Any idea what is a fair selling price in BC would be for a 2007 (purchased August-2007) black Vee, with SW Motech skid plate and center stand, Magura Bars-AX Bend, Givi crash bars and screen, Superbrace and Suzuki gel seat? Bike has around 7k, never dropped. My brother may have some health problems and is thinking of selling his.

I know Stroms are pretty uncommon but the Autotrader is a good place to estimate the value of a used vehicle. I don't know what he could ask for the bike but he'll do better selling the farkles separately...and I would be interested in the Superbrace.
I bought it on Craig's List for $6300. It was advertised for $6500 and had 5100k, but NO farkles. You are usually better off to sell the farkles seperately to get the best return on your investment. Should you decide to go that route, I would be interested in the Givi crash bars and screen, the centrestand and the gel seat. Good luck with the sale of the bike.
He hasn't fully made up his mind yet, but thanks for the info. If I tell him it's worth about $6,300, I know he will just give me his bike for free That would mean I would have two of the same bike, but I could live with that
O7 list price on a 1000 was $11,999. Add the farkles and it's an expensive combination. Since it only has 7000 (km?) and is all set up for the next owner, I would expect that an asking price of $9000 Cdn is reasonable. Maybe settle for $8500 and everyone is happy. Even if you bought an 08 new, it would likely cost you $11,300 or so plus taxes. Then you'd have to farkle it. $9000 (settle on $8500) for a nearly new well farkled 1000 is a good deal I think.
