$7k opening and BIN for $8k for a 2002?
He's claiming that he's already losing 5K at that price.

Ain't gonna get it... Trade value is $4330, dealer retail is $6270.
Other than the custom work (tank stretch and raked trees), all he's got is a bunch of bolt-on parts... and the paint is scratched and bubbled.

Not to mention he's converted it to a rigid, so the first thing the buyer is going to need to do is spend $500 on a set of Progressives... and he's removed the horn and front turn signals. I've got those mirrors and they are the cheaper Ness units... cast, and the chrome is horrible. I have to keep after them constantly, and they're still pitting badly.

I think he should bite the bullet and accept the $6k cash offer.

LOL!

At least he didn't say "The engine runs great, except for a nasty rod knock!"

Nice looking bike but like Rich said, not worth the money he's asking. Maybe he'll get lucky. And wouldn't a dime size bubble mean it has a poor paint job?

I bet he gets what he is asking because of the looks alone. It looks like a pricey custom even though we know it is not. There are a lot of impulsive shoppers on ebay that don't really know about what they are buying. Once, I sold a $30 dollar accessory for over $100 on ebay and it was used. It wasn't my fault, I started the auction at 10 dollars and clearly stated that it was used but in good condition. Bidders just started bidding like crazy for some reason.

I agree it looks good, but with the paint bubble and the rigid rear, tht is $1500-$2K rt there. Additionally you have no idea what kind of bodywork is below the paint on the "stretched tank"> THe bubble could be because of a pinhole in the tank, that will cost you $150+ by itself.. My meanie is lowered, but can still corner fairley well. Also any speed bump will knock the **** out of the bottom of that motor.

Nice scoot on the whole but to get the coin he wants, he should get it repainted, and buy a set of progressives. Additionally I would like either a tach or speedo( I have a tach only). A digital setup would be nice.

Not to thread highjack, but that's b/c people are stoopid and think that just cause it's on ebay they're gonna get it cheaper than if they bought it somewhere else. I would say most of the time when you get something for a smokin deal they end up raking u over the coals for it with the shipping charge anyway.... Perfect example, during Christmas, my PSP core system I bought from Amazon.com for $169 plus a few $$ for shipping was going on ebay for over $250!!! C'mon people what r u thinking.......... Ok, I'm done....

I agree...although we all know the bike isn't worth that much, some newbie will pay the 7-8k
