Since when does Kelly Blue Book value mean anything? A bike is worth what someone will pay. I've been watching prices, and they're not that high - even with the high gas prices. Heck, I only paid $5,300 for my 2003 VN1600 Classic last year, and it was in pristine condition with only 7,900 miles. I tried to get $2,500 for my 2001 VN750 last year, but there were no bites. I had to drop it to $1,650 to sell it. Only had 12,000 miles on it.Kelley Blue Book retail value is $3465.
