Should I trade my car for this?

http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/mcy/1377955335.html

This kid is serious about buying my car. After I said I would take cash instead of trade, he throws his Dad's bike on Craigslist. I'm actually thinking about it. I was hoping for something a little bigger than a Honda 1100, but I know this thing would run right, and make a great starter bike.

I love my car, but I'm getting nickeled and dimed and I know this kid would fix it up right. I guess out of the million or so third-gen camaros, I got the basketcase. What do you guys think for a straight up trade?

He originally was going to give me the bike and $500 and I'm still not sure if I want to take it. I would pretty much break even, but I just want to try something different.

The bike I was looking at was a Vulcan 1500. Now A 1100 Honda...

Before you decide to trade ... check kbb.com and see what the bike is really worth. The bike is 8 yrs old, even with the low miles it may not be worth the asking price. Motorcycle purchases (used) is not the same as buying a car. Lou
