I am sorry to hear this, why you selling? I would suggest starting around 6,000, but I would wait for the Vets on here to post

Great looking bike.

You may get a bit of a premium for the wheels, fender, maybe the air ride.
jmo but the bike is worth about 6K if it's decent mileage plus about $1000 for being a unique well built ride.

It's a buyers market and I think you can get $6500 for it but I know a lot more about the bagger values. Sometimes the right guy comes along and really wants what you've built and knows it will take time and money to get what you got and/or he doesn't have the skills. Others look just at price and see other '06 C's more stock for 5 grand, lots of them on cycletrader.

Others opinions WILL vary.

I hope you do well but from what I've seen you will get about 10 cents on the dollar for the aftermarket parts. The exception would be if you found exactly the right person who loved your setup. You would be better off taking some or all of these parts off and selling them separately where you might get 40-60% of their original value and then put back on the original parts if you've kept them.

G'day,

Vinish

Robert --- Really hate to see ya getting rid of such a successful project. And I bet you already know the HIT you get letting aftermarket parts go with the bike. I too would recommend selling everything special separately. Still gonna take a loss but not as bad. Hope you have some of the original parts available. I believe The Chief was going down the same road and decided to keep his X. Wishing you good luck which ever way you decide to go.

This is correct. Sad but true even when it's as well done as yours.

Unless you find the person that wants THAT BIKE you not going to get your money back. It is still just a "07 C, that looks REALLY cool. That's why everyone puts their bike back to stock when they sell. You may only get $750+ more than the next guy.
