first off, thanks for the replies
The extras he put on it don't mean crap. If the bikes were selling for 16899 (CND) then you could have got it for 15K to 15.5K easily when new. I wouldn't give a dime over $11k for it and would try harder for $10k. Victorys do not hold their value that well, about the same as a Jap bike. The seller wants way too much and if he won't budge then move one.
yeah, I hear you for sure. I'm thinking he's not going to come down much from the 15,200 he's asking. especially seeing as he keeps saying the bike is brand new. NO, sorry, your bike is 2 years old, it was brand new before you put your shitty ass parts on it!
i would say it should be worth more than 11, but there's no way i would be paying over 13 for it. i would be happy with 12 though. interesting thing about the dealerships up here though, for some reason, there is NO negotiation on price. I tried to buy this bike new in 2014, i couldn't get them to come down at all. I could get $300 off of their demo model, that's it though. I walked away from it then, because I didn't feel like I was getting the best deal I could.
as for the extras, totally agree. I would pay more for the bike if he had these extras AND the factory parts that I could put back on it, but he doesn't, so i'll have to go find the factory parts and swap them out
sadly though, the majority of those are way more than the $15,000 the guy is asking for the local one, due to our horrible exchange rate. but i did find one that may just save me 5,000, and it's all factory, and still registered as new. been making calls all morning to find out the costs and PITA of importing a vehicle
gee if you bought one for 9k you would have 4k to spend on it and make it the way you want it.
Cobra 2 into 1 are poor performance pipes. Very poor
yeah my thoughts exactly. atleast the cobras are worth more than the factory ones, so when I rip them off to put the xbow pipes on (that I want) i can sell them for more than the factory pipes are worth...
