Used Harley Davidson Road KingSeems like used Harleys are getting harder to sell these days. Take my buddy Dave for example, he can't seem to sell his Anniversary Road King.

He's had it listed in several places, including eBay, and has received some bites, but no takers. And it's a really cool looking Road King. Check out all the photos on his girlfriend's website.

It actually has an H-D Anniversary edition, custom paint set, #96 out of 100, but he's also including the stock anniversary paint set. It's got ape hangers, tons of chrome stuff, stage 1 mod, and only 9,000 miles.

Granted, the price is higher than most Anniversary edition Road Kings, at $18,000, but then again, he's got tons of chrome and performance parts on it.

So what's the deal?

I suppose the 2007 Harleys, with their 96" motors and 6-speed gear boxes are making it really tough to sell older model bikes. The folks at H-D know their marketing pretty well, and know that existing Harley owners can't resist the temptation to buy a new bike.

Another reason is the price. You can already buy a 2007 Road King for the same price, and get a bigger motor, and a sixth gear. But if you plan to trick out a stock bagger to look like this, be prepared to fork out another $10,000 for the custom paint set, all the chrome, the performance parts, as well as the labor if you plan to have a shop do the work for you. At $18,000, this is actually a steal. But most people don't realize this.

If anything, I suppose companies like eBay and Cycle Trader are going to find big business as people try to sell their older model Harleys.

Oh, are you interested in making an offer on my buddy's bike? Call him at his work, Auto Doctor, in Temecula, CA. He owns the place. He repairs cars for a living, and also owns Dave's Performance Karting, a performance kart shop.

He's maintained this Road King all himself. He's a wrench, and loves to work on bikes, so he does all his own maintenance and upgrades. He's selling this because he already owns two other Harleys, and wants to make room in his garage for a new "project bike". It's a great Road King, runs like a raped ape, and attracts chicks everywhere it goes.
