This bike is as close to new as you can get. bought this in 2013 with the idea would have time to ride, then life got in the way. Work got busy and divorce happened. The mileage is accurate, there is 275 miles or less on this bike. The Black is like gun metal and more of matte finish. No scratches or marks on it. It has been taken care of and is ready to be appreciated by someone with the time. Kelly Blue Book says the value is 6900, we are asking 5900. Cant get great bike like this for that price anywhere else with only 275 miles on it.
