NEED SOME HARLEY/GSXR ADIVCE

I got a guy who wants to trade a 87 1100 sportster harley with a few upgrades for my 06 GSXR . Would anyone do this straight up? I don't know about harley's or cruizers in general, so I don't know if this is even a good harley to start with. HELP

a bone stock 87 1100 sportster is worth about $3k.

is your GSXR pretty much totalled? if so then it might be a fair trade.

Well if you think your GSXR is only worth 3g's... Its a good trade. If I were paying straight up for the Harley I would offer 3 grand tops if it runs perfect.

no! My dad always said 2 things about them
1. They are beginner bikes/girly
2. They dont hold any value.

Unless he has like $6000 in upgrades on that sportser you would be crazy to do that deal!!

well he claims to have 3000 in upgrades, new clutch, tires, cams, but he said the speedo is out and doesn't know the mileage. Which made me a little sketchy. Mine is in great shape, so I don't know about harleys and he was claiming this holding value bullshit

Yeah, if your bike is still mint, it is a deal. Lets put it this way, if you are selling your bike in 3k and it is in mint condition, I'll buy it today.

And how do you count a new clutch as an upgrade? Ask yourself why he needed a new clutch.

LOL those arent upgrades....I mean like rear tire kit with a 280 rear, new wheels, raked front end, aftermarket gas tank...btw im not laughing at you but at the mere fact that he finds those upgrades worth advertising

Yeah, I hear ya about the clutch. He was really wanting to meet today as well. Just seemed overly eager. My bike is no garage queen, but I def would not sell for 3k. That ho will rot in my garage for that change
