Hi Folks,

Been holding onto my old K for too long, I have to let it go!  I have this bad habit of looking at things I dont' use and going 'but I *might* do xx with that later...' and then leave it sitting there.   Missus is hassling me about my odd jobs overflowing onto the back patio, because stuff I don't use anymore is taking up 3/4 of the garage!

No point typing it all out again, as I've popped it up on ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=141151125762

Happy to let it go at the starting price for a forum member Smile

Cheers,

DG

Hmmm, so it didn't sell Sad

Have relisted it for $1100 start, $1400 BIN..   Am I asking too much? There's so much stuff there!  Maybe just a bad time of the year?

Thoughts?

It's a hard time to sell anything, from Christmas till about 2-3 weeks after the kids go back to school and then they start thinking about what's doing for easter and start buying.
Have you thought about putting another box in it and selling as a complete going concern.
The hard thing is to get someone to buy at any price, anything is only worth as much as someone will pay.
The way to sell on ebay is to put a reserve on it and start at $0.99. I was watching a really nice 1992 735 series BMW car with about 10 hail dints and a smashed windscreen and needed a new battery. he couldnt sell for $800 and put it up for straight auction and got $880.
I couldnt get $800 for my 94 Fairlane in good nick but one guy bid $700 and came down the next day from Rockhampton to get it.
Selling anything now is just so darn flakey.

JMHO but reserve pricing is just plain stupid.  Just list an item with a starting price that is the minimum you'll take for it.

I had thought about it, but a replacement box is $350 + shipping, at the best of times.  And then there's still no guarantee that I'd sell it for any more than I want now..

Well that's what I thought..  Two years ago I ended up having to sell all the parts of my spare bike while between jobs, and they sold like hot cakes!   However in the last six months, I've managed to sell the speedo sender from this bike. And that's all! Sad

The Bricks are in a very bad situation now as they are just becoming classics as far as rego and clubs are concerned but even the guys that are classic nuts dont see them as classic they are just a modern bike that is getting a bit old and has all that electronics on them. My Z1300 Kawasaki is in the same situation and there was no where as many of them as Ks.
Not many people want them and there are still quite a few around but we cant get them all for $250 as waz did and there seems to be more spares than bikes on the road so the price is crap unless of course you want a right pannier or a comfort seat.

Hey Rick, from what I see most classic bike nuts with their BSA Triumphs ect, spend most of their time in the garage with one hand on there #ick and the other on a cleaning rag, and only riding their bikes once a month on a club runs, thats if the weathers good.. Though it is great to see those bikes out on club runs , the biggest difference I see is that most K owners are still putting plenty of miles on their bikes in all conditions, without the fear of, if they ride it too much they may wear it out. You can call the K Bike old or a classic or a modern classic but don't call it in a bad situation. With the thousands of members on this forum alone it will help the mighty K survive well into the future. And as far as more spares than bikes on the road that may be right, but I still see many Ks on the road in my travels, which is indicative of how reliable these bike are, which is probably why it can be hard to sell second hand spares sometimes, as most K owners today keep their bikes it top running condition, so the need for second hand spares isn't as great unless you are restoring a bike.

Hey Rick, please don't take offence to my comment, as that is only my opinion, and I don't mind praising the K when I get a chance.

What do ya know, it sold!!  Bloke up in Inverell bought it, bugger me that's a hike!  Looks like a courier is picking it up this weekend, will be kinda sad to see it go.  Though it'll be nice to have half of my garage back, once the bike and all it's boxes of spares go..

It's funny, I was trying to work out how long I'd owned the bike.  And it sold on the 12th of this month, at 12:16pm?  Well I BOUGHT it on the 12th of January, 2006, at 1:13pm. So I owned it for exactly 8 years and 1 hour.  That's freaky, right there!

Phil, the buyer wanted it somewhat back together for transport, so I've spent the last couple of nights after work putting all the parts back on it.  What do you know, it started on the second button press last night - was kinda impressed!
