1 million dollars


j/k. I personally would not pay more for a bike with mods. than I would pay for a stock bike. I actually look for stock vehicles. :)

most people are the same. For the most part, people will pay far less if the bike is heavily modded almost never more unless they really like what you have done with it.

+1 mods only add value if the person buying would do that anyways. I, and most people I think, avoid extensively modified vehicles. Part it out.

Seriously... part it out. And let me know what your prices are when you do :-D I've got a list that I might be interested in if the price is right

We would all like to think that what we do or add to a bike will add to it's value, however it rarely does. You might get a little more for your bike than if it was stock but don't count on getting a whole lot more. As has been said before, heavily modified bikes can actually scare people off (I know It does for me). You would be much further ahead, money wise, by parting out the accessories. If it's too much of a pain to remove your stuff, just sell it as is but understand you probably won't recover your costs.

i think randy O is in the ball park.but like other have said it going to be a hard sell. even if you part it out. the parts are used and people are only going to pay so much for used part. but who knows you might be lucky:)

the mods alone are atleast worth 1k+. If you really wanna get rid of the SV and are being lowballed by dealers, then consider trading bikes.

it's hard to say, i think people on this site are a little low, a friend bought a cruiser in 2002 for 6300 and sold it this year for 6800, just put pipes and lowered the rear, put it in a high traffic area with a for sale sign and see what happens

NADA places the retail value somewhere between $3,715 $4,865.

That's what a dealer would sticker it for. Private sellers generally sell for less, but more than what trade in is.

If you want top dollar - you WILL be unhappy with a trade in value.

Whoever bought that bike was likely uninformed and likely did it with no knowledge of what it's worth. There isn't a single Metric cruiser that holds its value that well. Yamahas do pretty well - but not like that. No way.

Your freind got lucky.
