    being in NYC usually adds about $200-$300 to the price of old bikes that are under $2k (basically the nyc convenience cost is 20%). The NADA guide is based on reported sales amount for the purpose of taxes and registration so it isn't always accurate but it tends to be close (it is the national average after all). Sometimes it is behind the curve, sometimes ahead, with bikes under $2K it is usually spot on. If he sells in April-may-June that price may even re-inflate back to $1500.

    If you think you can get it for $1000, bring cash and negotiate. show him the NADA value, it might help your case. Also point out that the economy is in the shitter. Hey It looks like a $1000 bike to me but what do I know, I haven't seen it in person. During the summer the bare minimum for a bike no matter how bad it is is $1000 as long as it runs and drives.

    If you don't like it, or feel you are compromising, go look for something else.

    Maybe try to knock a couple bucks off that cb360, depending on what kind of shape it's in. Or get into the cb750. If all it needs is carb work, I'm sure we could get it sorted.
