Just so you are aware, accessories (such as saddlebags, windshield, etc...) don't usually add much to the value of a bike.

Useless is what the KBB is actually. If you want to know what the banks would put the value of the bike at use nadda book values.

Even then, it's pretty much a "best guess price" if looking to sell.
Ya never know, ya might be able to find the person who just HAS to have that particular year and model and is will to pay more than what it's actually worth.
Then again, there might be no one in your area that will want to pay more than a couple hundred $$'s for a 20 year old bike.

Exactky wkrizan, Working for a used car dealership to bring home some extra cash a few years back NADA was the only way to go. The Kelly Blue Book isn't even looked at any more.

According to the NADA high book is $1600, but like posted earlier if you get the right person looking you could get more...pics of the bike would be helpful in helping us determine the actual worth...but remeber that anything over 1600 and the buyer will need cash because the banks won't loan over 1600

I was going to post the same thing, so instead....

"nuff said".

The reality is stuff is only worth what people will pay, and with so many people hurting for jobs and money, it's not what one would call a "sellers market".

Another good way to judge things is do some research and see what other same and/or similar bikes are actually selling for.

There's two guys near me trying to sell to VN750's for $3500 and they have both been for sale for 6 months or more now. In the meantime, people listing the same bikes at 1000 to 1500 are moving their stuff.

Good luck.
