If you could link the ad or post some pics we would be able to tell more about it.  Btw: Screamin Eagle parts are made by H-D (Or by a third party under license agreement with the MoCo) and are generally not considered aftermarket.  So I would be interested in exactly what comprises $15k in add-ons.

So-called upgrades don't add much to the actual value, especially on an older bike.  Look up book value (shoot for at least two or three sources) to give you an idea of fair market value.

Without a full mechanical inspection it's impossible to tell you if the bike is a good deal or not.  Is this a private seller, or a dealer?  If it's a dealer, will they guarantee the bike for at least 90 days?  If private, will they let you have a mechanic of your choice inspect the bike prior to making a commitment?

Using NADA for my zip code, average retail for a 2003 FLHRSEI2 before mods is in the $6700 range.
