990 Barn Bike - What's it worth?

Found a super-low miles 2011 990 Adventure that's in rough shape. Basically ridden a couple times from new and left to rot. It starts and sounds OK but looks like hell (filthy). Was dropped on the left side (both turn signals broken, tank scratched, etc). Chain is rusty. Kept outdoors or some sort of leaky shed/barn by the looks of it.

Any thoughts on what this thing is worth as-is? Thinking about buying it if the price is right (i.e. really low) and adding an adventure bike to the stable on the cheap.

Probably not worth your time, just go ahead and send me the address and contact info of seller...

Sounds like pretty superficial problems, these bikes are meant to be dirty anyway. New chain, signals, oil and you should be golden.

IDK, I'd low ball at 7k? KBB is 10k, and honestly there are probably a few people around here that would pay that much for a 2011 with low miles...

Don't know who the seller is. Was informed of the bike by an acquaintance that thought I might be interested. No pics either. It seems that clean, nicely farkled 990s are selling for $8K - $10K based on my limited searching in the Flea Market so far.

Yeah, it would definitely be worth sniffing out. Good luck with it!

Salvage title?

$5K, perhaps $6K max.

Plan on going through every thing. It could take 10-15 hours of shop time to get it all clean, greased and working again. That means it will really take a normal person 2 to 3 times that to get it done. Plus parts.

I used to work at a shop where we had a competition on who could find the biggest mouse nest in a bike. Some barn finds just weren't worth fixing. I gave away an old XR350 that was rusted into one solid piece. If it sort of starts and drives, then I'd spend at least $6k on it.

I'm not even positive the owner wants to sell it, but should I end up with it, it will be gone over with a fine tooth comb. Remove, clean, and inspect everything. Replace all fluids. Check all the wiring and hoses for signs of mouse damage, etc. Plus it's bone stock so there would be lots of mods to do while it's apart. We'll see. My contact info is supposedly being forwarded to the owner and I may not ever hear anything about it.

Just got a call from the owner. He wants $7500 for it and it is on its way to a shop to be sold. If I wanted it, it was a "do the deal right now" thing. That's more than I want to spend on a stock bike with a questionable history. I told him I would give him $6K for it. He declined. BTW, it only had 155 miles on it. Maybe the shop will change its mind once it sees it. Dunno. Worth a shot.

Without being able to inspect the bike, that was the right call.

These things don't like to sit for a couple months in a heated garage.

This. Way more sensible to buy a used one thats ready to roll, versus a project that is a potential money pit.

This...again. I'm so happy to have been shopping right now. The choices are amazing! I was having to make a list of which bikes were what and where, I was getting them confused.
