I was offered $8,000 by a dealer last week. That is trade in value according to his black book. Books for $9,800 according to him. If this was an 883 I would see where you would be coming from, but a 1200 Custom, c'mon man, that'd be highway robbery and you know that. I guess the poor saps that are letting theirs go for $6500 must be in a real bad shape. Thanks anyway........I guess.
