Not at all. Kids grow up and move out. Both mine are well past age 20. My oldest is getting married around Halloween and is in the process of buying his first house.As a married guy with kids, it will never be parked in the living room lol, but I imagine that was tongue-in-cheek.
It is certainly about bike lust and exclusivity. The resale value is just a minor justification.So, after a thorough visual inspection, I'd just buy if it ticks all the boxes. Unless of course this isn't about bike lust because you can't get it out of your head.
If it isn't about your passion for this particular model, but a prospect of not loosing money on the purchase, well.....this conversation is pointless in that case.
I'd guess you'd be lucky to get 80% of the purchase price for it in 5 years, and that's if you don't ride it much.
I agree 100% with parking it in a living room. I procrastinated on this 916 piece of art and lost it.If you're buying as an investment.....there are far higher returns in other mediums. If you're buying because you love the bike and want it for you collection, who cares what the resale value is? When you don't ride it anymore, park it in your living room as art.
Sold for $11,000.Here is one on bring a trailer with under 2k miles. It has a few things on it that are questionable. Currently at $5,995 with one day left at no reserve. Might be a good deal depending on what the final bid is but I would have to look at it in person before buying.

I saw this bike on ebay last night. Is it me or does this bike look like it's smashed in a little in the front...
i would snatch this up in a heartbeat if it was clean titled! Feel like any resale is so low even with a rebuilt bike.
Yea, I was watching it as the bidding ended. It got more than I thought it would.Sold for $11,000.
Yeah, if it was local I think I would consider it more. Asked the guy for some details on the repairs and he didn’t respond. Said it was just used on the track. Salvage title bike, rode hard and infrequently used. Lots of nice parts though.I saw this bike on ebay last night. Is it me or does this bike look like it's smashed in a little in the front...
