Sort of considering selling my F since it really doesn't get used much anymore other than the occasional day ride. My GS works fine for my two-wheel fix as I find that I ride it a lot more (and a lot longer distances).

Looking for help on pricing-- Suggestions?

I'm NOT interested in parting it out-- too much time and effort went into it to make it the bike I wanted it to be, and to do everything at a level that was indistinguishable from stock.

Additionally, this is NOT a "For Sale" ad-- it's a request for information. If I sell the bike, I can sell my Kendon folding trailer as well, and thin out the herd of things with wheels that I own.

TIA--

Here's the list of what's on the bike. It's mechanically perfect-- everything works, and other than a few small signs of wear, it's pretty much pristine:

FBJ you're a wild man - I'm still trying to catch up with you on your R upgrade list - as always all the great things you did to the bike are great, but translate maybe into a 25 % return on your investment. Monday I tried to buy a crashed 2015 Muscle 6900 miles at Copart North here in Orlando - stock bike, both wheels cracked, forks broken, shocks, mufflers and fwd controls all damaged, rt. handlebar missing with brake reservoir, throttle, switch controls. Rt shroud, rear fender scratched all up, rt. radiator shroud smashed. Instrument cluster broken, throttle cables jammed in idle. No start No run. It got up to $ 4850 plus $ 1800 in Copart fees so $ 6650 plus approx. $ 4000 in repair parts plus approx $ 1500 in labor = $ 12,150 which is retail on that bike, without a salvage title -totally insane ! I just wanted the engine but using that logic your bike is clearly worth at least twice that, $ 24,300. Look at the advertisements for your year Muscle, average them out, add for low miles, add 25% of what you've invested in all those upgrades and there's your price - hopefully someone appreciates everything you've put into that bike, and pays you for it but what I see are idiots that fall in love with a crashed POS on the internet, and pay what they could have for a fine low mileage top notch bike like yours. Hopefully someone here realizes that and will come to the table for you but lots of folks are out of work now so its a tough time to sell - you might want to hang in there with it for a while till the market comes back - Good Luck ! (y):D

Hate to see someone else selling .....
Generally here in the U.S., the bottom has dropped out of the V market. All those extras? You may as well give them away, as they wont add one nickel to resale value. I find these facts sad, but its reality. Like another said, hold on if you can. I think someday the values will return to what they should be. Now, if you were in Europe, (maybe you can find room in a cargo hold for it, next international flight) that bike would easily fetch 20k.......

Yes, I agree. But place to sell is here in Australia. I bought my VRSCAW with 9000 K's for AUD16900, a plum price. It's now done 21000 K's and I would almost certainly get what I paid. Just added heated grips (something essential in Melbourne), new Pirelli's and brake pads. Already had a few additional bits, but nothing like the fly boy's masterpiece. Sold my Road King and now own this rocket. Best bike I've ever owned and I've had a few.

Keep it. Supercharge it. Have fun!
Fun? I'll stick with twin turbos.

549 hp, 564 trq at the crank with a MT, and it'll spin the wheels through fourth gear if you don't keep the DSC on.

Used to do the turbo but changed to supercharged. 696hp 620 trq at the wheels. They are fun.
back to your bike. I see prices all over the place. Most mods have very little roi. I see higher prices on FB and eBay than forums where people know the true value. Good luck with whatever you decide.

If you look for "The Modifications Begin" in this subsection, you'll find an entire thread with pictures.

At the moment, the bike is stored over at a buddy's house and he's gone on vacation for another two weeks.
