What are these worth?

I have a set of Suzuki factory side bags for on my DL650 that I'm thinking about selling. I'm looking at switching to a set of HappyTrail bags. They are in pretty good shape (a few minor dings) and would include all the mounting hardware and tail rack. If I recall right, I paid about $800 for the set but curious if anyone has a rough idea what they would be worth.

If they are the new style bags made by "Soft," those and $5 will almost buy you a cup of coffee.

I all seriousness, what exactly are you wanting to sell? Two side bags, side racks and the tail rack? Are you selling the trunk, too? What color? A picture of the the bags, particularly the dings would help. As a general rule of thumb, used farkles are worth around 50% of the new price if they are in good shape.

I don't think you're going to be too thrilled with the answer, Goose.

I'm not at all qulaified to answer, but given when you can get a set of Caribou luggage for, I would think the OEM luggage could be worth for than a few hundred bucks.
