  • 100k bike price??

    I found a 2005, 1700 road star with 110k miles on it and appears to be in pretty decent shape. Just wondering what something like that would be worth.. I haven't seen it in person yet. Looks to be pretty much stock, so not a lot of goodies to sell off of it. I'm thinking maybe as a bobber project bike... so, what do you guy think would be a fair price for something like this? he is asking $1500. i'm not sure, but it looks like it maybe a midnight. I think it has chrome lower forks, No spot lights, stock exhaust and seats, does have a back rest, windshield, and crash bar..... just curious??
    i'm trying to add a link, but not sure if it will work.. if someone else see's it and really wants it, go ahead, you won't hurt my feelings
    Update, the link didn't work, but if anyone wants to see it, it is on FB market place in New Bloomington ohio

    $150? And, you ain't bought that yet?!?!? Did you mean $1,500? That would likely be the upper end... and, if it was running well, and all looked good, I wouldn't mind paying that much. Two matters would be that it is now an orphan, and few would think a 110k mile bike would have much life left in it, but, of course, we all know better, Offer him $1,250, and I bet he'll take it. If he doesn't... leave your contact information, as I would bet he'd get back to you after a bit. Others?

      yes I meant $1500. I edited it. I would be all over it for $150 lol.......

    $1500 isn't bad. We all know how clean oil will let these things pretty much last forever.
    If it runs well & looks good I'd be all over that.

      I was actually looking for a dirt bike when I ran across this bike, Now it's got me thinking about another bobber project. I think this link might work..

          hopefully they are just stickers.. If you buy it then the temptation will be away from me and I can go back to looking for a dirt bike.

          I bought a 1999 GMC 1/2 ton truck once with 250K on it . I remember my Dad saying, "How much can it have left?" I used that truck to pull a ton of shit from Texas to Arizona with a big ass trailer on the back, drove it another 70K miles, and sold it for what I paid for it. It was a small V-8 with a 5 speed standard trans. Turned around and got a 2004 Chevy, a black beauty with a V-6. Biggest mistake I ever made. I should have kept the GMC. That Chevy wasn't half the truck. Live and learn.

            I too had a 1999 shortbed Chevy with the same 4.8 liter v8 and 5 speed. I loved that truck and wished I still had it. Very rare to find a full size truck with a manual transmission.

          That V6 was a crappy motor! it got worse mileage than the 350 V8 and was underpowered. I had a brand new 89 and I hated that truck! traded it off and bought a 76 Ford with a 390! It got about the same mileage the V6 did!

                That probably means he sold it, didn't take down the ad and is not watching Craigslist. I see that all the time on Craigslist and Marketplace
