I wouldn't pay more than $2600. Don't let the add on's fool you, you could get that bike without the add on's for around 2100.

How much is he asking for it?

I would think $2500-2800 would be ballpark. I paid $4,000 for my bike when it was a year old and only had 600mi. So if you look around you may get a better deal. Mine was bone stock and not a scratch, thats the bike I wanted. Do the work yourself, you know what your really getting into.

But... the bike looks very nice and just bargain the dude down with cash in hand.

Good luck !

BTW, I would put the elephant ears back on if i bought it to get more airflow into engine area. Honda designed them for a reason. Or go with a Clarke/IMS tank that emulates their shape, directing more airflow into the head...cooling is a major concern.

Looks decent, I would maybe stretch to 2500 if everything is really nice, and these were mods you wanted, don't forget to give the wheels a spin, last one I looked at needed rims and spokes to ride nice on the road. (wobbles)

Sweet looking pig but unfortunately its only worth about $2k ish even with all the add ons. Thats the problem with adding a bunch of stuff to try to sell a bike....people (at least most) look at the bike not the bells and whistles.
