what it's worth

I recently paid $3995 for a '96 with 4,600 original miles, amazing 
custom paint job, new tires, factory luggage, and full V&H SS2R system.  
I would have paid more, because I love the bike so much, but the reality 
is the former owner had given up on his listings because of a lack of 
interest.  I don't understand it.  These bikes are worth more than the 
bank and the market seem to indicate, but unless you find someone who 
really understands what you have, the going prices are pretty low.  I 
agree that $2500 - $3000 is probably fair.

You might make a bit more by parting out some of the extras.
