King Mountain Indians
« on: June 14, 2017, 01:16:19 PM »
I saw on the Indian of Charlotte, North Carolina, website that they have some brand new, never-before-delivered Kings Mountain Indians for sale.

Great looking bikes, especially the turquoise and white, and the sky blue and ivory color schemes.  But they're priced at $33,000+!  Absolutely ridiculous, especially now that Polaris sells a better bike at a sane price (though that same sanity doesn't apply to their parts and accessories).  Sure, the Kings Mountain Indians are rare, but that's because there was no demand for them -- and there was no demand because they were so grossly overpriced, otherwise I'd have bought one in 2008 or 2009.  That was a ridiculous price eight or nine years ago; it makes even less sense now.  How much is a used Kings Mountain worth today?  What would one of these be worth the minute you took it off the dealer's lot?  They're not going to be valuable collectors' items during any of our lifetimes.  Still, they're gorgeous bikes.  Just thought I'd share this and hear what others think of them.

They might sell a couple to collectors, but I doubt any more than that! Nutty for all the reasons you laid out.

It looks like they only have a few and they're appealing to the collectors.  They also have a 2010 Dark Horse model for sale at $25,999.  The interesting thing is they give the production numbers:

"The 2010 Chief is very rare with only 340 bikes built in the total production of all models.  Only 1100 total Kings Mountain Chiefs were ever built from 2009-2013..."


I'd like to have the turquoise and white one, but not for more than $15,000.
