I am looking at an 01 Speedy with 3800 miles. Its got the Triumph Carbon Fiber exhaust and a seat cowl. He wanted $5350 for it (way to much). I talked him down to $4700.
Is this reasonable? I am not looking for a steal because this is the first good lightly used S3 I have found in TX and am willing to pay a little more to not have to ship it from PA (BTW Why do all ebay S3's seem to come from PA??!?)
Thanks in advance for all your help.

This sounds like the one on E-Bay that just expired 'reserve-not-met' - the one with the ahem 'model' on it.

I think $4700 would be an excellent value for that bike and don't think that would at all be 'paying extra', to the contrary. I wouldn't actually even say $5300 was way too much either, considering the miles.

Now the T509 in Houston - that's a screaming bargain!!!!!

Sounds expensive to me.
I paid $5300 for an '03 two years ago. Had 3700 mi. and was in perfect cond.
Do some more checking around.

That's a good price for an '01 with that few miles. My '01 has 26,000 on it and I wouldn't sell it for 3800.

Yeah, it was the one on ebay with the...ummm... "model" on it.
I appreciate all of your help. I think I'll pick it up Thursday.
Now where is my bottle of "Skank-B-Gone" to wipe the poor thing down?
