This might not be the right place for this thread, but I did not find any better.

As some might know I have 2 K100 bikes in my garage. The other is fully redone and renewed customized RT from 1986 and other one almost completetly original RS/SE from 1988.

Well the situation right now is, that I bought a nice sportscar for summer, and I do not have that spark for motorcycling right now. I know that that spark will come one day, so I will keep that modified K100 for myself. I was planning on selling the other one. I bought it cheap and it is in really good shape, but it seems to be hard to sell, even on low price.

And now we are getting to the point. I started to think that would I get decent prices from certain parts of the bike? So would it be better to strip it and sell some parts, and leave some (like transmission) spare for myself.

It would have for example SE fairings in decent shape, fuel tank (would keep the pump though), seat and fully functional ABS system.

What do you think? Grazy and foolish?

(Paid 2000,00 euros for this bike)

To reverse paraphrase Aristotle, in this case, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. This smacks of 'Buy and Sell', so that is where I shall place the post. Good luck with your four wheel endeavour and we patiently await your eventual return to two.

Sorry to see you're moving them on Tennox! I hope it's the standard RS and not your custom build. Post some pics of the bike here it will help the sale!

It's strange, isn't it. The write off figure on my 1993 K75s was $6500 when I bought it in 2003, which was what I paid for it. A few years later it was up to $8000. The price has come down again now, but is still more than I could sell it for. Individual parts are expensive from wreckers or dealers, but generally cheap from other owners.

Parting out a perfectly functional and gorgeous Special Edition?!?!

It's only original once.  I'd say that if you won't get much for it, put it in the back of your garage and wait till you realize the error of your ways.

I know... And in Finland it would be possible to put on "Museum registry" at year 2018. Which would mean insurance costs of something like 40e / year. Maybe I will keep it in my garage and just wait.

It seems that there are many interested on my bike, so I think it shall stay in one piece for now.
