I too have a 1995 Shadow Spirit VT1100C, and the bluebook value for a mint bike is $2000.00, for a sub-standard bike....$1600.00 Perhaps this will give you better scope in your asking price.

Just bought a 1994 Shadow 1100.Bike was sitting for a while Got it running but wont idle,and Back fires .Would this be a carb.problem or something else?

Yes, it is a carb problem. The carbs need to be thoroughly cleaned. It won't idle because the slow speed circuit is gummed up. The back fire is a situation where one carb is driving another. The best carb is driving the engine and the worst carb is running rich. This imbalance causes the backfire.

Getting a fuel dump

Sounds like you need to clean the carbs out, as they are probably gummed/varnished badly after sitting for 2 years.
