I’m looking at a few Vegas/Jackpots in my area that are pretty much all 06-08, under 20k mi and are between $6-8k. Trying to get an idea if those are reasonable prices for those years and mileage. Also I wanna know if there are any issues with those models that I should be on the lookout for. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

A Victory with the Freedom 100/106ci and under 20k miles is a baby ...If its been decently cared for the bike should be just about settled in and ready for MANY more miles. In my a opinion, around $6k seems reasonable .Going above that price might be stretching it(not that I agree, but Victory price values went in the shitter when Polaris closed the company ). Anyway, its hard to say what a particular bike is worth to you...If its solid, a bike you love and ride to death, then it might be worth a few extra bucks up front. I'm not up 100% up on the models you're looking at but I don't think there's anything to look out for other than the usual on any used bike purchase.
I believe from 06 all model Freedom 100\106 bikes had the 6 speed transmissions. Are you buying from a dealer or are private seller?

Prices are really quite all over the place. I would go on cycletrader on check the prices there for reference. They sound a bit on the high side but as stated is it worth it to you. I just sold a 04 Kingpin with 44k which looked like new for $2800 I thought I should have held out for more, but then again I had a buyer and another bike already in the garage. I just purchased that bike, 2011 Kingpin for $5800, 4800 mi. off Ebay as the guy had to sell.
I would at least check the tires for wear as if they are not next to new that's at least $250 right there, Negotiate, I'd bet there are not too many buyers out there. Find out if they have aftermarket exhaust, air intake, and a fuel controller as these are the usual things that seem to get added right off.Those three could be easily $1300 or more depending on what you want.
Things to watch out for ....extreme POWER!

2011 Kingpin
custom paint
Ness fly bars
xbow exhaust
S&S air intake
Dobeck fuel controller
chrome floorboards
cruise control

2004 Kingpin
Victory performance exhaust
customized air box / K+N filter
LLoydz fuel controller
custom oil lines
custom led lighting
custom led third brake lights
Sold ..( my baby, still have some sellers remorse)


2011 XC
rpw exhaust
wiseco fuel controller
Sold

Buying from a dealer. The 2 I'm most interested in are an 06 C Ness Jackpot w/21k mi for $7500 and an 07 Vegas w/16k mi for $7000. I'm going to go for a test ride either tomorrow or Sat to see which one rides better/condition and then go from there, just trying to get an idea of how hard I should be haggling over the price without being unreasonable
