Here we have a factory triple locked 1997 LX450. Yep! Factory lockers are on board!
We just took this rig on a trade in this week and it is currently going through our make ready process. We are replacing a good deal of the oil seals on the bottom end of the motor, rear main seal, the valve cover gasket, and a few other little services items. Due to the miles on the rig and the quality of build / parts we felt that it needed a solid reseal so it was 100%.
Overall it's a solid rig that was done right. We noted a few items that weren't in disrepair but were nearing a point at which we feel needed to be addressed.
Overall it is a very solid rig that runs out great, has all the right parts on it, and will be (in our opinion) mechanically serviced and up-to-date so that it is extended travel ready. We will have it for sale shortly after Thanksgiving. We are having all the motor work done this week along with alignment, some exhaust work, and a few other service items.
The exterior is in fair-good shape. There is no rust on the body anywhere but the paint is in fair shape. There are scuffs and scratches here and there and a few of the body panels are showing their age / fade. From 10 feet it looks great! If this was a long term keeper a fresh satin cement paint job would be just stellar and really pull it all together!
