First things first ..... Welcome to the site.

You can contact a local Honda dealer and inquire about recall information that pertains to your machines VIN. Other than that no issues that come to mind.
If the recall was not performed the dealer should take care of them at no cost to the titleholder.

Here’s a site that will give you a starting point on price by location. The ads come and go on a weekly rotation so they will be close to the seasonal price.

The mileage shouldn’t be a factor if the seller kept it properly maintained. The general appearance should tell you if the bike was abused or cared for.

With proper care this scooter will last well over 100K. Take a gander at the site below and scroll to the bottom of the page for the longevity of the different brands.

Good morning, wknox! Welcome.

Until I saw 77,000 miles, my response would be somewhere from $2,900 to perhaps $3,300. That's a lot of miles, so a lot depends on how much you know, or how much the current owner can document, the service history.

My 2002 had 6,600 miles when I bought it "as is" less than six months ago, and I knew nothing of its maintenance history. Perhaps I took a gamble, but I also paid very little (below the range I mentioned above) and decided that, even if it was poorly maintained, the number of miles on the bike reduced the odds that poor maintenance had resulted in permanent damage.

If this bike was poorly maintained, 77,000 is a lot of miles for related problems to accumulate. If the Swing was regularly maintained and is currently in relatively decent shape, you may have found a gem. Personally, I would look to pay less than $2,500, probably closer to $2,000. But I certainly wouldn't reject it simply because of the the odometer reading.

If its any help, I bought my 02 Swing in Sept of 2010 with 39000 miles on it for $2500. It had new tires, brakes, Kuryaken Grips, Utopia Backrest and Bestem top box, and Givi Windscreen.
