1999 Legend (Fair price)

Hi All,

I am in need of some help in determining a fair value of a bike I am looking to buy over the coming weekend.

Its a 1999 Legend, 7k miles, no mods and in excellent shape. New tires and battery and the pictures he sent of the bike look very nice. Owner is asking $3400 and I know without seeing it in person its hard to determine but I thought I would ask. What do you think is a fair price is??

Also, are there specific things, other than usual used bike things, to look for in a used Legend??

Thanks in advance.

If it's clean that's a good deal.
I doubt you'll regret it.

Seems like a decent price. I'm asking $3500 for mine, almost the same mileage. My bike does have a handful of accessories though that are worth a good deal extra (extra pipes, saddlebags, sissy bar). Come up to MA and buy mine instead!!

Pretty low mileage, sounds like a good deal.

First off thank for all the responses.

Just got back from looking at the bike. What a piece of JUNK. The seller completly misrepresented it and the pictures really did not show all the issues. Front fender was a replacement and wrong color, rust and pitting everywhere and it had obviously been in an accident. So I ask to see the title and it had SALVAGE all over the top of it. When I aked him about it, he said he just realized that he had forgotten to tell me about the salvage title. What a jerk. So the search continues.

Did you look at my bike? You won't find a cleaner example anywhere, except maybe on this forum. MD isn't that far, and I can assure you that what you see is what you get. My pictures don't lie haha.

Offer him $500.

If you're in Olney, maybe you can pick something up at British and European Classic Bike Day tomorrow.

Accessories really add little value to a bike when you are trying to sell it. You are better off selling them seperately.

According to the Kelley Blue Book, the value of the 1999 Legend is $2,485. Since I bought a 1999 Legend last year with only 9,400 miles on it, I learned a few things to consider. Because the bike has obviously sat for long periods, it may have some problems develop just from not running. Mine had to have the carbs rebuilt and the air filter replaced. My air filter was in bad shape, crumbling, and that caused the carb failure (the bike was running sick then). I was advised to use Sea Foam in it, which I did, and it ran better for a short time. Then it got worse and I had to have the carbs rebuilt and the filter replaced for $513. On the other hand, it's a rare, special interest bike, so I personally value them higher than the book value. Just some food for thought. It's the best handling bike in the twisties, fun factor is high. Read the forums on this website about experiences with the Legends; there's a wealth of information there. Bottom line, what is the bike worth to you?
