Price of 92 SE

Post by hap2 »



Is 4K (USD) about average for a 92 1500 or what range is average?

Location seems to have more effect on selling prices.

for the '92, I have seen them bought for $1500-2500,
and at the same time, I have seen a very pristine '88 that was immaculate pull $5,000
( it is all in the eyes of the beholder, and how badly they want the first primo machine they have seen )

if possible, get service records... and if you can, look under the plastics to see if any of the electrics have been chomped on, and crimped, or badly twisted and just left raw...
If the wiring harness is not in pristine condition, I would walk and find another one.

the check list is fairly long, but the first thing you want to find out,
will it start from cold over night while the starter button is pushed, or does it have to wait until you release your finger? that means a AGM ( fast starting ) or a wet cell battery ( slow start or no start )

then, will it idle smoothly at 750 to 1000 rpm w/o any surging?
the actual speed is determined by the idle cable next to the gas tank cap.

I am thinking that you should be able to find a '92-'94 in the $1500-$3000 range depending on condition

I just set up a nationwide search on SearchTempest.com and capped the upper limit at $5000 and lower limit at $1000 ( to preclude small parts stuff )



https://www.searchtempest.com/search?se ... d%7Cmcy%29

you can run this search daily if you like.

Change the Zipcode for the area of search.... I have it centered in the middle and 2,000 mile circle.

Thanx for that John. The bike is actually mine & IF I wanted to sell(which I really don't), I'm wondering if 4 K USD is low, or average

I gave $4800 for my '93 Aspy two years ago, It was low miles (43k), always garaged, ran perfect, everything worked, and pretty much immaculate. Lots of aftermarket, probably $1000 of stereo equipment, all the SE add-on lighting, High output Hitachi alternator, Progressive 416's in the rear, extra tall windshield, luggage rack, backrest and highway boards. I thought $4800 maybe a tad high for a '93 but considering the mentioned farkles (not chrome junk) the bike was worth it.

I keep finding stuff "That's not stock for an Aspencade". Wouldn't be surprised if the forks have Progressive in them too, will find out whenever I have to service them. Can't tell by the ride, this is the only 1500 I've ever ridden.

Before I bought this one I looked at a 2000 SE, 63K miles, at a consignment shop. Asking $5300. Absolutely beautiful bike in blue. It was $300 above my "budget" but I would have bought it on the spot. Went to inquire, was informed it sold an hour before I got there.

Also looked at an '88 - asking $4500. Ran smooth enough with the "choke" on, but after 10 mins running I took the choke off and it immediately stalled. Blue in color, some paint fade, stored outside with a cover. I passed on this one, and so did many others, 6 weeks later it was STILL listed for sale. And this in the spring time.

So these were Denver area prices two years ago, 1500's were ranging $2500 for junk to $6000 for really nice, my guess is your '92 SE could easily command a $4000 sticker in Denver if it qualifies as ""Very Nice" to "Really Nice".

Have a look at the ad & see what you think:

That 5300 is CAD which is about 4000 usd

Should I ask more?

Prices in Canada tend to be dramatically higher than in the US, particularly if you're not in a major city area.

Just a few years ago, I paid $6500 for my '97 GL1500 SE, which was a bargain at the time. In much of the US, the same bike could have been bought for half that.

So if I ask 4 K usd (about 6 K CAD), I'm doing good?

I don't really wanna sell it, but since I got rear-ended, it ain't that enjoyable anymore, but I can still do it
