bike/hack value

12

ok, so I found a used bike with a hack, how would I value the bike with the sidecar?

year? Model? Condition? location? Competition?

Many factors contribute to value. Just not 'nuf info here to render a guess.

it is a 05 Yamaha road star with a California sidecar, I don't know the model of the side car, and I cant post a pic of it, but the bike is at capital cycles in Columbia s.c.

I found the bike on Capital Cycle's web site.

I see the dealer hasn't posted an asking price. I'm afraid I don't know enough about Yams or Cali sidecars to venture a value. Perhaps others can.

thanks, they are asking $9000, and I don't know if it is high or not.

Dealer prices are always high, IMHO!! Is there any warranty or accessories being thrown in by the dealer to sweeten the deal?

For comparison, perhaps browse the "Complete Rigs For Sale" section here on this web site. You can see what owners are asking for similar rigs. Factor in availability and distance and you can probably come up with what its worth to you to jump on this rig. You can also use the data collected to dicker with the dealer.

NADA average retail on the bike is only $3100. So that's giving 6k for the sidecar. Seems way high to me.

I would expect that a sidecar in good condition would add about $2K to the price of a used bike. One can buy a brand new sidecar for $6K so that dealer is setting his price pretty high, especially for an "orphan" sidecar!
