What a beautiful bike! If you have the original parts, put them back on and sell the mods separately. You should get anywhere from 1/3 to 1/2 of original prices for the mods depending on condition.

Thanks Qdog. I was thinking about that but I don't want to Frankenstein the bike in reverse. I'll leave it the way it is and if someone wants it then fine if not then fine. I'll drive it around and maybe someone will like it and make me an offer. If not then my kids can have her.

I'm not too familiar with 07 models.
Does it have any options like cruise control or ABS?
I know somebody looking for a bike like that.

I agree and dis agree to all, It's worth what everyone is saying, some where around 10k. On the flip side, It could bring what ever anyone is willing to pay for it. For someone it may be worth more with everything thing being done to it the same that they might want it. IMHO if you want to get the most for it ( takes a little more work) but list it as cash plus trade. Example some one may offer you 9k plus their bike that may be worth 3k plus, than you sell it and you get more in the end.

You are learning the hard way that all the extras are not really worth much when it comes time to sell the bike. I sold my 2008 road king classic last year and got 10900 out of it. It took over 8 months to get that price. The 2007 is a less desirable bike as it does not have the Brembo brakes and ABS or the 6 gallon tank as the the 2008 and newer ones have. However if you are not in a hurry to sell, list it at a price you can live with and then just hold out for your price. I had a lot of low ball offers along with their opinion on why it was only worth x amount. Some one out there will fall in love with it just takes time to find that person.

I know you said you did not want to part it but I would sell the tour pak separate, they are very popular and easy to sell. Not having it on the bike is not going to make or break a sale, then you can drop your asking price accordingly.

Well I got another idea. How about I trade it for a nice pontoon somewhere around the Chain O' Lakes are of Illinois?

Pontoon's are nice but like the bike seasonal and a lot more involved to winterize than a bike. I say keep the bike and let your grand kid's squabble over it when your gone or better yet ride it. JMO

I agree. That's a beautiful bike, very well maintained which is obvious just from pics 1000 miles away so I can imagine what it looks like in person.

Not sure what you're looking to get out of it but I agree with the figures above and I can also tell you that no dealer (at least anywhere around here) will utilize KBB, NADA, or anything else. It's supply and demand and that's how they base their pricing. Sure they'll look at some tool HD uses for determining base value, but after that it's supply/demand.

All the bling, well look at it like buying a house then putting in a pool, then selling it a few months later. You'll get just about nothing out of that investment. I would keep it for the kiddos if it were me and you don't need the money.

Nice bike! If you don't need the money keep it for your kids- it's never going out of style!
