I own it and was just curious what opinions were on it’s worth. That’s all. $8500 might be a bit steep for a normal 2005 F4 . . . but I suppose it might be a proper price if it was owned by a celebrity 😉.

For me it would not be worth anything more. Would not know why, unless you are a fan of Fonda...

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Possibly regional interest. A Mecum auction in Vegas might have more interest than, say in the classifieds here in NYC. Now if it were Jane Fonda on the tail I'd be interested. 😂

I own a set of Carbon panels and the tail section was signed by Tamburini and it doesn't have any more value than any other carbon tail, so unless you can find someone who is a huge Fonda fan who also wants a MV then it probably doesn't have any value other than normal. I would keep it and make sure the signature is preserved and enjoy it since you are obviously a fan.

you didnt say anything about the condition at first or provide the link. just that there was graffitti scribbled on the body. looking at the auction page (it looks stock) i -might- pay a tad more than 5. but nowhere even half what they were asking

To me, it's like after-market parts...you never get the value back, but good stuff helps you get the high-end of the valuation range.

Why don't you find a second tail to run, and make the one with the signature office art?

Fantastic idea!
I actually just bought the bike to ride it, not really caring that much about the Fonda connection. Upon his passing I just thought, “Hmmm, I wonder if there’s any benefit here?”.

Not a Peter Fonda fan after some of his comments, but still a celebrity owned bike.

As for their asking price . . . That was probably 5 years ago . . . still it is VERY high, no argument there. I paid nowhere near that price.

Personally, I think the F4-1000S is under valued. From my perspective, it is the most desirable of the first gen 1000s. Sure the R, 312, and 1078 were more performance oriented, but the launch of the 1000S cannot be lived down. I think for the time being, the final iterations of the first gen may fetch a little more $$$$$, but long term I think the "S" is where it's at.

With that said, if my S were to hit the market my asking price would be around the $11,000 mark. In 15 years from now, maybe closer to $20,000. Same for the original F4 (750cc).

They really are rare bikes.

Very interesting thread.

My immediate thought is that if the bike were signed by Ago, people would be all over it with over market price offers. Despite 'Easy Rider', I don't see Peter Fonda being synonymous with motorcycles, so his signature would offer no value adding to me.

In the same vein, I have a Honda NS400R with the tail signed by Freddie Spencer (with proof). Whilst it offers bragging rights, I don't think at sale time that the bike's value will be very much enhanced, BUT it might make it more saleable.

Super cool! Always loved the 400. I heard how awesome they handled (at the time), but never had the pleasure of riding one. You don’t really se them in the States.
