting power when running into a pile. Infact, it was real easy to kill it doing so. If a wheel machine, I want a 252 or 262b, if a track I'd prefer a 257b.

    I suppose it doesn't matter....I just threw it out there. Not too many people will want to do this sort of trade unless they have the $$ to do so. I've seen a lot in my price range, I'd just rather do the deal this way if possible. LOL, trade me one of yours!!
