What do you think? This is what NADA is showing for the Sportster.

First thing I'd do is mostly likely jump on NADA and look up the value of both machines. After I did that, if I was not comfortable looking over the bike for any known/obvious issues, I'd have someone I trust look it over. Then based off that, if I wanted to make the swap and was now comfortable with the deal, I'd go for it. Upgrades on toys don't add much value if any. (Only to you they do)

Never mind, I see as I was typing people were looking up the values for you.

There's no way.

In the real world, the going price on that Sportster is something like $2500 to $3k, assuming it's in good shape.
