Okay, I like the bike but after nearly four years it only shows 2178 miles on the clock.  The bike is costing me more than a dollar a mile just to insure it.   Rolling Eyes

Great shape.  Garage-kept.  Small hairline crack on lower fairing but otherwise virtually like new.  Seatback extender, mirror extenders, battery tender and Honda rack and tailbox.  It's hard to imagine but I like the stock windshield, which hasn't been changed.  

Replaced the battery this spring. Also have the pigtail connector (uninstalled) that allows you to add extra lights without cutting the wiring harness.  Honda SW shop manual also included.

I'm in Dallas.  $2900 obo.  Will get some current pictures later today.

Thanks,
Mark

I'm interested and can buy today, but I have a few questions and would like to see pics first. A quick video of it running would be ideal.

Re: the hairline crack on "lower faring." Does that mean the front cover or the floor skirt? Maybe it's a crack I can live with, but there is a huge price difference for replacing tupperware: $391 front cover vs. $55 floor skirt.

Any other scratches? Was it ever dropped? (I have a 2012 that is impeccable and would want the same for a replacement)

Assume you have a clean title? Original owner?

Condition and age of the tires? (what are the date stamps?)

For what it's worth, I think your price is more than "okay," it's bordering on giving the thing away!

Dallas craigslist today shows a 2013 with 1,100 miles for $4,500.

Also $4,500 for a 2012 with 12k. And there is a 2008 with 8k for $3,000.

Is there a reason your price is so low?

Original owner, clean title. Floor skirt.  No other scratches; never dropped.  Tires original.  Price so low is that I don't know any better! How about $3500?

"How about $3500?"

Haha, how about sending me 10% of the amount you get over $2,900 as a commission?

Seriously, I'm not going to pay $600 more than your original price because of information I gave you!

$3,500 is a great deal and I'm confident you can get that, or more. You're sitting on a great bike. Don't sell yourself short.

Look at the prices for "new" (i.e., 2013's, the last year Honda exported them to the U.S.) Silver Wings on CycleTrader and they go for $5,000 to $7,000 at dealerships. I'd put it on craigslist and CycleTrader for $4,250 and take $3,750 minimum.

Which would be, let's see ... $3750 - $2900 = $850 ... and 10% of $850 as commission is $85 for me! ;o)

Yep, I should ask more but I'll honor the $2900 price for anybody here. I don't give Craigslist asking prices much credence. A local dealer (where I bought mine) still has NOS 2013s listed for $5995 (sometimes $5495) with a new bike warranty, so $4250 would be a stretch, though dealer fees and taxes would add a grand or so.

"I'll honor the $2900 price for anybody here."

That's an honorable gesture and a fantastic price. I look forward to seeing pics of it.

Update: I gave this purchase serious thought and slept on it, waking to realize I already had the bike I wanted: a late model Wing in like-new condition. Mine was manufactured several months earlier than a 2013 and has 5,000 more miles than the OP's, and I've updated absolutely everything.

It's not right for me, but I still think this is the deal of the year. Change the coolant and brake fluid and you have a brand new Silver Wing.

Also, Mark the OP sent me a dozen pics of the bike plus a short video of it running. It's a beauty, in superb condition from top to bottom.

Bash-On,

This thread is almost from the script of an episode of American Pickers where Frank & Mike are looking for the perfect deal but only at a fair price. If they were to find your bike at $2900 they may offer you $4500 and be happy to buy it at that price. I think we are here to help each other so I offer this bit of my own experience. I paid $3500 for my 2005 back in 2013 and it had roughly 11,000kms on the clock. There were a few marks on it but nothing too serious. This was a great deal according to the many people I spoke with at the time. It is my first bike and I knew little to nothing about them.

Now If I were in Texas I would be inclined to come visit you and offer you a good price .... but your "give-away" price would be tempting.

Good luck with the sale!
Mike

Thanks for the words of experience, Mike!  Love, love, love, Nova Scotia.  Would keep the bike if I lived there, just for your gorgeous summers, and being able to ride to a Lobster supper most every night.

I obviously mispriced this Wing, but decided to honor the price for anybody in this forum (mainly because of the nice folks you all are!).

If you're interested in the bike please let me know ASAP as I'm changing the price to $3500 at 12:01 am (CT), Thursday, June 27. Thanks!

Bash-ON,
Please don't mis-understand me. My experience regarding Silverwings is nil in comparison to many others here. I'd hate to see someone take advantage of your kindness. Everything has a just price.

We have some nice roads for riding for sure. And most of them need serious repair. I spoke with a group of riders from the US at Peggy's Cove one day and asked what they think of our roads. The reply was "they sure keep you awake"

A friend of mine from here has a niece in Texas. Not sure where -- may even be in Dallas.

This summer to get here would take you through New Brunswick, Jay's land of fun and amusement. The CAT ferry from Maine to NS likely won't run this summer as there are border security issues with a new Bar Harbor terminal. The NS Government hasn't put enough money in it yet, I say sarcastically.

Good luck with your price correction.
Mike

Sorry, haven't logged on for a while. Had a sale but was informed by the buyer this morning that he is unable to complete the purchase after all.

Will send pics and video, Cathy!

Best,
Mark

Mark, you said in another post that the market dictates the price and you are so absolutely right. I just sold our 2004 Burgman 400 and got what I consider a good price for it ... fair for both sides ... but good. I could have listed it for 10% more but then I would be the one watching all of the other ads come down while ours was still up and not sold.

It is worth whatever someone will pay you for it and whatever you will accept for it ... all the rest is just talk and tire kickin'.

Scooters just don't sell very quickly around here either. I had my BMW C650GT up for sale earlier this year for $3900, 12,000 miles in excellent condition with heated seat, grips, top box, electrically operated windshield all the goodies. Didn't get a single serious tire kicker.

I was planning selling the scooter and replacing it with a nice used Honda ST1100 near me but I decided when you get down to it the scooter is just handier and easier in traffic. Once in awhile I get the urge to go back to a motorcycle but at my age and arthritic condition a scooter really makes more sense.
