Like ecose said, you need to add the history, miles, etc. But no question you have a gem, and all the docs add too. The more facts you have - if they are positive - can add value.

Go to www.kbb.com and go down to motorcycles - it says retail of $3,710, wholesale $2,535, but lots of variables in that. Low mileage is a plus. When run last? Running condition then? How many owners?

Go to www.nadaguides.com too.

Market is not good right now, but you never know - may find someone looking. Lots of folk like the 500 better than the 650 - lighter, easy to handle, etc.

Good luck! If I had the cash, I'd take it!

History i'm not sure. I bought it from a guy selling it in the classifieds and he got it from someone that owed him money and couldn't pay. I believe the odometer was replaced at some time so i'm not sure on the mileage. My mechanic said it has great compression and that everything looked great and showed little signs of use. The triumph dealership said they haven't ever seen one so clean. I've spent several hundred dollars getting this thing running smooth. It runs like new now. Everything is original on it. One sold on ebay for $5k and it didn't have all the correct parts like mine does. Thats about all I know about it
