Wanted to pick your brains on pricing my 95' 916s p8 monoposto. I know the market is down, but I'm looking to pick up another italian machine and I fear its time to let her go. Anyways what's she worth if I put her up on Ebay?

Bike is mint..i mean mint mint. All original plastic

11,200 miles
Verese built (Will also include a second Verese frame in sale)
PVM 10y wheel
Ohlins Front suspension/Radial Brembo brakes
Brembo RS full floating front rotors
Drilled rear rotor
CNC clutch basket
STM slave
FBF windscreen
Black Widow Exhaust (rare)
Carbon airbox/runners/front and rear fender/swingarm cover/sprocket
Nichols flywheel and oil breather
Radial Clutch/Front brake with braided lines
Bike cover/Pitbull rear stand

Basically thats it...any idea if its better to just sell the aftermarket stuff?

You can more than $6K for your bike, the buyer of my 95 916 got $12,500 for it when he sold it. He did a remarkable job presenting it both in words and in pictures. It helped that I sold him a top notch bike that I put over $11K in upgrades. It was a special bike that a collector would have wanted, I'm sure of that. The bottom line is presentation, spread the word in as many media sources as possible, offer freight prepaid on shipping because when was the last time you heard a seller offer free shipping on a bike? I haven't shipped a bike across the country because I didn't have to, but I did offer free delivery in a 400 mile radius. This brought two bikes I sold up on buyer's short list and eventually because of this the bikes had more exposure and they sold to buyers outside the area. Yeah, it cost me in fuel and time, but it was a nice drive.

Your bike has some awesome upgrades on it, present it properly, detail it and it will sell to the right person. I would part the second frame though.

That is not worthless. $6k still buys a lot today in the used world.

The bike/luxury toy market is in the craper. Keep her for another ten years, then, maybe it will be worth more.

We all ahve "sob" stories pertaining to the market.

I got a cherry 1999 Porsche 996 Carrera, new crate motor, new crate transmission, new wheels and full Blistein suspension, spotless car, with perfect original paint, all these parts are less than two years old $23k in upgrades (all OEM) parts nothing weird. the car costed $24k three years ago, and now for the drum roll; the Frickin car is worth about $17k in today's market out here on the west coast, if I'm lucky.

I've seen;
1 year old GSXR 1000's @ $5-6k
999's @ $5k
916's out here all the time @ $3.5k -4.5k

The list goes on and on. Suck it up and keep it.

My 996sps has not been driven in over a year, I got $32k+ in it and it's worth about $7k (on a good day)

Reality Bites,
Mark

A few times over the years I thought about selling my 748... never ended up doing it since it costs very little to keep it (insurance and registration are a drop in the bucket) and the 6-7k (all docs, 1 owner, tasteful upgrades) I could probably get for it is not worth it.

I'd rather let it sit in my garage and take the occasional ride on it than sell it to some squid who's going to wrap it around the nearest telephone pole.
