This is completely wacked. When my girlfriend took my old bike, she wanted to list hers for sale. Since it was a little '83 Honda CM400 and she wanted $1500 I suggested that she'd see no action on it and should wait until spring. I also suggested that she reduce her price.
She was firm. Well, despite the fact that we didn't have pics yet, on a lark I posted on Craigslist for $1500, listing the low insurance cost on the headline:
1983 Honda CM400 $30 insurance per month $1500
I had 4 calls in 10 hours, and someone came and paid full price in cash the same day.
Holy crap. SO - if you have an inexpensive bike with a smaller displacement, feel free to try the same approach....they're like wolves, I tells ya.
And if any of you have an 1980ish Honda CM400ish bike, I can send you three people's email addresses who are looking.
