Re: Sell LT or Fit It?
His problem, as I see it, lies in the fact that his bike, of that vintage, has a street value of maybe high 5s or low 6s....assuming that it is in great condition. This one is not, and considering that the bike needs a clutch, seals, suspension, and possibly an engine overhaul, the realistic value, as-is, will be significantly less, assuming he can even find an interested buyer. I don't know what his finances are, but if he's looking to get enough money from the sale of his present ride to partially or substantially finance a newer one....he's going to have a case of 'the shorts'. It's a very tough call....but, unfortunately, very bank-balance driven.
