Tough Market for used VTXs

I purchased a 14 Valk and advertised my heavily customized 1800C for $5,800. I have lowered it $100 every week and now down to $3,800 with no interest. Eventually it will be free. 🤪

Nice bike. Yes, the used bike market is very soft. It's below Blue Book values here..

It’s the car tire killing interest

May as well just keep it.
I also have a 15 Valk.... keeping the X cause I ain’t giving it away.

Came close to pulling the trigger on an '06 Spec 2 F with only 11.6K miles on it this week.


Decided to do a Stage 1 and 2 on my Fat Boy instead.

Wondering if there are fewer riders in my area. Older guys hanging it up and younger guys are riding smaller sport bikes or not at all. The people I speak to about riding here all respond about how dangerous it is. For me, I love riding and dislike wasting time sitting in commute traffic.

yes it is!!
tons of vtx 1300 for sale up here in new york with under 10.000 miles.
get them all day long for 3,500 bucks or lower and in really great condition.
mine with almost 40.000 miles makes it a low value bike...i would be lucky to get 2,500 for it

Buy the one you want from the get-go. The rest are just affordable parts bikes.

Same in my area. I started to notice less bikes on the roads, at hangouts and bike nights. Makes you wonder where have all the bikers and bikes gone. A lot of people seemed to stop riding.
