Value of my Silverwing 600 2014

Post by Sylar » Wed Oct 02, 2019 1:55 pm

Since I bought my Cruisym 300 just over a year ago I find I am using my Black Silverwing less and less. I just find it too heavy and the cruisym suits me better. I have 42,000mls on it. It has heated grips a Honda top box, I did the 40,00ml service recently and fitted a new drive belt, it has Dr Pulley sliders. M.O.T is till July 2020. A givi adjustable screen is fitted. I just do not know what kind of price it should fetch or I should ask any suggestions would be helpful.

I just did a search on Autotrader, and the prices seem pretty random! People were asking between £3k and £4k for anything made between 2011 and 2014! Having 42k miles is going to put people off though....

There is currently a 64 Reg Silverwing one owner with 10750 miles on the odometer on Biketrader for £2950.00 it does appear to be a 2010 import mind you - then there is a 2013 dealership bike with 8654 miles on the odometer for £3995 - considering yours has covered 42K I would say maximum three grand

Although the silverwing will happily double that milage, I think most buyers will offer a low price because of it.
I'd stick it on ebay at a low start price ( this will gain attention), list it over 10 days, and watch the bids creep up. List lots of details of how good it is and that its a fantastic machine for the coming winter months which are round the corner.Then you should get a fair outcome.
Im not a gynecologist, but I dont mind taking a look.

Judging by the ratty examples of the Silver Wing currently being bought by new owners on both sides of the Atlantic and the amount of things that need fixing or replacing on them, well looked after examples like yours appear to be a rarity now.

I don't think the mileage is an issue either, if you remember that British bloke on the silverwing forum that had sorted out and fettled two 80k plus Silver Wings for him and his son, and both were running sweet as a nut.

You could also return like the prodigal son to the silverwing forum and mention your Silver Wing is for sale. There's a few Brits on there that have bought older Silver Wings that have been badly maintained, or are tatty from big city commuting and just plain neglect. There may also be current owners of older models that would now like a later ABS equipped or more fuel efficient one.

Nice to read that you're enjoying your Cruisym, I've no regrets about downsizing to the new Forza almost a year ago.

Well, its not that the 42k miles actually IS a problem, but many people will perceive it as one. Dealers seem to regard more than 3k a year as High Mileage!

That's true, but Mr Sylar is selling and not part exchanging and won't be playing the dealers usual game with the saleman consulting his little blue book and tut-tutting about high mileage.

Anyhow even if he was, reading some of the posts on here about changing scoots, depreciation or high mileage counts for nothing. Everyone seems to get a fantastic deal, shafts the saleman and gets all sorts of free shit thrown in. ;)

I thank everyone for their comments and advice. I do not have a problem with keeping and running the Silverwing, it is just so heavy to keep moving it out of my garage when I want a bit more room( it has always been garaged). I can afford to keep and run both bikes. I just feel a bit guilty when I use the SYM, bur, as Horobags pointed out, it is a better bike to use in the winter months that are coming. There is a bloke that's been after buying my Silverwing. Every week on my Southport run, if I am on the SYM, he asks if I still have the wing and what I want for it, now I know roughly what price I could be asking. Trouble is, when I ride the wing it feels just right ,but so does the SYM. Again thankyou everyone for your input

The Italian Job was made in 1969, that's fifty years ago. I doubt very much wherever the film locations will look the same now as they did in the film.

I've stopped going back to the area of Carlisle where I lived and went to school. I used to have the occasional nostalgia ride round the area every couple of years. Gradually everything familiar has either gone, or changed almost beyond recognition.
