At 85000 miles and no warranty it’s gotta be damn cheap. Even cheaper if a private deal. Here is a link to FaceBook Market Place for some local Silverwing listings. Maybe that will help you in determining its value. HTH

Yes it is. That doesnt mean that the bike still doesnt have more miles left, but lots of things could be worn out or it may have had a rough life. No way to tell unless you ride it and go over it in person.

Whatever the going rate for one of these bikes is there, I would offer maybe a quarter of that. And if you arent ready to do some wrenching on it, I would pass it up for something with much fewer miles.

I wouldn't pay more than $500-600 for a scooter with that many miles and it would have to look and run very good. It might be a good deal as is but I doubt it. But I'm sure one could bring it into good shape with no more than $1000 in parts at most.

There have been many Silverwing owners reporting more than a 100,000 miles on their scooters but that usually requires plenty of maintenance over that period.

I bought an Elite 250 many moons ago with 70,000 miles. Guy wanted $500 for it. Ran great, had all service records from dealer, and all paperwork for owner serviced items. It got me into bigger scooters for a good price. After 2 years of using it to commute I gave it to someone who wanted a parts Elite 250. I didnt want to rebuild the headset, look into the rear mystery leak or wrestle corroded brake parts. Still worth the $500 to test the water as I ended up buying a new Honda Helix not long after. So price is very important.
