Letting go of my baby, but how much to ask?
I'm letting go of my 2007 bonneville. I've done a lot to it, and taking very good care of it. Now I want some compensation for all the work I put into it, but I want the price to be fair and I need to move it fairly quick. Kelly BB lists around $5200 or so and I want $6200. I think I'm asking too much, but what should I ask where I feel like I am not losing all the hard work and nice upgrades? Some friendly advice input would be helpful. And I still love the bike, but we have a new baby and I just never ride it. It is more about letting go of what you love sort of thing I guess. Here is a cut and paste from the ad:
1) Air injection elimination kit. This keeps the pipes for continuing to blue and stops the popping sound on deceleration.
2) 19 tooth sprocket (I also have the 18 tooth one). This makes the top end a little higher. The engine no longer screams at cruising speed.
3) Center stand. This was pricey, but it doesn't come stock and you really need it to any kind of maintenance.
4) Iridium spark plugs
5) motul full synthetic oil
6) Euro fork gaiters for the vintage look
7) Front fender number plate.
8) Fuel tank knee pads
9) Dart Flyscreen. This keeps the wind off your body. Good for long trips.
10) Helmet lock
11) Adjustable clutch AND brake levers
12) Hagon classic shrouded shocks
13) Hagon progressive fork springs
14) Almost new brake pads front and back
15) Gel seat
16) Bolt on lucas style front and tail lights. Vintage look and not the silly star trek the next generation lights.
17) Brighter headlight
18) Idiot light led conversion kit
19) LED speedo light
20) LED parking light
21) High power LED brake light
22) Easy start headlight control module (leaves your headlight off until you flash your lights. Helps give some extra cranking power)
23) Luggage spools
24) Renntec sports rack (strait from England)
25) Removed the rear baffles. It's not exactly louder, but has a much nicer purr. Probably frees up the exhaust flow a bit as well.
26) an UNUSED magnetic tank bag by roadgear
27) A xena disc brake with alarm
And I also have a chain brush, chain wax, a performance reusable air filter, and probably some other goodies I can give you. I've taken very good care of this bike and I want someone that appreciates it to have it. I hate to see it going to waste. No tire kickers please, and have money in my hand if you want to ride it.
