About to advertise my falco that I bought from a member on here
I have had it for 5 years now and done very low miles , It has a host of improvements and its std parts , I would wish it would sell as is however I just don’t think the value of the extras will command any extra cash value yet it would be a shame to remove its goodies
What do folk think will the extra parts bring extra cash or do I really have to get the spanner’s out ?

Go into a bit more detail about the extras, that gives more of a clue as to where you may make ore lose money, plus it will get the vultures circling.....
One has appeared already

Bikes, in General, tend to be a personal thing, Ask me how I know?

Buyers like to add things to their bikes and put their stamp on it.

I would sell any additional extras separate and put the bike back to standard.

I guess this depends on what you want from the sale.
If you want to see the thing you have created roll off with a new owner benefiting from what you've created, then sell as is.

If you want the max money and:
    1) Have the time to strip it down to swap parts over
    2) Have the additional time to sell parts separately, package and despatch them all
    3) Are prepared to be stuck with some parts for maybe quite a while

Then selling goodies separately is normally considered to generate the greater money.

Pros and cons in both
