80% Complete. Factory built fuselage mounted on landing gear. All control surfaces built. Wings are complete but need the wing modification. Wing mod. kit included. Canopy already mounted. All work done except for engine and panel. Have the complete factory blueprint and plans kit. All records and receipts. Have over $24,000 invested in the factory fuselage and materials alone. The exact kit if purchased from Zenith today would cost $34,800. If you are interested in having a very nice plane with substantial savings, then look no further. I have a complete photo build log of this project.
I will consider any and all "Reasonable" Offers.

As an owner off a 601XLB, I just want to tell you that the market for 601's never recuperated after the wing fiasco.
I bought a flying 2006 AMD factory built aircraft, with a glass panel, Garmin avionics, for 35K, thats with 400 hours and a Continental 0-200.
There is a very nice flying 601 for sale right now with a Jabiru 6 cylinder engine, 70 hours for 20K
If you really want to sell it, get realistic about what it's market value really is, put an ad on Barnstormers with a price listed.
I see you have a lot of lookers, if you really want to sell it, there is a buyer for the right price.

The OP did not list a price or express an opinion about the value. He's asking for offers.

No, he's asking for reasonable offers. If I offered him $10 right now, I doubt he'd find that reasonable.

He didn't say what is a reasonable offer. Usually that is determined when the offer is made if he accepts or rejects. I suspect he would reject $10. The point is, someone told him to "get realistic." That comment was uncalled for. Maybe he is being very realistic. You don't know until you make an offer.

Sorry if some of you have taken my post the wrong way. I was just trying to help the OP out, he did not seem to get any response to his ad, and usually when no price is listed, it denotes either a person who is not aware of the value, or he wants a high price which if listed would chase away serious buyers.
I was just trying to advise him of the current value of his unfinished aircraft. I know that for me if no price is listed, I'm not usually interested
Everything will sell for the right price.

Dave, I think you offered good advice. Unfinished 601XL kits are very difficult to value unless they're complete quick-build kits with the B mod kit, so a more complete description with some photos of what he's selling would probably have attracted more attention.

Looking at Barnstormers, a complete flying 601XL-B tail dragger nicely equipped with 208 TT and Lycoming O-235 L2C just sold for $27,500.

I'm keeping my AMD 601XL-B 'til I croak; it's a great little airplane.
