The NADA book is; lo-$6,900 avg.- $9,100 that puts it in the middle right now in the auction. The $4,000 in aftermarket upgrades are worth close to zero when selling. A lot of people want their bikes stock.
The auction still has over a day and 1/2 to go and the seller has your $7,500 bid already. Why would he sell it to you for $7,500 cash and not let the auction run some more?
In the sellers defense, if it was my bike I wouldn't take it around the block for a buyer to see it. If you want it, you come to me.
Finally, don't ask for advise involving money from anyone except your family. Keep your money in your pocket. You sound WAY to eager to get a bike at any cost.
