Accessories are a valid selling point; they cost money to add to a new bike ( although I question the value of the wider rear wheel).True, the SELLER never gets his investment back on accessories; the BUYER on the other hand pays a fraction of the new cost. See if the seller has the original parts that were removed during installation; if not, bargain the price down. The mileage is low for the age of the bike; it probably sits in the garage instead of being ridden. As far as some corrosion here and there; this seems to be a common complaint on Triumphs in general. For example, my bike has some a few spots of corrosion (a white discoloration) on the aluminum engine cases/side covers. This is probably due to the cheesy clear coat wearing off; an appearance issue at worst. The valve lash adjustment isn't due until 12,000 miles; at least you know that someone hasn't messed with it yet. If it hasn't had the oil and filter changed, use this to bargain the price down even more. It sounds as if the seller is desperate for money; show up with cash in hand. Of course, check it out from A**hole to appetite before you buy it. I would make an initial offer of $4000.00 and bargain from there. Good Luck!----James.Accessories don't make the bike. You have to look a the year specifically and the number of miles. Reread the description again closely. Rust on bolts, no valve adjustment and rust on side covers. I think he meant to say engine covers, why? Engine covers are aluminum and don't rust. No original parts, I think I'd pass.
i saw the same bike on cycle trader for $5200
i'm in the market
