Sell my GL1000?

Post by clarkekw » Sun Jan 02, 2011 5:03 pm

I have the unfortunate process of getting a new hip this year, I got a new knee last year, and may have to sell my '79 GL1000. I've been seeing a real contrast in prices for them. Does anyone have any idea as to a fair price?
It has original Hondaline hard bags, a full Windjammer fairing, AM/FM/CD/SAT radio, new clutch and cables, new brakes and overall in great condition with 28,000 original miles. I drive it every day I can if the weather is good enough.
I love the bike and have taken several trips of a couple hundred miles. If someone can give me a little help with pricing on an antique like this let me know, thanks!

I sold my 1978 Wing last July. It had 39,000 miles, Vetter SS, AM/FM/Cassette Cycle Sound, Sampsonite saddlebags, ARE tail box, king/queen seat and original seat, driver/passenger floorboards with heel/toe shifter, tires/battery/timing belts had 1500 miles on them. It looked like it just came off the dealer's floor as new. Not a scratch or mark anywhere. Cherry. I put it in the paper at $2500 and my phone rang constantly for 2 weeks. The first guy who called told me he was coming with money in hand without even seeing it first. One dealer said if he had it on his floor he'd put $3500 on it and wouldn't take less than $3000. That sounded high to me but I didn't know. I put $2500 figuring that would give me wiggle room to dicker.
I hated to get rid of it. I'd had it for 26 yrs. It had been parked for nearly 5 years due to an back injury but I loved it. I just had too many bikes and one had to go.
