Selling advice, please

I bought another bike Friday night ('02 Triumph Thunderbird) so will be selling my '01 Vulcan. I'm debating whether to leave the Vance and Hines Cruzers on, or return to the stock pipes & goat's belly. I don't know if there are more prospective buyers out there interested in a quieter bike, v. the V&H pipes. Plus, it seems there are always folks looking for the Cruzers. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you in advance. (the '01 has 11,000 miles, sissy bar, and appears a 9.5 out of 10. Was going to put it up for $3100 with the stock pipes.)

how much would you sell the v&h pipes for? I might be interested in them if you sell them seperate.

Personally.. I'd sell it with the stock pipes and offer the Cruzers as an additional option. If they don't want them then you know you can always sell the cruzers to someone else with no problems (provided the price is right of course)

You may also want to rely the same to a potential buyer, that if they decide they want to try the cruzers and don't like them then they can be easily resold. Make sure you point them to the VN750 groups as well!

As usual, Dianna is right on the money. In most cases, accessories don't add value in resale. But selling those accessories separate will net you some of your money back.

BTW, I do want that LED board...

Usually mods don't really add much to the selling price. It's always going to be better to return the bike to stock as much as possible and sell the aftermarket parts individually. By better I mean the bike will appeal to a broader range of buyers, and net you more $$ since the aftermarket parts ALWAYS sell. Plus it gives the poential buyer the chance to mod it "their way" which may be the same as your way, but you did it (not them) so it's not the same...
