I think the best way to sell it would be list it on Ebay. I have sold quite a bit of stuff including some higher dollar items. I have sold everything from a farm tractor to 99 cent items. If you don't have any experience selling on ebay I will be glad to help you. Or I will even be willing to list it for you. The way to sell a higher priced item is to start the bidding low and let people start a bidding war. Fewer people will start the bidding on a higher starting bid price. First off you have to know exactly what the least amount that you will take for the husaberg. So you can start the bidding low but set a reserve price and/or a "buy it now" option. It is really best if you don't even use a "buy it now" because people may see that price as out of their price range. And don't disclose you reserve price as that may keep some from bidding. You will always have some ask what you reserve is, but you should really refrain from disclosing this. Set the auction to run during 2 weekends or at the least set it to end on a Sunday night when more people will be at home and on the computer. The ending time is important. The auction should end at a time people on the east and west coast will be able to be around during the auctions final hour when you are likely to get the most bids. 10pm eastern or 9 central time is what I have found to be the best ending time. Show lots of photos, with a digital camera if you have one. Check you email often for any questions that potential buyers have and answer them promptly. If you are interested in listing this and have any question, just shoot me a PM or email me.

I have bought two motorcycles (including my Husaberg) from and sold one on CycleTraderOnline. I am not sure what they charge now but you get great coverage.

Hmmm...... Maybe if you did'nt constantly bash your Berg and it's resale value on say.... international forums like this one. You just may be able to sell it.
Anybody who did any research at all before buying there
Berg is fully aware of the price of admission for joining this group. In most cases it is a high risk high reward venture.
Just my 2 cents.

Looks as though someone is parting out an '03 on ebay as we speak. The entire rear wheel assembly is up to $300 at the moment. The total on the plastics, complete rear and front wheel and radiator is up to $558 and this stuff was just listed a little over 24 hours ago. Several of the things have no bids yet but I will keep an eye on the totals and what they sell for and keep you posted if you want. I am on ebay quite often buying and selling so I am already there, so it will just take a few minutes a day to keep track of it all.

That's pretty pricy for the rear wheel. I bought a complete set, front and rear from a guy on THIS site for $300.

Just a comment............ Bad news seems to travel fast doesn't it? Seems like allot of folks are very willing to accept bad news about Berg's at face value. But bad news about "other" bikes just doesn't seem to make the media rounds. Like the fact that Hondas' 450 needs valves and springs at 20 hours, and all the problems that "other" high perfromance four strokes have that never get reported. There is also good luck and bad.
