question about bike price

What's up everybody. I've got a friend that I work with that's interested in buying a 1996 honda F3 smokin joe edition bike. Its got 36XX miles on it. Seems to be in good condition from the pics I've seen and the guy wants 3900 dollars for it. My question is. He wants to know if that's a good price for that age/style of bike. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Book value seems to be around 2k. 3900 is the price of a post 2000 CBR.

That price does seem to be quite high. Another thing your buddy needs to think about...........with a bike that old with that few miles, it has more than likely been sitting for a few years. So, not only does he have to fork out the cash for the bike, but then more than likely gotta do quite a bit of maintanance to it and that can add up quickly on those older bikes.
Possible work/replacement:
Battery
Chain
Oil
Carbs/Jets
Tires
Misc hoses
Grips
Clean fuel system and possibly replace tank if gas has been sitting in it for 10 years
Plus, no telling what else it could need at this point.



Just my $0.02

Appreciate the help everybody. I tried tellin him that it was a little high for a 13 year old bike no matter what edition it is but he wanted to hear it from someone else.

The only thing that makes it a limited edition are the plastics. Which makes it a 14 yr old bike with 36XX miles. $1500 is a fair price IMO.

3900 friggin bucks? WOW. That is A LOT for an old bike. Especially with that many miles on it. You could get an 04 600rr for that kind of cash.
