May sell my 919

I have an '03 919 with Yoshi's and a PCIII. It only has 451 original miles on it, and is mint. It's stored in my living room now, as it has been every winter.
What's a good asking price for this bike?

Now why would you want to go and do a goofy a$$ thing like that. Sounds like you just need to make more time to ride it!

Strip the pipes and the PCIII and sell them separate. NADA puts you between 4 and 5K, but it's best to look at cycletrader for 919's in your area to get you on target.

P.S. This is not a good time of year to be selling a bike in Cleveland. You'll do better in May.

You're storing your bike in your living room? Wow, a man after my own heart.

Let me guess, you're single right?

Nope. I'm married. The Missus has been instructed that cold weather destroys bikes and therefore wastes money. It adorns the main room.
I'm lucky, huh? That's the good news. Bad news is that if I want another bike I have to sell the 919 AND the Vette. See? I'm not that good of a negotiator. In fact, I'm wondering how the heck this is happening....

Maybe a Night Train, maybe a V-Rod. It's a business decision. I insure a large H-D dealership in the Cleveland area. When in Rome......

I have a Harley Deuce (supposed to be one of the best handling Harleys) as well as the 919- the Harley is like driving a dump truck compared to the Honda!

Yeah, I know. I traded a Sportster for the 919. It's like Rosie O'Donnel vs. Paris Hilton.

Hey, the 919 does not have a big flabby pu$$y like P-Trap Hilton!
