ok mat heres the scoop, your gladiator is worth about 200,000 to 210,000 depending what you have have in it. a top gun in the range your talking bout will be about 115,000 to 120,000. 120,000 being on the high side. boat beter be super nice with some extra love in there.
to be honest with ya, dont know why you would stray from what you were doing. you were on your way to setting up a very nice rig, for a few extra dollars. you went from having a super nice ride to a stock top gun. this is one of the reason why im doing up my cafe racer, not too many of them out there and when im dont with what i want to do, ill have the only one with my set up. in your case the' re not very many older guns out there with big power and some #6s. very cool in the cig world. in my opinion, and im sure same goes for the rest of the cig gurus, do up your older gun with 800's or 750's and some #6s, with a new interior and dash. now you have the boat you want, the power you want, and you wont be so itchy to trade up for a good long while. stick with your plan, its a good one.... dave
