What would be a fair price for a 2002 HH Splendour, single-owner, run around 70000kms, no insurance ? Bike has been lying idle for couple months and at first look needs some basic work like front/rear lights not working, idling adjustment (and maybe a basic service), odo/speedo not working, brake/clutch adjustment etc.

Hello,
what should I quote for a 2005 oct, pulsar 150 electric start, black, done 60000kms, single hand, proper services all done at bajaj service centre, 3 month old amaron battery, tyres fairly new, only used for commuting to office and home a total of 11kms per working day.

Service advisor asked to get the piston rings changed for some 6000 odd rupees, since white smoke was being emmitted while throttling the engine hard.( I need some advice on this part)

Otherwise the bike is in good condition no major accidents only small dents and peels here and there. all electricals in working condition, except speedo. Can post photos if any body is interested.
Thank you

IMHO not more than 9k .
-The bike is 11 years old.
-High mileage;Has the engine been re bored anytime before?
-Insurance pending
-Plus you will have to get those minor repairs.

Around 9 to 10k as already posted by another member. But are you sure you want to buy this and get the works done? Better to let this slide and look for a better example.

Market price is around 15-18k. Based on the severity of the speedo issue (is it just a part replacement or entire console needs replacement) you might expect a few thousands plus or minus.

He had got some work done at HH A.S.S. a year or two ago which cost 8K - not sure of it was a rebore. Many Splendour owners in Chennai have been suggested this job by the A.S.S. and have got this done, but IMO it is a con-job.

The seller decided to ship this to his home-town for his brother to use. So, not buying this. I needed a bike that I could leave for 2-3 days at train-station parking-lots and given the pathetic condition of these lots, I did not want to buy a new bike - thought an old one should be good enough.

Thank you Abhinav, could you also advice me on the piston ring issue. During my last service the service adviser said the rings have worn out since white smoke was emitting when trottling hard, however during idling and normal running the smoke is not visible. He quoted around Rs.6000 and told me that some whole assembly would be changed.
in your opinion should I get this done. If I get this done would the value of my bike decrease considerably, if I want to sell it off in a few months time.

3 lakhs is what I suggest. Come February you should be able to buy the Street 500 for 3.5

The thing about the superlow is that it is a starter bike, once you buy it, you outgrow it pretty pick and move up the Harley ladder, so there are lot of superlows for sale

If i were in your place, i would sell off the bike in as is condition as it would not increase the value of the bike in anyway. And if its identified that there has been engine work done, the value might decrease by a few thousand rupees.

Hello Somu_john,

See you bike is already 8 years old & repairs of approx Rs. 6,000 will not increase its re-sale even value by Rs. 5,000. I will definitely advise to dispose off the bike as it is currently. It is an endless game to get the 8 / 9 years old bike in perfect condition.

I will suggest to mention the as-is condition of the bike to prospective buyer & let him decide on the exact price he has to offer.

Thanks,

Default The "Used Bike Price Thread"

Folks, Need your advice on how much can I expect for a RE Classic Chrome 500 - Oct 2011 - Registered in Bangalore. Done 5500 kms. Run in perfectly. Looks as good as it was in the showroom.

Going out of country for a couple of years. So undecided whether it is good to sell or hold it. Any advice is welcome.

I happen to have a test ride and a clean inspection of the vehicle last weekend,it seems that it has front controls and feels more of a cruiser than city ride.The negative part is the seller does not have original mid controls with him ,the bike will be sold as is.The HD superlow Seller is hell bent on 5.4Lakhs INR.Team Bhpians and Harley owners Please advice....

Its presently nearly 7 lacs on road and what he is asking is a very genuine price. Anything less than 5 lacs will not be possible as far as I know the Harley resale market. I lost a a very good 5 lac Harley due to bargaining. Had to settle for a new one.
