IMO the miles on the odometer are not high. Is there anything else about the bike that makes you think you should be wary?

Piglet is a 2004 Sportster 883 with about 14,000 trouble-free miles on the clock. A '97 with only 8200 miles on it is probably a garage gem that gets ridden very seldom. Could be a good deal, but the price does sound low to me. Might want to ask why the bike is being sold. Divorce? Don't ride enough to make it worth while? When was it last ridden?

900 Vulcan Classic

Posted - 02/10/2007 :  8:52 PM
well the dealership that has the bikes has 3 locations the 1200 sportster is at the one 6 hrs away so I havent seen it but I did sit on a 883 and unless the 1200 is quite a bit bigger I didnt like it I am 6ft and 240 and it felt like I was swallowing it up (does that make sense) but I did look at and like a 2000 1100 v-star with just over 10,000 miles for 4500.00 but now am waiting to see if the financing goes through for a 2007 Kawasaki vulcan 900 classic. I have had a 500 and a 750 vulcan and liked them both. I should now monday so keep fingers crossed ( do not have great credit not bad but I am putting 2500.00 down
