Value of 08 600rr fixed w/ Chinese Fairings?
I'm interested in a 600rr that has a rebuilt title because it was stolen and dumped (crashed). It needs quite a bit of work to come back to life (which for some reason I enjoy working on these kinds of bikes).
I want to do a trackday or two on it, and sell it come late spring (think May-June).
It looks like I'll be able to pick up the motorcycle for $2000. It needs $1100 in parts. I accounted for everything including nut and bolt prices, shop expenses (my personal garage). This includes, Auctmarts fairings, quick accel chain/sprockets, tires, fluids, general lubrication, new levers, front fork rebuild.
So I guess I'm asking, is it worth putting approx $3100 in to this bike to enjoy it for a bit, with it having a rebuilt title? It looks like 600rr's sell around $4500, so I was hoping I could get $3500 with the rebuilt title. Sound crazy? or fair market... Discuss.
