1993 Heritage Softail Value

I bought a 1993 Heritage Softail in April and I am thinking about getting selling it because my wife does not like to ride with me and she wanted her own. We bought her a 2007 Honda Shadow for a starter bike and she didn't put 100 miles on it, and now would like to sell hers. So I am asking for opinions on how much my 1993 Heritage Softail is worth. There is only 17,566 miles on it, 1000 miles on the rear tire and all synthetic oil. It comes with the cover, 3 helmets, battery tender, and heated air dryer. There are some other bolt on goodies and a Stage 1 kit. Is $8000 out of the question?

You can ask $8000 but It will likely go for less. You can buy a 10 year old twin cam for $8000 now, and with the end of the season approaching, there's bikes for sale all over.

You'd do better to wait until spring, (if you can) and Ebay the other stuff separately instead of giving it away with the bike. Technically, you'll be doing just that.... Used helmets bring nothing. The other stuff are good Ebay items.

It's a nice clean bike, but the truth is, it's 18 years old and the market is down.

You're going to be lucky to get $6000 out of it.

unfortunately i think this will be more realistic than 8k. i was just on craigslist looking at bikes and almost had a stroke at the prices, for 10k i could buy a 05 suzuki hyabusa and a 01 road king both less than 10k miles if i bargain a little prolly get it cheaper. i'd sit on it if i could at least til spring. the market is flooded with toys people can't use/play with or afford these days.

Sounds like the only thing you need to sell is the passenger backrest.

I just paid $6600 for my '92 Softail Custom with 13,500 miles. And I think I got a good deal. Yours should bring at least that, and probably more like $7000 to $7500. It's a good looking Heritage with relatively low miles. I wouldn't sell it myself, but these are tough times.

Realisticly your Heritage is worth between $5 and $6

Thanks everyone for your input. I am thinking I will hold onto my Heritage until I sell my wifes Honda in the spring, because it would really piss me off if I sold mine and then she kept hers....LOL. I will probably hang onto it over the winter and list hers first in the spring.
Great forum! I really enjoy reading this forum compared to some other ones that I go on.

I agree!

Why would you sell a bike like that?

If you must sell it though, remember it's supply and demand which dictates the price you get for it.

Someone just might be looking for that bike, and they will pay your price. It's great looking bike and I'm sure it runs perfectly!

Good Luck!
