Several years ago I purchased a 2002 VRSCA with 2 miles. I was thinking that this being a first year model that at some point this may become valuable. Can anyone offer an opinion regarding a asking price today or what potential this may bring in the future? Thanks!

Whatever the market will bear.

Just remember. It's NOT a 67 Camaro or 64 Mustang....

You can buy them all day long with under 5K for 3800.

I have an 03 VRSCA

Potential buyers may/will be looking at costs to get it safely road worthy above and beyond the purchase price.
Example: ALL fluids drained and replaced.
The brake fluid flushed,refilled and of course the brakes bled.
The stock tires replaced.
Any other miscellaneous things that may need to be done due to the motorcycle sitting for 17 years.
Labor for the above being performed by a reputable shop.
All this should be taken in to account buy the seller when setting a price.
Others opinions may vary.

I agree with your assessment regarding the maintenance. However, putting it on the road will have a very negative affect on the value. Someone mentioned that this bike could be bought with under 5K miles for a very low price. I agree 100%. However, how many can be found with 2 miles?? I'm thinking this bike needs a museum or a special type of collector. Either way its not easy to put a value on this bike!

Well my .02
It’s not an 01
Not a 03
2 miles is still under 5k.

What the market will pay is what you’ll get for it.

You’d have on heck of a task at hand trying to convince me that you have a rare gem on your hands.

It isn't a collectors item if that is what you're hoping for.


Many other bikes would have more long term value.

Off the top of my head:
1981 FXB Sturgis
1983 XR1000 Sportster
1977 XLCR 1000 Sportster

Just like the people that bought "Anniversary Editions".
Parked them.
Then waited for the $$$ windfall that never came.

In 2032 you may be right.

You've RUINED it!!!! Now it'll NEVER be a collectors item.


Unless you could add the value of being owned by a badass wedding planner..

My Ol' Lady deserves the medal. She did abot 50K of it two up. Yellowstone, Glacier, Rocky Mountain, Beartooth, Chief Joseph, Tuscon, and a mess of other stuff. Never bitched until Yellowstone II. Then said" let's go buy a bigger bike. Got the 2012 FLSTB ... 55K later she says lets got get a 16 RGS FTRXS. I was like .. yep baby good plan.

She is a great Ol' Lady. And one if the few that knows what Ol' Lady means and what is expected. 1960s and 70s rider. Not afraid of two up two side by side 1/2 second interval dragging the primary in the corners.

Ride it or drill it often as possible. The idea of it being collectible means your grandkids might make money on it.

As far as drilling ... always send that shitt on wore out and needin to be sleeved.
