    I have a chance to buy a 2005 1100 Classic (8,000 miles) for 5,500. Only one owner, owner is 50 years old (so I figure well kept). Bike cover, mustang seat with driver and passenger backrest, windshield, saddlebags, driver and passenger floorboards, luggage rack, heel toe shifter, and engine guards.

    Is this a good price? Anything I should look for specific in that year model?

    KBB list this at around $5100. The mileage is low (IMO). Any add ons or farkles will not be reflective of pricing. As to say anything aftermarket or added on to the bike is not figured. Do they have all the maintenance records for your viewing? The Mustang is worth $400+. Heel,Toe shifter is standard on Classic's. Truthfully with those miles I doubt you will be buying any problems but again you are the one that has seen and heard or possibly ridden the bike. It's still your call and money.
    Be Safe, Merle

    I forgot all about NADA, and on there you can add accessories. Said $7,115 with all the add ons. Sounds like a steal to me.

    Edit: $7,115 is the price for a new bike, NADA does not have values for used 95 1100's

    personally if it was me i would buy it. its hardly even been run-in, i have a 09 650 classic had it since May and have put more miles on that than this owner has put on that 1100 in 5 years. i think its a good deal but still your decision. good luck.
    here in Aus the same year bikes with some mods are going for around $10,000

    Hope you asked the guy to take it off the market till you show up in the morning with a wad o'cash!
    That's a good base price, but the Mustang w/backrest really would have sealed the deal for me. Seems the seats just don't get enough attention on resale. Shame for what they cost!

    I am not bringing it home yet. With me being in the military, the rules are super strict on safety stuff (I really dont mind that much). My MSF course is next weekend, getting my license updated on Monday, and picking up the bike the following weekend. But he said he was in no rush, he is more than happy to hold it for me.

    Good. I know you're required to take MSF, but I'm glad you're taking it.
    Now see if you can place a deposit with receipt!!!!!

    He said no deposit needed, he is in no rush. He is also selling a 650, all the money going to a boat, and he doesnt plan on buying that till summer time. Now only hope he actually holds it!!

    Sounds like a GREAT deal. I think you'll be pleased with that purchase.

    Unicjclizd, as an Army vet and fellow Texan, thanks for your service. Sounds like you're getting a great deal.

    Ride safe, watch out for cagers on cell phones, and thank The Man Upstairs for every safe ride.
