I have a trade offer
New uncrated 1998 Harley Heritage Softail.
I need to establish a value.
Whatever value you decide on, be sure to deduct cost of new tires and any age-rotted lines/hoses.
Is there a value having an crated 1998?
I had a 98 heritage. No idea on value Those were amazing bikes though.
Leave it in the crate.......take it out......just another........
LIKE a ok wine, w/ cork still sealed.
Now bury it ..........in a few decades, when values have shifted.....it will be someone's Spanish Fly
planning to leave it in the crate and put it on BaT, but they want a reserve
regular heritage or heritage springer? (huge difference)
either way you would probably get the most dough selling it to someone in the land of the rising Sun.
the Japanese value our (vintage) stuff more than most here.
Germans have been buying them also. Is it worth the 5k trade value?
To me, it would be.
I've never spent any time on BaT fwiw
My approach is a little different. I just do a search on Cycletrader. Right now there are 7 '98 Harley Heritage Softail Classics for sale. Asking prices run from $4500 for one with 29k, to one for $8900 with 31k.
Here's a link to the search results-- LINK
Of course, asking prices are not selling prices.
I didn't know folks still used cycle trader
What does the little nickel say?
I called the sales manager at a local dealership and he never returned the phone call.
Didn't you hear....they are jam packed w/ BMW, Honda & Yamaha riders wanting to go retro
There is a 94 on the Detroit craigslist asking $8500. Ebay has several 90's models, anywhere from $5000 - $12,000. I guess you would need a serious collector to want it to make it worth a lot. There are a bunch of $5000 HD's out there if a buyer just wants a bike to ride.
I passed on the deal, too many unknowns.
