Try to realize that the 90s are over, you don't have to wait a year or more for a new Harley - the showrooms are full of them and they're discounting nowadays.
That means that your 15 year old "glide" that needs rings is NOT worth $12,000.
The "BLUE BOOK" value don't mean **** if nobody wants your ride.
If you bought your bike as an "investment" then you're stupid and It's not anyone's fault but yours and that your expectation for turning a large profit has not panned out.
People looking here and on ebay don't stop looking after the first page, so stop posting your bike every day....we SEE IT ! We just don't want it or are not willing to over pay for it.
YOUR bike ain't really all that "RARE" ! Using the "you don't have a Harley because you cant afford one" makes you sound like a bigger ******* than you really are.
They only started calling them "suicide shifters" AFTER you had a choice.
Find an old mag. to find out what a "chopper" is/was then post accordingly.
Everybody knows the real reason your bike has a "SALVAGE" title, so stop fooling yourself.
"REV-TECH" motors blow up........often ! S&S Motors are better than anything "the motor company" ever made,but they are not "Harleys".
NOBODY is going to pay 20% under MSRP for your old rusty parts...take then to a swap meet or flea market but at a real world price.
The phrase "used to run" or Ran when stored" makes you sound like a friggin retard...They ALL "USED TO RUN" at some point !!!!
"LOUD" is not a measure of performance, ("SORRY but it's just NOT") nor is fringe, saddle bags, windshields, cup holders or matching helmets for that matter.
883s with 1200 kits are always going to be just that, 883s with 1200 KITS.
