Would this be considered good deal?

Being that I already own the bike so there is no going back now. I got it a few day's ago so tell me what you think.

I got the VN900 custom, it's black 2008 with 5600 miles on it. it was garage keep and when I say it is show room new looking, if you where to see it you could not tell if it was even ridden. When I went to see the bike I could not believe how perfect it was, it was flawless, no nicks or dings or even a scratch. I paid Tax, title and licence out the door for $4500 It rides perfecte.

So what you think was it wort it??

Thats a pretty good deal!
I always advise people not to buy something new unless is a brand new redesing model. Why pay $7k for a new vn900 when u saved 3k for one that looks as new.

$4500 OTD sounds like a good price. You'll need all that money you saved to personalize it.

The reaason it was so cheap was the guy selling it owned a small car sales lot and someone traded the bike in for a car and the car dealer closed down the lot Dec 30 and was needing the money. He did my tax title right on the spot. I got my plate yesterday so some times to good does come true.

Now that you mention that you got it from a small car sales lot makes me nervous.
Some of these guys buy them at auctions and repair them (cars & motorcycles). With over 5k miles on it it should have some rock chips or something that would be noticeable. Again, now that you stated small car dealer and you stated the bike is in show room conditions with not a single scratch I wonder if they repaint it...

Cool

I bet you'll be fine! My son has a 2007 900 custom he bought new. It has 5,000+ miles on it and he keeps it clean & nice. It has been mistaken for brand new several times when we're riding! Once, even by a friend of his. He thought for sure my son had traded bikes already. Some people just keep their things in top condition. It takes time, but it can be done! So, if you checked it out good and were satified with it then relax and enjoy it. They are very nice bikes!

Enjoy the ride!
