Value of restored 84 1000

PostAuthor: dobiejason1983 » Wed Jun 21, 2017 10:48 pm

So I recently purchased a 84 1000 with 4000 some original miles.. What do you guys think it would be worth fully restored (original paint all matching covers and such) this is one of the gold viragos with the brown two tone paint..

That depends on a few other factors, like what condition is it in now ? 4000 miles is not a lot, but tells nothing of the overall condition.

I'll post some pictures. There's actually 2 bikes we're going to try to make one restore with the best of the parts and just make the other one run for a fun bike.

Thanks Bill

Honestly, unless is NOS, not much. Silk purse, sows ear...

It's very very hard to find gold trim that is suitable for restoration. The gold doesn't hold up well in sunlight.

Kelly Blue Book for my zip code says $1450 retail in excellent condition. In other words, if you are looking to restore with an eye to make money, it's not gonna be much.
