I paid 1500 for mine..It was already bobbed. It had no turn signals and a few minor issues from the previous owner which needed to be addressed.. I think most would say i paid to much. But there are no such bikes in my area. I found mine sitting by the road for sale near my house. If you see Champion spark plugs in an engine like I did you know the guy is a cheap skate. No offense meant if your using them. I've always had better luck with NGK. You never hardly ever get your own bike mods paid for when you sell it IMO. Check local listings and see what others are getting for theirs. Sweet ride by the way.....

I paid $2000 CAD for mine with saddle bags (that don't fit) and he threw in a trickle charger. Not a bad deal for an 07 with 9300 kms. It's all stock though. No modifications at all. (But very pretty none the less.)

This is my experience of buying and selling bikes I have restored over the past 8 years.
I am a restorer based in the GTA and you will have a hard time getting close to $3K for a Rebel 450. (stock or modified) Each modified bike is really about getting the acceptance of the potential customer to your mods and the desire to own that model of bike.

I have bought 3 Honda Rebel 450's and restored them (stock) with two being under a $1000.00 purchase price each and the third was in excellent condition for $1500.00. I have never seen a Rebel 450 sell for $3K! on Kijiji in 8 years. I am on Kijiji many times a day looking for potential new purchases, so I don't miss much in all of Ontario.

The Rebel 450's that I sold; one sold for just under $2K and the second was at $2500 and I was really fortunate with the right customer who really wanted a Rebel 450 and a high level restoration. The third my friend has as her current bike and so it was never sold just restored.

I just sold a fully and I mean fully rebuild 1983 CB 1000C that was in amazing 9 out of 10 close to showroom condition. Hundreds of hours into the restoration that I never count, as I love the challenge of the rebuild. It sold for $3300.00 and took since last Sept initially for a few months and relisting again this spring. I had over 3000 views in total on Kijiji and probably less than 6 semi serious tire kickers.

Sorry to rain on your parade and I truly hope that you do find a buyer at a price that makes you happy. Yet bikes rarely seem to sell for what we feel they should sell for, or for what they are really worth... the market will set that price.

"Common Sense" .... really isn't that common!

I wouldn't pay over $2,500 for a stock 450, and wouldn't consider one that was modified, even if it came with all the stock parts. There's too much you can't see during a cursory buying visit that might have been modified, such as wiring changes and carb mods.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
