Thanks for the opinion. That is exactly what I was thinking. One can only ask for a "collectors" premium if the bike is totally stock or at least has all the stock parts with it. Looking all over now, I see that many are asking 5K or greater though. Even in the mid 6's, which is what they cost new...nuts:eek1. And this is suppose to be the slow time of the year for selling bikes! Quite honestly, I am looking for a bike to ride vs collect. If I can't pick up a nice W for 4K I will probably look elsewhere. The pre-08 Bonnies have decent proportions with their smaller tanks. The kink in the exhaust is just a huge visual drawback. Even that look like it can be mitigated though. I've seen nice '07 T100's in the 5k range.
