After watching Craigslist for the last couple years, waiting for a good deal on my 2nd bike
Ive noticed a good low mileage bike that is several years old, but with everything up to date: brakes, tires, maintenance, windshield, saddle bags... is about $3000 if the bike is several years old.
It doesnt matter if its a 650, 950, 1100, 1300... or even a 1600 Road Star. They all sell for about the same price if they are turn-key and ride away, and the owner is moving or no longer riding.
In fact, Ive seen some scooters, Vespas, and the newly available Honda Cub is a little over $3000.
I dont completely understand it but thats what Im seeing where I live. I got my 2000 Royal Star with 24k miles for $2500 and all it needed was a new front tire, and a bottle of Seafoam.
