2005 Road Star

Looking at a 2005 Road star with about 9k on it. Looks to be pretty stripped down. Stock seat, no windshield stock pipes. Asking price is 3500. That seems low to me but the ad doesn't appear to be a scam. Opinions?

I wouldn't call that bike stripped down - stock seats and pipes are just that, stock. Roadies were not shipped with floorboards or windshields unless they were the silverado model I think. Otherwise that stuff is add ons. Which, for that price you can do. Let the buyer beware though - check it out - at 9k and 8-9 years old it's probably going to need new tires. Go see it...

be sure and have tons of buying questions ready. do they have any recent receipts of work/service done on the bike? how often has maintenance been performed? if they performed the maintenance, exactly what did they do and when? any accidents? how was it stored? how often was it ridden? etc.
