I have tried to sell my T-Bird 2015 like new on the Craiglist and Cycle Trade, but not much response. I know this type of bike only some mid age people who like classic design love it. Could someone recommend where else should I post to find the right group of people to sell? I live in Bay Area of California.

I just bought a 2015 LT off Facebook marketplace. FWIW the guy said he had it listed for 6 months so be patient.
TB is a beautiful beast, congrats! I love it, just don't have time to ride cruiser. But at least I have own it for a while, it still is the most beautiful cruiser I have ever seen. :smile2:

I sold my 2012 TBird in 2016 when they were still in production. It don’t remember but it took way longer than 6 months. I live in Reno and someone from Canada bought it. I came way down in price after it became apparent that the thousands of dollars in mods (Big Bore, Progressive suspension, etc.) didn’t matter. Try ebay and craig’s list.

Can anyone tell me where the classified ads are on this website? All I can find are the rules for posting a classified ad.

Thanks!

It's to keep scammers off the site and other trolls. Since you joined you could have posted a comment once a month and gotten the 25 posts. I don't make the rules, but seems easy enough to follow.

I have the same issue right now. I live in SW Florida. I get almost zero response from Cycle Trader. Has anyone had better success?

Cycle Trader is a good place, its the heavy cruiser bike market and more directly these Triumph models are tuff to move without losing you shirt. I was offered less than 5K for my LT on a trade last year. Hate to think of 2020 pricing. You're better off keeping it

Can't keep it. Had surgery last year and my Doc says my riding days are over. I hate watching it just sit there on the battery tender. :|

Put it on eBay. Yes you will pay a fee, but eBay reaches a wide audience for selling. I've sold things on eBay that I couldn't sell on local CL or other sites. If you don't want to deal with an auction, just put it in as a classified ad.

I bought a Rocket on ebay from Baxter Cycles and paid for shipping. It was a one of a kind. When I sold my 2012 Bird in 2016(?), it took a long time. I sold it on ebay as I did my 2004 Rocket. Be prepared to take a beating. That’s how it goes with Triumphs, especially out of production ones. You could have upgraded the entire thing to pure gold and it wouldn’t matter.
