Banks Chip: How Much???

I recently got a new Harley & I want to buy some parts for it. I've been banging around my garage to see what I could ebay/Craig's List & I found my old Banks Big Hoss chip in a box I had on one of my shelves. I had originally gotten the whole "Big Hoss Bundle" from Banks when I started modifying my truck, but after I bought my house & moved I lost the receipt. I know nobody would buy any chip used(yes........I know..........especially a Banks chip)used for full price, so I was wondering how much one would go for. I still have the original box it came in, the owner's manual, & even the little scruffy pad to clean off the dielectric grease of the ECM.


NOW: before this turns into a shooting gallery on Banks, I'm asking you, pretty please with sugar on top, to be fair & serious. Here's a few guidelines I'm asking everyone kindly to follow:

1. No, I don't have the "Super-Mega-God almighty horsepower" sticker for it. Please- no sticker comments. Thank you.
2. Yes, I know this chip doesn't compare to DP, SCT, or TW. I own the TW & just want to sell this chip instead of recommending DP, SCT, or TW to either myself or any potential buyers. Thank you.
3. There isn't ANY negative commentary, opinion, insult, etc. I haven't heard about Banks equipment. I only want to hear how much this chip's worth. The Banks parts currently on my truck have dwindled quite a bit since the "Big Build", so let's just keep it @ how much the chip's worth. Thank you.
4. If anyone would just like to give me money to buy the bike parts & not have me pay them back, I'll just shut my mouth & move on to getting some genuine H-D parts.............THANK YOU!!!!

I also know I should probably look on ebay/Craig's List to check comparison prices, but it's been a while since I've been posting threads on the forum & would just like to get some feedback & see if any friends show up. Thank you guys so much in advance!

Thanks for the advice, guys! I took your advice & gave it a shot for a couple hundred & posted on Craig's List & ebay. I won't hold my breath, though.

No I don't think Banks is too bad, they just don't offer much for the 7.3. I couldn't have gotten my injectors, turbo, HPOP, etc. & have the Big Hoss support it all because he just "gave up" on the 7.3 & just didn't go the extra mile for tuning capabilities. He doesn't offer too much more for the 6.0. As far as what he does offer for the 7.3 & the 6.0, it's great for the people who want the ultimate in bolt-on parts & that's it.
