Mine was only a year newer than the one in the link and I got a dealer to pay me $3650 - almost exactly what kbb.com had as a wholesale for it. Add a couple/three hundred for tires and he's got almost $4k in it.gat803 said:Thats way too much bread for a 10 year old scooter.
Keep looking, there are better deals out there.
I love my 98 but thats too much for one. I passed just recently on a 99 with only 3200 miles for 4,000.00 ( I decided to keep mine )AverageJoe said:
I was about to say offer them 4000.00 firm and no more. This should include TTL AND make ready. If they balk then you walk.rickbb said:Depends on what part of the country your in. Some places thats considered high, others low, still others bout right.
How many are for sale where you live? Few, then thats not a bad deal, lots, then it's too much.
Are you willing to buy one over ebay and wait months to find just the right deal? If so you can get one in the 3k to 3.5k range.
Want to ride right away, then go for it, start by offering them 4, meet them in the middle.
The price for any used bike, no matter how old or it's condition is based on local supply and demand and how badly the seller wants to get rid of it.
Thats more than I was willing to pay, but I was in no hurry at all. I shopped around and got one on ebay for only 3, show room condition, lots of add on's.
Only you can decide if thats too much or not.
I was thinking the same thing.rickbb said:Depends on what part of the country your in. Some places thats considered high, others low, still others bout right.
my experience has been just the opposite.......... Kelley BB is way off in left field ..... NADA is the used car/motorcycle bible!Aeromark99 said:[ kbb.com in my experience, has been pretty accurate on most bikes and cars I've ever looked at or sold - much better than NADA IMHO.
You will. But out of curiosity, why go for an Aero over an ACE? They're about as close to twins as you you can get in the Honda lineup.AverageJoe said:Thanks for the responses everyone. There's no way I'd pay $5k for an aero, I was just seeing what everyone thought. My max would likely be $4k, but I'm a very minimalistic person so I'm hoping in the next 6-8 months I can find a stock aero for about that or less.
I guess I'll have to stick with my ace for now (which is probably a good thing since I just bought it 3 months ago :lol: )
The 98-02 aero's are 1100cc, the 98-03 ACE's are 750cc. Other than that, you're right, they look very similar.Aeromark99 said:...But out of curiosity, why go for an Aero over an ACE? They're about as close to twins as you you can get in the Honda lineup.....
Sorry Joe - for some reason I thought you had an older, 1100 ACE. :shock:AverageJoe said:I'd like a larger bike (at 6'2" the 750 is a little cramped), I like the shaft drive and the sound of the single pin aero.
