Default need advice

Hi all.

I am looking at a 2006 Kingpin deluxe with 6K miles. It has a very unique custom paint job that ran the owner 3100.00. How much more should I expect to pay (if any) for this? Does it actually increase the value of the bike??

Thanks,
Keith

I wouldn't expect it to raise the price by that much. How long has it been painted like that?

it had the custom paint on the magazine so it must have been painted shortly after he bought it. It also has lots of chrome added.

If you took that bike to a dealer for trade in, they probably wouldn't give you a nickel extra for it.... So I would say in general, no. But, if you like it enough to light cash on fire for it, that's all that matters.

An item is worth what someone is willing to pay for it--what are you willing to pay Keith? The end of the riding and selling season is drawing nigh and if he doesn't have any other buyers on the string, you are in the driver's seat. Check the KBB and make your offer, remembering that you can (and should) start low and come up from there.
IMO, what one adds to a vehicle can detract from the selling price, depending on one's taste. No matter what he paid for the paint and chrome goodies, its still a nine year old bike. Give him a low ball offer and see if he bites.

You have to ask yourself. If you had 2 bikes sitting side by side, one with the custom paint with chrome and the other stock from the factory but in the same condition otherwise, how much more would you be willing to pay for the customized bike? Does the paint increase its value to you? It is worth only what someone is willing to pay. Good luck.

Loan value may change from the accessories (apprx $.25 for every $1.00 the parts cost) but wouldn't increase for the paint. This pretty much means if you're going to finance it at higher than bank value you would have to pay the difference between purchase price and bank value.

I had a troop once that had a car that was worth about $300. He put about $1000 into the stereo and thought he had a $1300 car. In reality he had a $300 car with a boom boom stereo...

This is a good way to judge just what the bike's upgrades are worth to you. With that information and the KBB you should be able to determine how much to offer. Any more than that is a dream by someone who put his money in the wrong place.
