You will notice that today's retail value doesn't differ much from the original MSRP when it was new. The MSRP on my '84 FXR was $7,699. I paid $7,000 for it 20 years later. It will probably be worth the same in 20 years(or more).February 8, 2006
1988 Harley-Davidson FXR Super Glide
Suggested Retail Value $7345
Trade-In Value (Good Condition) $4930
I'd probably pay $8-$10K for one but that's because I like deals. With only 2,000 miles it would be around $10K locally.Anyone know what a 1988 FXR standard 2000 original miles goes for?
Not doubting you but check out ebay. Wrecked Dyna's and FXR's bring at least $6K. I work in insurance for a living. I talked to a claims adjuster the other day on that subject. He told me that when the insurance company sells bikes to the salvage yard the *** bikes go for 8-10 cents on the dollar salvage cost. Harleys go for over 50 cents on the dollar wrecked. Huge difference.springer- said:At a recent bike show in Augusta Maine, there were 2 FXR's with average milage for $5900 and they didn't sell. I think 8-10 G's is very high.
i gotta ask.....WTF do you do that you can afford 10 friggin bikes. and how do you ride all of em.dswansbiker said:Last year my local dealer had a close to mint 89 fxrs sport with 20k miles. Pretty much bone stock and offered it to me for 6500. I should have taken it, but with 10 bikes already I think the wife would have had a coronary.
You forget...to them(women), anything with 2 wheels is a "bike" or "motorcycle". I have a woods filled with at least 2 dozen "bikes" I've picked up at auction sales or flee markets. All run, but many only cost me $25 to $75.dashooter said:i gotta ask.....WTF do you do that you can afford 10 friggin bikes. and how do you ride all of em.
Just because he said "10 bikes" doesn't mean they're all $15,000 Harley Davidsons.I should have taken it, but with 10 bikes already I think the wife would have had a coronary.
