    no he isn't, this is like trying to sell a pinto/stag for $15,000 because it is a Classic mustang. Sure it has the 302 v-8 that the earlier cars had but it is butt ugly and everybody knows it is a pinto. Same thing here, these are the last of the line of SOHC bikes, where they got heavier, larger, and only marginally more powerful. Few want them because they are ugly. I have one with 5000 original miles and I will be lucky if that bikes brings $2500, so don't offer him $4000 because it inuslts him too much? ok, keep the freaking thing. I know these bikes pretty well inside and out and I wouldn't offer him $4000, I would offer him less.

    Thats basically what i thought. Not really looking to buy anything (other than maybe a thruxton) I'm just perusing CL and Ebay to get a sense of what ppl are valuing their own bikes are (and their crazy level) / and to get a sense of valuing these bikes.

    Appreciate the help again.

    The economy is shitty right now which means you will see a lot more bikes up for sale. Now you will see the I really need the money bikes, and also the I know what I have and could use the money bikes. The first types usually can be had cheap but are rarely bikes you ever really want cause the good ones are sold to a friend of a friend before the ads hit CL, the other types are bikes you usually want but at prices that are flat retarded. Sometimes it makes sense to buy anyway (Hailwood replica) and sometimes it doesn't (5000 original mile cb750).

    I always use the completed items on ebay to really look at prices because that is how much someone is willing to pay for something.

    Woke up this morning and found this gem. Reminded me of school pictures when they make you cock your head a certain way. I think he had these done at Glamour Shots or something.
