Baja 5bss Totally trick

First of all looking to trade this baja towards a heli, or helis... or heli packages.


I have a Baja 5bss that I had built by an owner of a company that made Baja 5b, and 5t upgrades... he built the buggy for me with all new items he had kicking around plus alot of items I picked out myself... he put some very nice items on her and I paid good money for them, I built it two keep, however... I only have ran less then two tanks of gas through it since it was built and wasn't really into it, when I did use it I wasn't afraid to use it when I did (its a baja its not made to sit still ... I used it mostly for about 10 minutes, 6 different times just to roost around in the dirt with to impress friends lol.... anyway the last run I think the clutch let go... I will get some recent pics so you can see its current states... it runs VERY strong, I'm just not into gas rigs, I am a big FE model boat, and electric plane guy, and just starting to get a bad heli bug after buying a 300x blade.... ... NOTE that NO RADIO Will be INCLUDED... but the failsafe IS included...

Buggy has a Factory 5t motor with the RARE, and well desired GBE hornet pipe that works very well with the 26cc motor... I had the builder put the chrome package option to the motor.... wanted this to be my cool party starter


PLEASE NOTE the first few PICS were from about 14 months ago when I had it built its now dirtier....it... the unit has an enitre skidplate running its entire length of its underside... along with side deflectors... the skid is scratched up but this unit has seen VERY little use... last 2 pics with snow on ground is present uncleaned state... I will clean it up before shipping, just pulled it out of storage so one could see its present state... it will make a fantastic baja for someone.

And if someone doesn't want to trade without the clutch fixed I will have it fixed before the trade, just make sure your trade(s) are worth it.... I've been lazy and not enthused with using it so its sat... still fires up and runs like a top, clutch just isn't engaging.... very well may be a super simple fix like a nut that backed off.... my buddy is my 5b mechanic so I could just drop it off to him to have it fixed before shipping... I value the baja at around $1000 fixed, $800 present state that might be a very easy task to fix, it will cost far less then $200 no question... the clutches are very reasonable... and this was a HD clutch installed hence why I think its something simple.
