Can't speak for anywhere else, but around here a VTX1800 with low miles in excellent condition is a $4500 to $5500 bike all day. Since they are all fuel injected, year doesn't seem to matter as much as spec/trim level and mileage. Nice bikes...I would like to own one . This particular bike is probably worth the money if it runs well, you are handy enough to fix anything wrong yourself (including rust and paint) all the parts are there. You have to figure your going to do tires and battery at a minimum to get it roadworthy. That's $500 right there. Then there's fluids and filters and plugs etc. jwinkler has it right though...you need to know what to look for if you are considering taking on someone else's project, and expect surprises. (the ones they didn't mention to you)I don't know pricing on these bikes, but it can't hurt to throw an offer.
