Whats it worth?

Hi guys. Toying with the idea of selling my GL1500. Nice shape , 50,000 miles , front rebuilt with progressive, good tires and paint, new Corbin seat in 2018, no issues.
Any idea what it should sell for??

the introduction of the 2018 DCT Tour has had a lot of effect on older bike sales.


if there are no issues with yours, I would try for $5,000 and be willing to come down if the buyer appears to have cash in hand.


NADA is not even offering a suggestion:

KBB is showing $5,195 so my initial thoughts are backed up.
that is a dealer price, so your buyer is going to try and get a 20% discount off that.

KBB cut the price in half for "Trade In" which we know is common with stealerships.
$2,765

oops, sorry 'bout that,

didn't make much of a difference... 600-700 which will disappear in negotiations with a buyer.

I still think that anything close to $6,000 asking will result in zero responses from buyers.

never hurts to ask, but............. gotta be willing to move if you want it gone.

I am seeing a lot of folks on Facebook saying they bought 'new condition' gl1500s for under $3,000............ what year, dunno,

the problem is: the gl1800s are now available at $6,000 and in new looking condition.... yes, they are a bit older, but for a guy with cash in hand, he is going to juggle FI or carbs.

I paid $7,000 for a 2002 gl1800 3 years ago from a dealership.

I agree. 4 grand will probably get it out the door but understand how folks feel like their bikes are worth more. Especially if they just put a grand into it for new tires and a tune up.

Also, a lot of people think extra chrome makes it worth more, but the fact is, it probably makes it worth less to many potential buyers.

Of course, Bike is worth twice what I paid for it back in May of '87.

Look on craigs list and see what is available and what they are going for. Supply and demand. I would guess starting around $4000 if it is a turnkey bike, nothing needed. There is a 97 SE with 40,000 on it near me for $2500. great deal but when you think most older 1500 wings have never had the timing belts changed you can add about 3 hours labor at a shop to change them, unless you cab do it yourself. Tires can be another $450, so it depends on how much you have to put into it once you buy it.

Someone new to touring may hesitate on an older bike if they call their local dealer and they won't work on it. My local Honda dealer won't work on bikes over 10 years old. My 2001 slid through* due to a long relationship and that the 1800's hadn't changed in years. That said, I had an '88 1500 I purchased used from the dealer w/60k and loved that bike putting another 60k on it before falling in love w/ the "new" 1800's.

* yes I know simple things can be done yourself, videos are out there and 'Wings are dependable. Some don't want to, and some don't have the mechanical aptitude to work on their bikes. I was in for fork seals and a rear caliper warranty service that had not been done.

Good luck with the sale. I bet you find somebody thrilled to get a 1500.
