What is it my SP worth?

Question.Strongly considering selling my 1995 900 SSSP #A92.

Wondering what is a reasonalbe price to ask.

Red
10,500 miles
Stock engine and carbs
DID gold chain, 39 tooth Renthal rear, standard Renthal front
ZG DB light smoke
FE high pipes
Sargent Seat
DP crankcase breather (blue)
Michelin Macadam 100's
Rear shock reworked by BCM
Service only at BCM (shims and belts)
Have used AGIP 4T 20 W 50 for all changes, every 1500 or so.
Comes with all parts to return to stock , pipes, passenger pegs, sprocket cover, breather, sprockets, chain, Dp windscreen, etc(except original tires)

You could eat off of this thing it is so clean.
Rear license plate bracket uncut.

To the moderator,it is not for sale as yet, just wondering what to ask for it.

Hi VTGPDUC,

Send me a PM when you know what you're thinking about price. I've been looking at picking up an SS myself, either before or after I sell my 872 (also a BCM bike )..

Thanks

If it is really as mint as you say it is, I would say you might be lucky to get $5k-$5,500 for it. Realistically though, you might be looking at b/w $4,500-$5,000 for it due to the mileage.

Due to the mileage? 10,500 miles on a 12 year old bike. That's only 875 miles/year. If it had much less than that I would start to worry it hadn't been ridden ENOUGH to keep it fresh.

I was thinking the same thing..
I put that mileage on in a year of weekends and we only get 5 months of riding weather.

I hope you get high five thous for it, but it seems the US-EBay market will only pay low fours... anything higher doesn't seem to sell.

Good luck! I hope you get what you expect.

I agree with you, but neither of you argued with my value I placed on it.

My idea with the mileage, (and yes 10,500 is not that much mileage on an old bike like the SP), is that buyers want a lot lower mileage than that for the price I was talking about, but if it is as clean as his is then he should be able to fetch that much for it.

Not all the mid 90's SS bikes were garage queens. The majority I have seen for sale fall into the 10,000 to 18,000 mileage range. I looked for 2 years before buying my '92 with 16,000 miles on it. Sure, there are a few you will find with something like 4,000 total miles, but IMO this does not boost their valve an extra 30+%. Machines need to be exercised and ridden regularly.

I think a very clean, tastely modified SS as you described should bring around $5000-5500. A lot also depends upon seller location and time of year. Unless you really need the cash now, don't be hasty to sell. The right person will come along and give fair valve for it.

Good Luck, Ed.

I think that Glockem is probably about right with the price. $5000 seems like a fair deal for all parties.

I know the miles are low, but I have other bikes that need my attention also.
Btw bike has a Regina Chain(GP) not DID. That and the decals should be worth another $20 bucks.
