So they're asking the 2004 MSRP for this bike?
How does one forget a bike in a crate?
In my home state (and probably others as well), if you don't sell that bike within a year, you start paying taxes on it.
That's why, if not sold at years end, the dealer would sell it at or close to cost just to get it out of stock.
Which was the main reason one bought a bike in the fall or winter.
So I'm guessing CA is either different in this regard, or the dealer didn't mind paying taxes every year on this unsold bike for whatever reason.
