Looking to sell
I need some opinions. A little background, WindRider left me sitting on the side of the road. I was in a traffic jam, and while the temperature needle wasn't in the red, one of the hoses under the tank blew out and all of a sudden I was in a cloud of steam. I suspect that one the hoses was bad/dry-rotted or else it popped off of the fitting.
My wife has decided that "something newer" is in order, and that we shouldn't "sink any more money into her," but I am going to need to put the money from WindRider toward it. I want to stick with the VN750. So I wanted to get opinions on what a fair price would be for her.
She is a 1985 VN700, in more or less good shape with a few exceptions. She needs the cam balancer replaced, a replacement head gasket on the rear cylinder, fan switch, fork seals, coolant hose, need to check the impeller function, replacement of the final drive gasket...And probably a carb adjustment.
What do you all think would be a fair price range to sell her "as is"?
