Considering selling my 82' CB900F. I really don't want to because the bike is amazing and I absolutely love riding it. But life does not always care about what we want. Just figure I'll see if there is any interest in the Inland NW area

$3000 o.b.o

In Lewiston Idaho

approx 12k miles
V&H 4 into 1 exhaust
DynaJetted and carbs synced
rims and brakes (hyd front and rear) from a 2003 ZX9
clutch replaced less within the last 2k miles
Battery tender
Starts easy, runs smooth and sounds better than any new sport bike ever
It's my daily ride but needs a new Chain 9 I may end up replacing it myself before selling it)

Just ran it through KBB, $4500... But that is a estimate. I went based off what I was seeing them listed for in a 500 mile radius from me

Had a guy offer to trade me an AR-15 for my CB. He gave me a run down of parts on it as it was a custom build. Told him I could build the same gun for $1500 brand new, so I would accept his gun at a value of $1200 and cash for the remaining. i listed my bike at $3000, found similar bikes ranging from $1500-$4500 depending on condition and local market. He offered me $500 cash and the gun. Why don't people be more serious when making offers? I have always viewed myself as fair, I do my homework and go in with a reasonable offer. I don't think I have ever low balled someone like that. I believe in paying a fair price.

Don't take it personally. I am fairly sure he was serious, but he also wants a good deal or at the very least to see if you are desperate enough to take that good deal. It's not a moral thing, some people are just bargain hunters. If the deal isn't right for you, don't take it.

Yea I'm not in a hurry to sell it. Honestly hoping that it does not sell before our financial situation improves.

Easy fix, raise he price, that way if it does sell you can still feel good about it and it might help improve the financial situation :rolleyes:

If you want to feel good about what you have now, just multiply your Idaho $'s by 1.33% and that is what you have in Canadian $
lol you have to feel good about that!
