Oh Daddy Likey

Just might have to pay these cats a visit and get them to stop puffin the Cheebah for a min to discuss this ridiculously high price - Bike was $17K brand new.......and if they want to play the card of "Extras" then I'll ask for the same favor to be extended to the Bonnie on trade in value (which we all know never happens)

I am a fan of the build and bike......just not the $16K tag

I like that bike! Someday I will add a springer in my garage. NOT that price though. Seriously, KBB says $7,250. Retail. Maybe $8K on the floor for that one, but not double that to $16K. Anyone buys that for that coin, needs their head examined!

Its a Whole Sale Shop that buys Repo Bikes and Other Trade In Scenarios (guys trade this in on a car kind of thing) so they are ALWAYS over priced - I like to have fun and say, "Okay then, well, my Bonnie stickers for $12.5 and has a ton of goodies too so you plan to give me $11.5 for it?" - I'd be lucky to get $8K on Trade, $9K private sell - I want to see what they mean by "Documented Build" as I have receipts for my shit too

Up North here, that price would be close to what it would be valued. I wish our market costs were similar, as I would like to have a springer softail for $8k.

Love that Springer front end! Surprised Harley hasn't released any new models recently with that classic look. I owned the last model Harley made with that springer front end, the Crossbones. Miss that bike and wish I was able to hold onto it!

Have you ridden the FTR1200 "S" model yet? I was thinking that it would make an excellent stablemate to your 2 retro Harleys.

The only reason I am thinking of letting the Bonnie go is the flat seat and zero wind protection has me only good for 50 miles or so......might be at a point where I need lower back support (like the '98 Dyna Seat has) or a windscreen.....or both like the Heritage has - I like the FTR but that is a $17K bike to get the one I want........too much $$ for what I would use it for.....a 2nd round towner and fast bike jaunt ride

If I was going to spend too much money on an older bike, it would be this one!
