a few years ago when my ex was looking for a bike a local used car dealer had a very nicely customized Virago 250 for sale, the bike was immaculate, saddlebags, windshield and a bunch of chrome

asking price $5995 :rolleyes:

I stopped by and asked them if it was a mistake, even told them I could buy a brand new one for $3200, they insisted it was worth the money cause of the extras

I paid $4000 for my 2005 with mileage about the same, and mine has custom paint, full exhaust, aftermarket headlight, and handlebars.

I'm sure you guys also take the time to email a seller if they have a price that's too low and tell them that they should raise it up if they don't want to screw themselves... :tard:

the difference being, in this case he'll never get a sale, so you'd actually be helping him by letting him know. Whereas, you're implying that people can ask whatever they want. This is a totally different sitaution. I bought my 07 new OTD for $200 more than what he's asking.

and i'm not "letting him know" anything.

I just want to know what he really thinks this thing is worth.

I hear what you're saying, but the value is whatever someone will pay for it and there are many factors going into it beyond the condition of the bike, geographic/seasonal/population density/etc. I got my 04 new, out the door for just under $5K, compared to me you (and most who bought new) overpaid. Did the dealership you went to overcharge you?

It's a pet peeve partly because the one time I sold something of reasonable value on Craigslist (an outboard motor) I was inundated with BS emails, easily 1/2 of them whining to me that the item was priced too high...but I ended up selling it for exactly what I listed it for and had 2 backup buyers lined up in case the first backed out. The motor was gone in under 2 days.
