Whats this Thing Worth??????
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hey guys, don't know where to post this(or even where its going to end up, as I post it now) If this isn't the right place I'm sorry. I fumbled around for 30minutes until i accidentally saw a new thread button. So again I'm sorry. Heres the story... Ive got a 2003 F350 Truck that someone wants to trade me a chopper for. I'm not really a Bike guy so I have no idea what they go for or their value. If you guys could give me some opinions on the trade, what I could expect to get out of the chopper, and how difficult it will be to sell if i decide to do the swap, I'd really appreciate it. Heres what hes told me about the bike.

Its an original 2008 Midwest show bike, with less than 500 miles on it. Forged by Jessie James assembled by Midwest and air brushed by DG customs! This one of a kind bike not production bike cost $100,000 new. It has a $9,000 Yogi bear springer front end a $20,000 DG paint job A $8,000 Revtech 100 4x4 engine $1,500 Ironhorse transmission. One piece forged frame that would cost $30,000-$40,000 for Jessie James to do. The only bolt on piece is a Jessie James original gas tank that cost $1,200 new. It has a $1,000 Dyna ignion and coil. Harley gold plugs, $400 Mikuni 44mm carb and air cleaner, Ultimate intake, $1,000 Paul Yaffe handlebars, $300 Harley Davidson hand controls, $1,000 Avon cobra wheels and tires. One of a kind $500 rear sprocket brake caliper, $600 front brembo brake setup, $300 Braided lines and cables. $600 big radius chrome exhaust. $1,000 Dakota Digital speedo and mount and indicators and turns installing soon. $300 custom Ostrich seat, $200 ko battery, and $600 ultimate thunderheart and wiring. $300 keyed ignition with mount, $100 S&S horn and cover.

$ 10,000 - $15,000 if you're lucky. Sorry state of affairs for custom bikes now. And very difficult to sell now.

Is it the guy's list of parts or your homework?

from a brief glance-
couple of things on the list...a bit ?

Looks like 3.35" Utima belt drive, not BDL, they cost under $1000.

Revtech engine 100 go on ebay for under 4 k.

But overall 10-15k truck barter for 10-15k bike might be a fair deal.

Do the trade...immediately!

Shovel52 12-12-2019 07:56 PM

People just don't have any money.. 99% of riders looking for something have an ol' lady to sit on the back, and want something stock and comfortable..If you do find someone that wants it, they probably just got a settlement or inheritance, and don't have anything to spend the money on..far and few between..

donald branscom 12-15-2019 02:59 PM

There are people with the money alright but a chopper is not something they want.
They might want it as a wall decoration for a 6 million dollar house though.

Do a Photoshop picture of the chopper up on a wall, looking out onto a swimming pool.

Spade115 12-16-2019 06:30 AM

nice bike, question though, midwest forged by Jesse James?

chopperfugger 12-16-2019 10:08 AM

Seriously asking or trolling? LOL

I was trying to help the OP out - believing he had not made the deal yet.
There is a lot of smoke in that description.
RevTech 100 motor chopper is NOT a nice bike.
Harley controls are entry level chopper stuff.
The only bolt-on piece is Jesse James gas tank.
Should I make a list of the bolt-on pieces?

I would, and seriously asking, the way its described I read it as it was built with him lol. But parts list, home built is what should be asked.

THESE Questions and Parts I would ask..
one of the WCC guys might be able to help with this as well.

The only bolt on piece is a Jessie James original gas tank that cost $1,200 new.

It has a $1,000 Dyna ignion and coil. this is maybe a 300 dollar kit, thats what I paid for a Dyna S ignition for my FXR

For a bike like this, that is suppose to be stupid high dollar, most people keep receipts or documents on build, see if he has any of that.

Tortolabob2 12-18-2019 09:56 AM

The electrical wires hanging out of the frame are a nice touch....

Shovel52 12-18-2019 03:40 PM

Again, someone would have to be out of their flippin mind to pump anywhere near that kind of $$$ into a motorcycle...Real estate yes..The Jessie James name garb, is rediculous......Shovel52, now were talkin.. :cool:

donald branscom 12-24-2019 12:47 PM
