    As you know it is not hard to detect if the ski has been pieced together ... after a chopp-shop job. From what I read the first thing they will do is try to obsure the vin #, but in most cases depending on year ... you can tell if a lot of re-work has been performed. We have the same problem up here on dirt bikes. Have to do a through check & ask a lot of questions about the history of the ski .... " How many times its changed hands" .
    Good Luck P.S. If they seam to eager to do a deal & drop the price a few times ... all the more reason to do more asking & looking!

    Make sure they have a legit Florida title on hand and the numbers match the HIN plate. Also make sure the HIN plate has not been damaged or altered. You can also run by a dealer and see what they are supposed to look like for the particular make you want.
