    I'm 73 too and traded my CC on a Boardwalk a few years ago.I love it.It is low and easy to ride.It will probably be my last 2 wheeler.I might get a Ural next year,I had one before and liked running the back roads and going shopping on it.

    You know, I hate to think about it, but at 67 (and strong still) I can manage the CCT just fine. But, there will come that day when it's not so easy and not so far off now (maybe). I started thinking about picking up a nice KP to ride against that day when the CCT gets too heavy. That plan is still the the working stage, but it seems to make sense........And....I love my CCT SO DAMN MUCH!

    Stick to your guns. It will sell. Just because others have given deals of the century out there doesn’t mean you have to. Low mileage, original owner, and well kept ….. like you said ….. there’s a buyer for that seat.

    When you go to advertise the bike be sure to mention that it has had nothing but Spectro oil changes for those 21k miles and watch that bike fly out your garage !!

    The market will always dictate what you can get for something.

    I was writing a long involved message but changed my mind.

    Victory went on deep sale when the plug was pulled.

    After a bit prices stabilized.

    Then they climbed up a bit

    Now they're nearing that teetering age where they will be all over the place in value.

    Current owners will see a good deal or an expensive one.

    Potential new owners will see good deals or consider it too risky for an orphaned brand.

    In a decade or so(maybe sooner) nostalgia will start to tick up for previous/current owners or those seeking something rare.

    But that's not a given either, you see people clamoring for a 57 Bel Air or 65 Mustang and paying serious money, but you're not seeing people paying big money for a 65 Rambler Marlin.

    Ask what you want, hope you get it.

    For every seat there is an ass

    There’s the market then there’s those who feel they have to pay for something no matter the cost because it was first built or last built or signed by someone famous or owned by someone famous. Example. The 1st 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat off the assembly line sold for $825k ! Then the Engelstad family matched that selling price raising the total amount to $1.65 million. Ok so the sale helped a non profit organization that helps people with mental disabilities? So you have to ask ….the guy that spent $825k ….. is he a patient there cause I’m pretty sure the 2nd Hellcat that rolled off rhe line sold for maybe around $75k ….and the ones after too. IDK …. IM just saying people will pay for the right reasons and sometimes the wrong reasons. How do you look at it logically ?

    Sales is a strange "business". Sometimes all that you have to do to achieve a price (high or low) is just be willing to say no or walk away. I never look at it as an emotional affair. Seems to me that is when you loose.
    My mother walked out on a new car purchase over .25. That's right, one quarter. And they followed her to her car to make the sale. For her, business was business and if you quoted a price and she agreed, then that was the price . Needless to say, but she taught me some things.

    Never really been a Marlin fan, obviously Remington didn't think much of them either.

    When it comes to lever action I much prefer Henry firearms.

    Most of my bolt actions are Remington with a Winchester 70 I won in a raffle.

    Also have a couple of the Mosin Nagants that picked up when they were sub $100 each(also got the matching revolvers).
