Default How much should this bullet be sold for?

So the bike is a bullet 350 machismo.Whats so special?Its registration is KA 20 Q 1 . Yes ONE!!!.Now my cousin is selling this bike.Its in beautiful condition.How much could he expect to receive for this bike.We were planning to target some rich bike afficiando and we were expecting about 80-90k. Would anyone be crazy enough to pick up the bike just for the number.Would you;if you had the money?

Na, You can get a VIP number on a new bullet for slightly cheaper cost, back here in Delhi..! But I rather go for the Bike than the Number..! So Ideally nothing more than 50-55 K..*conditions apply

Nor would I pay even a rupee extra for something as trivial as a number. But then, there are many guys who've got rich daddy's money to squander and wont mind paying hilarious sums of money for the stupidest of things. So here's wishing u get ur hands on one such guy...

20-30k extra for something worth around 50-55 k just for a number - add it to the being EXTREMELY optimistic book.

I don't think you'll ever get 90k for any bullet period... Heck, it's not really worth shelling out that much on new ones, let alone second hand ones.

a what? 90k? I sold my Machismo A350 for 25k 2000 model. Even had two silencers. Check out my garage.

90k all the best

emm, ok, how much will a 6month old amby cost? got my point? its has very bad resale value, unless you get some dud to buy it

this is the real Machismo of the 90's but still resale value would be max 35k since its maintained well.

i doubt any Bullet guy would shell of even 70k just for a number.

in a country with a billion u could find many. just put up the bike on some mag Auto India etc and may be u could snare the jerk.

My esteem sports the number " KA 02 MK 3" its 2003 model.... Would you pay extra for it???... I definately wont... its a perk to the guy who buys it... but in Karnataka or the whole of south India single numbers are no showoff options... but in North its like a status symbol... dont know why yet???? can some one please explain to me why a single number is so expensive up north..

I bought the number "3" as it's my lucky number... thats all...
