I don't know about the miles, but I wouldn't add anything to the basic value of the bike for the mods/options. Those simply reflect his ideas and preferences, no reason for you to pay for them.

Depends on your perspective I think. That's only an average of 4,500 miles per year so it's not truely a high mileage bike, but at the same time so many HDs were bought by guys who were sucked into the HD craze a few years back that never really rode them much after they bought them, that you could easily find one that has 1/3 that many miles. Are you capable of doing your own wrenching on the bike or would you be taking it back to a dealer every time something goes bad? Not making a suggestion one way or the other here, just giving you some food for thought. We all approach these decisions differently. Have you looked around quite a bit in your area at other bikes, or is this one being considered only because it was conveniently owned by someone you work with? Don't rush into a decision until you're confident it's what will work for you.

I paid 10.5k for my 2001 with 19k. No TP but chrome'd out. I'd say it's a fair price. You see a good amount of high mileage (80k+) on this site and still kicking. It's a 100th bike, that adds value.

Looking at 03's on cycletrader and chopper exchange, this looks to be about the right price, might even be a little low, but thats compared to other peoples list price. There are allot of extras there that if you don't want you could resale (example tourpak, seats and cover) and recoup some of the investment. As for miles, as long as it's been serviced properly and the guy did not dog the bike, you should be fine. As previous stated its not allot of miles per year for a bike of this age.

Dont let the milage scare you off especilly of he ca show the maintenance records. These motors are made to run for a while not just sit in the garage. the price seems like a good deal.

I would not be worried about the miles, especially if he has records of service work. The accessories are a plus if they suit your taste and wants, but the tour pack is a $1,000 add on that would be figured into a retail price because it's not considered to be an aftermarket part. Personally I think $9,000 is a reasonable price, however three days ago a HD dealer offered me $8,500 trade value for my 2005 RG on a $36,000 CVO RG. My 2005 has about same mileage with "98" cu in motor, six speed trans and everything imaginable done to it, so apparently I'm out of touch with today's pricing.
