For those with a short attention span, I'll cut to the chase. I've decided to sell my Honda CB 400F Supersport (pictured below) and am posting in an attempt to figure out how much to ask for it. For those that care, the story that brought me to sell it is the bulk of the "story". Carry on... Hi guys! I'll start this thread with a little background. Once upon a time, long, long ago, there was a young couple named Randy and Teresa. They dated for 3 years and had plans to get married. Then, as often happens with couples at that age, they split up. Randy (yep, that be me) had worked during the summer break from college and saved the money to purchase an engagement ring. Once we split I used that money to purchase my first real street bike, a VF700F Interceptor: And thus began my lifelong obsession with motorcycles. Well, not really the beginning, but still... So anyway, we both went our separate ways and never crossed paths again. More on this to come... The years passed, and motorcycles (and women) came and went... A few years ago a friend talked me into purchasing an old neglected 1976 Honda CB 400F Supersport as a project. The bike had around 10,000 original miles had never been crashed and was mechanically sound. Once I got into the project I discovered that the bike was actually in pretty good shape after a LOT of deep cleaning and going through everything. It still needed a lot of attention and replacement of smaller items. I managed to find a complete NOS exhaust to replace the rusted through original. New brake lines, rebuilt carbs and other assorted items, and a ton of my time spent on details had the bike back to original, running and riding like a champ, and looking like this: Then time marches on. newer bikes enter and the much loved 400 (nicknamed Fifi by the ex) sat neglected, under a sheet in the corner of the garage.... Now, back to Teresa and Randy.... In true fairy-tale fashion we flash forward 26 years and they reconnect for the first time since splitting all those years ago. First they just talk as old friends catching up. Yet coincidentally, they are both going through the dissolution of their current relationships. Over time they begin to talk more, and then after a while decide to meet to find out if what they both seem to be feeling is real.... It seems that all through the years, neither had ever gotten over the other. They had both always been haunted with what may have been, and the regret for mistakes made. We both assumed that the other was happily married and living out their lives in peace, and yet that was far from the truth for either of us... Long story short, we're getting married next year! Always in the past, "motorcycle money" stayed in the "motorcycle pot" and bikes were only sold to finance something within the motorcycling hobby. But, now I have some expenses to plan for, like engagement rings, etc. And I started thinking about the things in my garage that I really don't "need" anymore. AND, since I used the engagement ring money to buy a motorcycle all those years ago, it only seems fitting that I take that money back out of the "motorcycle pot" to pay for her a ring now. So, I've concocted a plan to sell off some of the stable. I started with my ex-step daughters CRF70, which sold yesterday, then last night I started getting the ex-MrsRandy's TTR125LE ready to sell. I have a few other things in the works, but sometime over the winter I plan to get the CB400 out and start going through her and get her ready to put up for sale too. She ran great when last used so it shouldn't be more than the usual stuff to get her roadworthy again. Of course I'll take better pictures once ready to list, but for all intents and purposes, the pic above pretty much is how she sits now. I'm posting this thread because as I started thinking about selling some of my bikes I realized that I didn't know what some of them were worth. Of course I'll research elsewhere before selling, but I figured Advrider would be a good source of info to begin with. I know I'll never get back what I put into it, but I do need to start somewhere. So, my question is, what would be a decent asking price for this bike now? And secondly, other than a local craigslist ad, what would be a good place to list this bike for sale in order to reach people with an interest in classic Japanese "sporty" bikes. I don't really want to do the ebay thing, or worry with shipping it, but I do need it gone sooner rather than later. Thanks in advance for any advice or input! And for those that care, yes, it does appear that fairy tales can come true... Here's the lucky couple back then: Yeah, this was the big hair 80's. And here we are just a couple of weeks ago, the day after I asked her to marry me: I may be a little rough around the edges, but my love is as beautiful as ever.
