Don't know if this is the right forum to post this question, if it isn't please excuse/or have adm redirect it. A friend of mine has a 2000 LT in good condition with 34K miles and wants $9K for it. He wants to know if this is the going rate for a 2000 model year? I have no idea since we don't have a dealer in South Texas so I thought of posting his question on our forum. Will appreciate any comments. Thanks!

I took a look on Kelly Blue Book ( www.kbb.com ) and found the below depending on what model it is.

Reference Point

I just purchased a Black 2004 LTC with 3600 miles for $12,500....just for a reference point.

It didn't have a scratch on it.

Recent 2000 LT Purchase

I paid $9K for a 2000 LTC w/35K miles last Feb. Loaded, lots of farkels. Some extras were older (like the GPS) and cosmetically the bike was less than perfect. But it came with a transferable warranty with 1 year remaining worth $500 and I believe the bike was well maintained. The seller (from this forum) also delivered from Houston to OKC gratis.

If I had it to do over, I would skip all the electronics (autocom, XM, iPod) in favor of a more basic bike for a little less money.

Knowing what you want and waiting to pounce is the key. Good deals go quick. On a 6 year old bike, risk is pretty much unavoidable.

RICHARDO,
Little high to me...When I was shopping for LTs I found one here in Austin with less than 2000 miles year model 2001 Tan but the seller demanded $11,000.00 I believe he never has sold it...So Low mileage counts for the high price..The bike you looking at has too many miles for the $$$.....Good friend should make you a better deal...there are better deals out there just shop...

BMW's dont sell quick here in New England

Since buying my 2002 LTC with 18500 mi for 10K in excellent condition this past spring Ive been watching the listings here in New England of all models of BMW bikes on Craigs list, The Want advertizer and news papers etc. What Ive notced is the BMW's dont sell quick which I would guess drives there price down , A couple I know of that are at or below the Kelly book value have been unsold all season. I paid $1100 below book value but wonder if I could have found a better deal

Nah, with that low mileage, you did very well. Congrats.

Good Luck

2000 LT price

Most serious LT riders put about 10-12,000 miles a year on their bikes so 34,000 on a 2000 model would be considered low miles. Since the prices on the new models go up each year, don't expect the older models to go too low. I think we are going to see the 99' model to bottom out at about $8000 and stay there. Here's basically (average) what the LT are selling for in the US: 1999- $8500 ( bikes in excellant condition with average or below miles)
2000- $9000
2001- $10,000
2002- $11,000
2003- $12,500
2004- $14,000

Good Luck! Ron Ray

$9K is a good starting place

It all depends on it's condition, the after-market extras, and maintenance history. The rest of course is time/chance of the right buyer meeting the seller. If it's Canyon Red, wow! :bmw:

My '99 had 57k on it with a pricetag of $8700. I offered $8000 and he took it without hesitation....damnit...should have offered $7500!

And to add mine - mine is an 03 - had 6289 miles, bag liners, autocom, flashing brake light, LTC version for $9745. The prices are "soft". I.e. if you are patient and look long enough, there is always a better deal somewhere. I started out looking at a local LTC with 14Kmiles for $12K. He eventually came down to $11K, but that's all.

Can't really say what the OP should do, but there is another example of a good deal out there.

Very slow market now

last year every thing listed sold withing a fairly short time. Earlier this year it started slowing. In the last 2 months I have seen several '05s selling in the low 14teens and even on at $13,500 (no extras).

The 2000-2004 are slowing as well.

$9,000 is slightly high it might sell but given what I just said above I wouldn't pass up an offer for $8,000 right now. The season is near the end in some regions.

Sale Price

Bought a 2000 Custom in August, 13,500 miles, $9000 from Milwaukee dealer. Private party sale should be less, methinks.
