So I'm selling my 2013 V7 Racer. Not sure if I'm getting another bike or just getting out of moto's all together. Anyway, since it's been a long time since I've sold a moto, and the options to sell have changed dramatically, I thought I'd tap the boards wisdom. Of course I'm aware of the ability to list here, I'm also considering ebay, Facebook marketplace groups, and Cycle Trader. Any suggestions, experiences good or bad?Grazie,Andy
Start with the Moto Guzzi groups but as stated prepare to lower your price if you don't get any response to your original ads.
I've sold 4 Guzzis on Craigslist, going back about 12 years. Not a tire kicker among the buyers. Usually, the bikes sold to the first caller. One case that amuses me to this day was in 2012 when former NorCAl MGNOC Area Rep Don Van Zandt (still my best friend even though I moved to Texas) asked me to sell his 1979 SP-1000. I spiffed it up a bit and did a service on it and listed it in Craigslist, San Francisco. Late that day, I was working an evening shift as a hospital clerk and came home at Midnight. Wife says, "You got a call on Don's bike...from Melbourne". "Florida?" "No, Australia. Name's Mark Harris and he said he'd call back in a half hour". Mark turned out to be a serious Guzzisti who wanted a running, original SP and after a brief chat he sent me the money via Pay Pal. Don and I took the SP to West Coast Shipping in Richmond, CA who ship many bikes and cars worldwide. Mark had used them before and they delivered the SP in fine shape. as Mark advised me 2 weeks later.. Another Guzzi went to Otis Gray, then in Casa Grande, AZ (later moved to Mountain Home, ID) who never saw the bike before he bought it. Otis was an experienced Guzzisti and wanted a "hydro", which I offered. I should add that all but Don's SP went for the stated price. Mark got hit for a few hundred dollars on the exchange rate so I dropped the price accordingly, happy the SP was going to a very good home.Ralph
the market seem to really be slowing down. Dealerships are fully stocked to the point we are seeing incentive programs occuring and people are just not buy like they were in the past couple of years.
I sold my MGX here on WG in 3 days. Unfortunately that member has never resurfaced or returned. I'd love to know what's happening with the bike.
Too embarrassed to ever show his face again...
Craigs list isn't dead. I tried to sell my 01 EV for cheap here early this spring. I put it on the Tucson CL and sold it instantly with 3 others wanting to see it if the deal fell through.
"Why am I selling? Well, I have a 10 year old son and I want this gone before he starts begging me to ride it." I sure understand! Lol! Beeeutiful bike!
I can't get behind that sentiment.Reminds me of a time I was selling a Jeep and touted the ski racks that came with it. The couple looked at me and said "we would never do something so reckless" - move along then, nothing to see here.Holy carp ya know.I literally BOUGHT our last Moto Guzzi JUST so our then 5 y/o could ride it with us. He just turned 9 and asked me to make sure I ride him to soccer camp this summer instead of taking the Jeep. I was like "you know that means you're gonna have to put armored pants over your kit right" and he's like "oh yeah, and boots, but I'll switch to my cleats when I get there".
FWIW, I do take all 3 for rides on the bike regularly (11, 9, 7). I get what you are saying and agree with it but when I was learning to ride folks weren't driving 70mph with a cell phone in their hand doing makeup. It isn't the only reason for the sale, but it is one of them. I do have my eye on the Z900RS and then my whole excuse goes out the window!
