Thinking of Selling

I have had the bike since April of this year.. I absolutely love riding it, but I am just a little to long legged for anything other than a short ride. I do however finally have it running great. I have pulled and cleaned the carbs 3 or 4 times. Pretty much any issue it was having I have managed to fix. Its not in perfect condition on the outside. I did replace most all of the chrome except the few pieces on the exhaust that have some rust on them.
Its got new tires, new carb diaphragms, a new coolant inlet tube into the front head, I also installed a spitfire fairing and crash bars with highway pegs. Lubed the splines with Honda moly not to long ago, and the splines looked to have plenty of life left o them and where not dry in the first place. Its a 93 with the dark green and light green paint. Seat and exhaust are stock. It has just over 13k on it. Checked the charging system 2 days ago and all is well there, high 13's to low 14's at 3k rpms. The PO drilled out the baffles but the goats belly is still there.
It also comes with a 92 dark blue and gray VN750 with 27k miles on it. Its a complete bike that the PO said ran before her ex parked it before their divorce. She wasn't able to get a title with it being in his name but she was awarded the bike in the divorce papers so the bill of sale should be just as good. I just didn't get around to going to the DMV. Was having to much fun taking the better looking pieces off of it and putting it on the green one. But like I said its a complete bike as well and if for nothing else it makes a great donor bike.
Anyways I'm coming to you guys to see what you think I could get for the set or even just for the titled bike and maybe piece the other one out. I was thinking of starting at 2,000 and going from there. Lemme know if you think that's to high or to low.

The picture is blurry cause i have a crappy camera phone but you can see the bikes. The donor had the tank off but its all there.

Thanks for your opinions as always guys.

No suggestions? Would it help if I said I still have the new radiator cover still in the box it was shipped to me in? Anyways I may end up keeping it a bit longer anyways. Its just running to well atm and I don't know if now is the greatest time to finance that Harley I was looking at.

The market is down a bit this time of year, but I'd guess $2200 for both bikes, including delivery of the parts bike, would be where I'd start. That estimate is based on $1800 for the running bike and $400 for the parts bike.

Have you considered parting out the bike? Folks here are always looking for stuff.

I actually planned on doing that when I got the other bike. Take what I need and what I might need down the line and sell off the rest on ebay but I found a Fat boy I was hoping to get approved for a loan on and was hoping to have the money for the bike as a down payment. More I think about it the less I wanna rush into a new bike when the bike I have is running so well. Maybe I should start off parting out the other bike and then once I have the 20% Harley wants as a down payment from saving I can start looking for the right bike, so I don't have to go without one for any length of time.

I bought a Fat Boy in July, financed through the Navy Federal Credit Union, great rates and no downpayment. I was going to do what you are thinking about, but didn't wait to sell the Vulcan since the deal on the Fat Boy was too good to pass up. I have since sold the Vulcan to a Friend in Delaware.

What did you pay for the Fatty? how many miles/year etc...

The one I was looking at was a yellow 2001 little over 10k miles chromed all to hell for 10,900. Figured if I could get a loan from someone other than Harley so I could walk in with cash in hand I could work them on the price. Maybe walk out with a new helmet and some gear if I tried hard enough.
